Horrible isolationist flag-wankers have made the UK poorer.

As predicted.

I would have expected trade with the EU to reduce after Brexit.

That report doesn't mention how much trade has increased with non-EU states though. That's without considering the effects of COVID.

I'm not a fan of Brexit by any means but this is just another level of misreporting.

I wouldn’t expect a report about EU trade to focus on non-EU trade..!

Don't be a CD.

Obvouly if Britiain was leaving the EU trade with non -EU Countries would rise in proportion to the fall in EU trade, so it wouldn't make the UK "Poorer". That's junk reporting.

It's caused a huge amount of disruption not least to UK bands touring in the EU, but that's another story. BTW did you know they introduced tachograph monitoring of all 2.4+ ton vans carrying freight across national borders in the EU. Too many 3.5t vans carrying 6 tons of goods for 12 hours and more.

Even if I tried to be a CD, I couldn’t sink to that level.

But did non-EU exports fill the vacuum left by the act of deliberate national self-harm that the f*ckwit Billy Britain flag wanking xenophobes inflict upon us?

Owing to the global pandemic is would be very difficult to make a meaningful comparison.

In the post-covid resurgence, imports from the EU rose by 4.2% in Mach 2022. imports from non-EU countries fell by 0.7%. Given that the lag time for sea freight from Asia is between 8 - 10 weeks, manufactured products from Asia would still be subject to earlier levels of recovering output. Shipping capacity may have even effected the delivery of freight further.

Exports to the EU increased 8.1% in April compared to March an increase over total exports at 7.4% Exports to the EU were at an all time record high.

Non-EU exports increased by 6.5%

There is a further complication in comparing figures because HMRC changed their calculating process in January, including about £0.5 billion of low value imports that were previously estimated.

So much more to do with Covid last year perhaps.
