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

To be kind of fair to Loz, Brexiteers have been rattling on about Article 24 GATT for the umpteenth time this week. It appears that you can't put scurrilous 'facts' down.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-b...-idUSKCN1PH24V

One of the people at the forefront of banging on about the (mis)perceived benefits of Article 24, is Richard Tice. I'm half expecting Tice to be named as Farage's mysterious benefactor who paid for his private flight from London to Strasbourg this week. Quelle surprise!

And before any Brexiteers start spouting that other countries trade solely on W.T.O. rules, that's a lie! It's also not true that Mauritania are the only coulntry to trade on W.T.O. rules, since they rejoined ECOWAS in 2017. So...if the UK crash out of the UK without a deal, they will be the only country in the entire World to trade purely on W.T.O. rules. Deep joy!
