Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I don't think it will make a difference. There's always been smuggling between the two. Unless they build a wall - which they won't. Remember the old cow trick. They'd cross UK cows over the border - claim EU subsidy - then walk them back and repeat a month later.

Anyway, despite what they say, the word in the inner circle in Brussels is they will agree a trade deal quickly as it's in their interest despite the rhetoric, as of course they are desperate for the UK not to leave the EU.
As a matter of interest can you name one country or group of countries that have expressed interest in negotiating a trade agreement with the UK after Brexit?

So far all I have seen is public statements stating exactly the opposite!

This talk of UK entering a new world of multiple free trade agreements is at best wishful thinking, at worst, leaping into disaster.
