    Government says we WILL leave the European Customs Union.

    Brexit: Government insists UK will leave customs union

    The government has restated its commitment to leaving the EU's custom union - ahead of a symbolic vote on the issue this week.

    Last Wednesday, the government suffered defeat on the EU Withdrawal Bill in the House of Lords on the issue of staying in a UK-EU customs union after Brexit.

    And MPs will get their own chance to debate the issue on Thursday.

    Listening to Mrs May one would think that we are going to leave the European Customs Union, and then set up a new one from outside of Europe.

    Read the full article on this from The BBC HERE




    I think that Theresa May is living in cloud-cuckoo land if she thinks that it will be easy to form up another Customs Union from OUTSIDE the EU.

    Once out it will be very difficult to get back in again.

    What she is looking for here is to have her cake and eat it too. This has never been an easy thing to do.

    Once she takes us out of Europe she will find it might be easier to trade with the rest of the world, but a lot more difficult to trade with Europe again.

    Yes, while in the EU we came under a lot of rules that restricted our need to trade with the rest of the world.

    Once out, we may find it easier to trade world-wide, but we will almost certainly be punished when trying to trade with Europe again.

    I agree with the "having her cake and eating it too" indictment Zathrus.

    She will not be able to do this no matter how hard she tries.

    Once out of the EU, after Brexit is done, she may be able to renegotiate some kind of trading deal with the EU.

    We will not know if this will be allowed or not until the dust has settled.

    This could take years.

    Yes it is almost certain that the settling of business connections with the EU - once out of the EU - is going to be very hard and is going to take a VERY long time.
