The UK has opened up the market for goods to the EU, but the EU has not fully opened up the services market (which the UK relies on) - in fact, Germany has gone on record recently as saying that they will NEVER fully open up the EU services market. So there are still internal protectionist policies which work against the UK.
Well be that as it may, the fact remains that when it comes to trade the UK has not performed as well as the rest and now the argument is that outside the EU they will do better... who is that going to work?
