Re: Short sighted idiocy...
>Before we had this EU monstrosity (personal opinion) the individual countries were quite capable of setting up trade agreements and such amongst themselves
Mostly at the point of a bayonet. Not allowed to do that, anymore.
It remains a fact that we know what the rules are, within the EU. We don't have a fucking clue what the rules might be, outside the EU. So any claim that 'of course we'll be able to negotiate a better deal' is a flat-out lie.
