    Mark, an acutely accurate assessment of the illness that is aflicting the EU. In July 2016 I was in Denmark and many people seeing the UK number plate on my vehicle spoke to me of their desire for Northern Free Trade Area.

    We hear much rhetoric from the Commission about ‘more Europe’ and I am happy for them to pursue that path as it will only hasten the ventual demise of the EU.

    One suspects that negative views in net contributor countries on the poor economic value offered by the EU’s zeal for political integration will start to harden when UK consumers start to benefit from lower prices on non-EU food, clothing and footwear. With that, participants in the employment market will be able to offer their labour more competitively, and help attract further FDI from outside the EU. Any new trade blocs will look more like ASEAN wherein countries pledge non-interference, but focus on convergence for trade and investment purposes, and not on politically sensitive aspects such as free movement of labour, unification of foreign and defence policies, or a single currency.
