How is it a bargaining chip? Which do you think is presently more important to the EU at present; maintaining trade with the EU, or sending the message that leaving the EU invites a World of pain?
Tarifs will effect the EU more than the UK, with over 10% fall in the a 10% tariff of sales is irrelevant & will cost exporters ZERO. Being that you can't increase the price of a commodity item by 25% most of the tariff & currency loss will have to be paid for by the foreign company selling to the UK.

It's really very easy if you understand how the market works.

The lower priced has been very profitable for exporters to date, it's a win win situation regardless.

Free movement is fairly useless to 90% of the UK population as they only speak English, being many Europeans speak almost fluent English. I moved to CH before free movement, if you had some special skill you could move.
