WHY on earth are Remainers still insisting the EU have the upper hand in the Brexit negotiations, when the opposite is true?

If the British team opted for WTO trading rules, the reciprocal WTO tariffs would be devastating for car manufacturers in Germany, France and Spain.

French vintners and cheese companies would also be hard hit.

Moreover, a recent high-level EU meeting concluded that the European beef market would likely collapse if this British option were to occur.

Most financial experts agree that Britain would gain by some £7bn in exchange tariffs, so there is little doubt that Barnier and Juncker would soon alter their stance and offer us a free trade deal.
