"Those import tariffs don't stop the Swiss buying foreign meat in CH." This is because local Swiss meat has astronomic prices!

Quick google search;
Rump steak Coop 100g CHF 8.96
Rump Steak Tesco 100g 1.54 (say CHF 1.90)

Even with a 40% tariff British rump steak would still be less than a third of Swiss prices
Switzerland imposes an extremely high tariff, yet is the most successful country in Europe, despite not being a member of the EU. However you think the UK would sink with far lower tariffs........ scratching my head here.
