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.
I think it would be a bit of a shock to the UK.

Imagine all the expat moans we see here about stuff being seasonal or ridiculously priced, or not being able to get Branston Pickle (or Worcester Sauce, which is now not made in the UK ) etc etc. - times 50 million.

But it would be positive environmentally and from a sustainability viewpoint.
