We aren't and we continue to buy less and less from the EU as time goes on.
If you did alright, you would sell more than you import. It is on exports you, as a country, earn money. Not from imports.

Not true either.

If you can buy better quality cheaper foods elsewhere then you save money.

Also if you make the goods in the country that is your biggest market or use your own domestic market you don't have to export at all.

It is from an accounting perspective.

You also confuse sovereignty with nationalism. One of our biggest strengths outside the EU is complete control of our trade policy.

The single market rules we were forced to follow for manufacturing made our products much more expensive than they needed to be in the first place. So, the future for the UK is much more optimistic outside the EU than in it when you look at the bigger picture. A lot of our manufacturing closed down because of the single market when you look back in history.

Here is some info on the future according to the IMF

Re: Brino

The IMF not only reported on the UK (the I stands for international).

IMF forecasts stronger recovery for world economy

The IMF has upgraded both its UK and global forecasts compared with what it projected in January.

But the British economy is still predicted to return to its pre-pandemic level of activity only in late 2022.
