Denying Britain Free Trade Will Only Hurt Europeans

From Julien Backhaus – Wealth Protection Up-To-Date (Germany) –

Are you wondering what is really going on in the UK? The Brexit is decided thing, would not have to slowly slow down what? And above all, in which direction does the movement go? One might get the impression that politics is breaking out.


The government seems unorganized, the ministries are disputing, the impulses that go from there are not unanimous. This has probably been noticed in the Cabinet.

The BBC has reported an internal memo of the Cabinet, which shows that the British government is at odds. In ministerial circles there is no common strategy for the exit of Great Britain from the EU. The ministries concerned each had their own designs for their specialist areas, but an overall concept was lacking. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Commerce are strategically on the side of David Davis, the minister responsible for the Brexit. Treasury Chancellor Hammond and Economic Secretary Clark acted against it.

What’s going on there? Is not the exit from the EU the main project of the English government, especially with regard to the economy of one’s own country? Should not preparations have already been made and bureaucratic points have been set? It would require 30,000 additional state officials to implement the project, the paper says. In the coming six months, they wanted to look for these people.


A scandal: Internal disputes and a lack of organization hinder the preparation for the largest economic project, which is not only in the UK and the EU, but possibly in the whole world!

Of course, the government denies – starting in March next year, it says, it starts. But how? Political disputes are currently blocking. This is fatal for the economic sector. How is it that internal quarrels among ministers can torpedo such an undertaking?


There are important things to decide, especially how future trade between England and the EU should look.

In European political circles, the attitude is often found that, after the departure of Great Britain, only an economic foreclosure with regard to the EU is possible. One cites “rights and duties”, and argues that whoever does not want to stick to the rules can not profit from the common economic space. In other words, the British want to be denied access to the internal market. This is not only defiant, but also too briefly thought.

Such efforts damage both parties in the medium term, and experience teaches us that foreclosure is by no means an advantage. Regulations, duties and tariffs – these are the elements that are used to slow the economic prosperity of economies, no matter how and for whom they are to be applied.

Trade barriers both sides in the medium term. In the future, if the EU unilaterally levies tariffs on goods from the UK, it damages not only the British economy, but primarily itself. Why should an EU citizen get access to British products only when the producer first gets through To free the fee of fees in order to be able to operate on the European market? This is, I think, absurd. Only because the UK does not want to accept the numerous restrictions in the trade sector by the EU?

What could the UK do to achieve a positive economic and trade development?
