In a debate on the BBC, Nigel Farage, the Ukip leader, went even further than the official leave campaign and suggested getting rid of tariffs on goods traded with all countries.
This was condemned by the remain campaign, who said it was a “reckless” plan that would “decimate our domestic industries”.
“People would be able to sell in to the UK market for free, but our exporters would face tariffs selling in to Europe,” a spokesman said.
Err, yes. But given that it is the imports which make us rich then that’s the thing we want to do, isn’t it?
Unilateral free trade is, after all, the only logical trade stance to have.
