The UK buys more from the EU, than they sell to the EU, so actually they have an advantage at the negotiating table as they have less to loose.

There are 2 net contributors to the EU Germany & the UK, the rest are all leaches. Nothing fair about that.
47% of UK exports go to the EU. 16% of EU exports go to the UK. Which economy will be proportionately more damaged?

Plus a fair chunk of those EU exports are food....the UK has no choice but to import food. OK, the US is a partial alternative if you want hormone laden meat.
