Added to the problem is what exactly has the UK to offer that is a "unique selling point"? Most of the super "brands" like, for example, Rolls Royce and Bentley are long gone.

Here is a list of the top ten exports; which of these could not be quickly replaced by any one of a dozen countries?
Firstly, Rolls Royce is NOT long gone!

Then you talk about USP and replacement.

The fact that we export all the items you list shows that somebody wants them and even if we leave the single market, it doesn't mean that they will stop wanting those items from the UK.
