"'Perfectly manageable' for UK to trade with EU under WTO rules"

I'm surprised still to see these fantasies being indulged of slipping seamlessly out of the EU into the welcoming arms of "WTO trading rules".

You have only to look at the example of increasing protectionism with trading partners applying massive and arbitrary duties on imports from each other, with pretexts such as "national security" or "unfair trade practices" and with the transparent purpose of supporting the home industries and sabotaging competitors, to see how hard it is going to be out there:
