Intriguing article.

"Consider: Britain has not achieved a goods trade surplus, which is where we export more goods than we import, in any single month since comparable records began more than two decades ago. Yet in December that astonishing leap in gold exports meant that the headline figures published this week showed Britain achieving its first goods trade surplus in modern times.

That this was almost entirely down to a mysterious movement of gold bars was seemingly lost on Liz Truss, the international trade secretary, who promptly issued a press release hailing a “record-breaking year for UK exports”."

Well it took a couple of weeks longer than I suspected, and it was the Dutch rather than the French, but welcome to the new world of not in a common market and not in a freedom of movement zone the UK voted for ..... and it’s just beginning.

Anyone with common-sense knew it was a storm in a teacup from the off... There will be plenty more 💤

In real and significant news the pound is at its highest level against the Euro since the end of June 2016 📈

Colin the brexiteer didn't think it was a storm in a teacup, he thought it was brexit....which is the great irony 

I look forward to tweets from people like Colin after the transition period ends, and the potential to have to queue up to get out of the country increases

People will find the following facts regarding trade from yesterday much more intriguing than a completely useless Times article from Thursday March 23 2017 😎👇

 

EXCLUSIVE - Boris gets reluctant Valentine's present from the EU

EU finally shows how badly it needs UK’s business, revealing 2019 figures

valentine_boris.jpg

Latest EU trade figures for 2019 show the UK separately for the first time

Another exclusive, shocking report from the Brexit Facts4EU.Org team

Yesterday the EU released its latest trade figures (for 2019) showing the UK as a non-EU country for the first time. For the past four years Brexit Facts4EU.Org has been painstakingly extracting UK data from the EU’s global comparisons in order to show information like this.

Now we have the EU’s own admissions on trade for the very first time

These new EU trade figures give a huge Brexit boost to Boris’s tough trade stance

The new figures were released yesterday by the EU’s official statistics agency, Eurostat. As usual with anything which might be helpful to the Brexit cause, they came out on a Friday afternoon in Brussels and have gone unreported by the BBC 🤥

Brexit Facts4EU.Org Summary

The EU’s reluctant Valentine’s gift to Boris

EU27 goods trade figures for 2019 show UK as massive customer, second only to USA

  • Total EU27 goods exports to UK : €319bn
  • This is 15% of global EU27 goods exports in 2019
  • It’s 61% more than the EU27 sold to China
  • It’s 42% of the EU27’s entire sales to all non-EU European countries

eu_trade_2019_1.jpg

EU27 trade surpluses – the value of EU27 exports minus imports

  • The EU27 earned a €125 billion trade surplus from the UK in 2019
  • That’s a staggering 62% of the EU27’s total global trade surplus in goods last year
  • The EU27 made more from the UK than from the next five countries COMBINED
  • It’s 7 TIMES MORE than the EU did with Canada, whose trade deal the EU talks about constantly

Observations

We know from the thousands of emails we have received over the past few years that many readers have been exasperated at the failure of organisations like the BBC – and indeed many Leave organisations – to present the simple facts about the EU27’s trade with the UK.

For far too long the public has been left with the impression that the UK is ‘small beer’ for the EU, when it comes to doing business.

Over the past four years we have published on this subject again and again, using simple facts to illustrate the economic power of the United Kingdom. Today, Saturday 15 February 2020, we can finally bring readers the definitive proof of what we have reported all along.

Here, at long last, are the EU’s own figures for last year (2019) which show the UK as a ‘third country’. No longer can Remainers (or Rejoiners) accuse us of manipulating data which we extracted from thousands of officiaL EU spreadsheets and databases.

The above data comes direct from the horse’s mouth, showing the UK as a separate country at long last. Clearly the UK was still a full member of the EU last year, but the EU have now separated out the UK from the EU27 when presenting the data.

A great Valentine’s present from the EU to Boris

Prime Minister, if you’re reading this, you are certainly entitled to chortle over your cornflakes this morning. Then please make our report required reading for all the Remainer civil servants who will continue to be involved in trade negotiations with the EU this year.

Brexit was never about trade, it was about sovereignty, democracy, independence and freedom. Trade and economic benefits were always going to be an added bonus.

We have always argued that the fanatical ideologues in the EU would never do a sensible deal with the UK and we haven’t changed our position over the past four years. Still, that doesn’t stop our information above being spread far and wide – thoughout the UK, the EU, and globally.

“ Brexit was never about trade, it was about sovereignty, democracy, independence and freedom. Trade and economic benefits were always going to be an added bonus. “

 

I see. So your team are fine with destroying the economy that underpins every aspect of British life so the Torygraph can run BS stories of how much better off we all are with blue passports. 

That’s not a question, it’s just an observation.

More funnies from the fannies.

"We have always argued that the fanatical ideologues in the EU would never do a sensible deal with the UK and we haven’t changed our position over the past four years."

The EU, every remain supporter on this and the other thread and every commentator worth his salt has been saying this for the last four years. The EU was never going to give a country that leaves as good a deal as membership would give. It's not ideology, it's not fanatiscism, it's pure common sense and as clear as day. If we left and it looked as good on the outside as inside then the EU would collapse. There was never a "cake and eat it" deal.

So no quotes on Honda saying they left due to Brexit !

You must have a serious memory problem, among your others. I provided you just a very few days ago with the official Honda statement which admitted Brexit was one of the factors, and even added a helpful translation of the businessspeak language to make it plain just what they were saying about how Brexit, any kind of Brexit and not just the no-deal we seem to be heading for, would scr*w their business model. Hence the closure decision. But by all means continue to have convenient amnesia about this. I will not bother to keep putting you right.

I have no idea what you think you are quoting. For the very last time what I have quoted, and hardly for the first time, was an official Honda statement that admitted Brexit was a factor in the closure decision.

Oh come on, Herman! We have had enough of experts. And what would the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, which is probably some EU-funded fake-news bot, know about it anyway?
