UKIP’s version of trade outside the EU would leave Britain diminished and worse off. Responding to UKIP’s report “The Truth About Trade Beyond the EU”, Business for New Europe’s campaign director, Lucy Thomas, said:
“UKIP need to be honest about what Out would really look like. They may aspire to an isolated and lonely Britain but as part of the world’s largest market we can achieve so much more. We get to trade with Europe and the rest of the world, with access to free trade deals with over 50 countries.
“Any version of Out would leave us on our own in the corner, still having to accept the rules with no say over what they are. For a party claiming to be all about power and democracy, it’s odd to argue for less influence and a far worse deal.”
