    The rest of the world as 3rd country suppliers to the EU don't seem to have any problem with these documents.

    Hang on, gigz mentions being self sufficient (in terms of food) and you claim we've not been self sufficient since c1400.
    Back that up or get off this forum now for posting ridiculous nonsense. A mental child wouldn't post nonsense like that, FFS even Greta Thundberg would say "hang on, that's a bit far fetched" and she can spot co2 molecules rom half a mile away.

    Nor did we in the 70's, simple document, fill out a few lines, sign, and that was pre computers. Don't believe them, it aint going to happen.

    Times have moved on since then boyo.

    1970's lol.

    Self sufficiency - double lol.

    Let's look at self sufficiency - after the great Brexit jobs cull, UK residents will have food price hikes to look forward to when wages are likely to either stagnate or recede. One bad summer and prices will increase. Two consecutive bad summers and prices will soar.

    I would give the UK a total of three years at best, of pre-1970's economy and self sufficiency nonsense, before every traitorous, treasonous Brexiteer politician is swinging from a lamppost whilst the rest of Parliament are begging to be readmitted to be back in the EU.

    Name one country (third country status) that trades with the EU as we do at present with anywhere near the percentage import/export numbers similar to the UK.

    Well they wouldn't would they.

    That's because the UK has 40 years worth of tying its regulations to the EU.

    That is thousands of aligned regulations.
    Thousands of companies exporting to Europe.

    Trade of goods and services would no longer be frictionless and tariff-free between the U.K. and the 27 remaining countries of the EU. Instead, it would be subject to the WTO-negotiated tariffs -- which act like a tax on goods -- that the EU places on third parties. The bloc accounts for 48% of U.K. goods exports, and the shift could bring costs, paperwork and controls that haven’t existed for decades. Tariffs would differ for various products, but the EU’s average tariff rate is 3%. Here are some examples:



    • Food: The EU’s average most-favored nation tariff rates are 11.1% for agricultural goods, 15.7% for animal products and 35.4% for dairy.
    • Finance: U.K.-based financial companies would lose EU “passporting” rights that allow them to market products and services in any EU country without having to set up a branch there.
    • Automobiles: British carmakers would face a 10% tariff on all car exports to the EU. Those levies could exceed 5.7 billion euros ($6.4 billion) per year and increase the average price of a British car sold in the EU by 3,000 euros per car, according to the British Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

    I am not saying a no deal Brexit cant be done. But it cannot be achieved without huge disruption.

    So a 'no deal' would simply mean straight back to Brussels to secure a deal.

    Lets be honest, your post is silly.

    What you have done is focussed on the trivial part of Nosealls post, to discredit the most important part.

    Of course the UK cant be self sufficient.
    It hasnt been for a very long time......it really doesnt matter when.

    Fillyboy holds onto the fantasy the EU will blink and give the UK a free trade deal, no strings attached.

    Oh and it will do so while it has no president.

    He hasnt thought of the following:

    The UK cant survive long without a frictionless border with the EU.
    The UK has already said it would allow goods to cone in from the EU with no checks. The EU doesnt have to reciprocate, it cant.


    So following a no deal exit, the EU know the UK will be knocking on the door pleading for a any sort of deal.

    Disagree I think the EU will blink but in a last minute attempt to 'assist the UK from certain doom' you wait. And no it wont be the golden ticket before you start gushing
