Not if we abolish all tariffs we don't .......but that might not help our farmers due to the massive subsidies etc EU farmers get.

But we could subsidise our own farmers once we are free. We shall be saving ourselves a lot of money, after all.

Re: Brexit and the EU

Hi

If we abolish all tariffs we cannot do so just on the Irish Border.

Under WTO Rules, the Most Favoured Nation, we would have to abolish all tariffs on goods from every country.

They would not be obliged to reduce all Tariffs on UK Goods.

We could prevent a hard border in Northern Ireland by having Border Checks when the goods reach mainland UK.

The DUP refuse to accept this.

Mr Varadkar is also playing silly idiots.

Does anyone here actually understand WTO rules?

It's not us that have to, whether the negotiators understand anything about them is what worries me.

Poor quality post......I know you've not many brain cells to spare after all your vitals kick in but come on!

Must try harder!

Good to see you still taking an interest and well done on spotting an error; those Adult Literacy classes are certainly paying off for you.

Even better - a bit of Latin! Very impressed with your progress. Convention has it that you use square brackets and an ellipsis is usually three dots (sometimes four if there is a full stop) but doubtless these finer points will come with time. Keep up the good work.

Which means we couldn't compete with the tariffs the EU places on Agri-products ( up to 22%).

If we unilaterally impose no tariffs on the EU , we also have to do that for every other nation that trades with us but ( as per WTO rules).......without a free trade agreement the EU does NOT have to remove tariffs on our products going in to the EU.

Therefore , I think I'm right in saying tht removing all tariffs is only good if part if a free trade agreement so that our goods being exported are also exempt !

Hi

Yes, spot on.

No Free Trade Agreement means that if we remove all our Tariffs, we must remove them from all.

They have no need to reduce theirs.

It means all our Imports will be Zero Tariff, but all our Exports will be subject to Tariffs and Non Tariff Barriers.

No other WTO Member has ever done that, simply because it is Financial Suicide.

Both the biggest Economies in the World, the USA and China, have never even contemplated that, and for good reason.

They are not idiots, No Dealers are.
