Lets get this right 16% of the total of 28 Countries is huge v 47% of 1 country.
The EU will be far worse effected amazed you can't see that.
The problem with percentages is they don't tell the whole truth. In pure money terms, Germany has a trade surplus with the UK of 51 bn, second only to the US at 54 bn and the whole of the EU has a surplus with the UK of 92bn. It's so heavily in their favour that there's no way they will jeopardise that and truth is they can't afford to. They'll already have to find an additional 12bn nett that the UK pays in so they'll be desperate for a deal.
