You can keep your four F's . if they are so important. Clearly you do not have an issue like the Northern Ireland border to deal with. But this is not about the four F's. It is about letting the UK leave the EU without damaging the whole construct. If we crash out with no deal, everyone loses. Is that a price the Germans are really willing to pay? Because let's be honest. It is only the Germans who really have any say.
You wouldn't have that issue with the Northern Irish border if it wasn't for Brexit!
Nearly half of UK's exports go to EU whereas only 8% of the EU's go to UK. Who has the bigger issue you think?
Do you think Mercedes, BMW and Volkswagen are going to be happy to have to pay tariffs on all the cars they sell here? The whole thing is madness, but it doesn't have to be this way. It is only the protectionist ethos of the EU that is making things so difficult. And you know as well as I do that we will not be the only ones to go.
