I wonder how those UK companies sell their products outside the EU now.
Simples! The EU has multiple trade agreements and the logo "Made in EU" has more weight than "Made in Liverpool". Probably doesn't seem to be the case if you're in Liverpool, but this is the way things actually move.
BJ WILL align with the EU, he has no other pragmatic choice and as much as he plays tough and bully he's actually pretty docile now and realizes he hasn't much cards to play. Also, bear in mind that very soon the EU will negotiate with London being treated as an outsider and London is neither the biggest, nor the most important trading partner of EU. Not to mention that for some industries (agriculture, carmaking, fishing, etc) London is a direct competitor so expect less than equal treatment
