Trade figures since Brexit !!
The media and particularly the BBC have been vociferous in
making the figures for two months since brexit allegedly occured
sound like a calamity!! When in fact , although our exports to EU
fell by £5B , our imports from them also fell, by £8B !!
This means that we are in fact £3B better off.!!
This is exactly what should be happening and we should be happy
about this ??
The UK businesses that are losing out by exporting to EU will now
be encouraged to seek markets elsewhere and hopefully importers
of EU goods will now start to import more from the wider world ??
Obviously Rome is not built in a day, but this trend should be
encouraged imo ??
