The poorer parts of the country such as the North and the Midlands are already struggling. (Have you been lately?) How will they handle the «certain level of disruption» while waiting for new-leased prosperity?
BREXITEERS don’t like to have to explain themselves, they prefer just to say they don’t think it can possibly be as bad as what people are saying and leave it at that.

I can’t see any reason for countries to be in any hurry to sign trade deals with the U.K. after BREXIT. According to the Boris plan the U.K. will not impose tariffs on imports for at least 12 months. That is ideal for the EU, USA etc. no tariffs on their exports to the U.K. while all imports from the U.K. would be subject to tariffs... The best strategy would be to do nothing and force Boris to keep extending the zero tariffs period. Of course it would wipe out British industry, even their own economies expert acknowledge this, but at least they’ll have their no deal BREXIT.
