Brexit added almost £6bn to UK food bills in the two years to the end of 2021, affecting poorest households the most, research has found.
Nikhil Datta, assistant professor of economics at Warwick University and a co-author of the study, said: “The policy implications are stark: non-tariff barriers are an important impediment to trade that should be a first-order concern, at least on a par with tariffs, for policymakers interested in low consumer prices.”
Oh. So this isn’t, in fact, really Brexit at all. It’s the insane insistence on having border checks. Simply declare that anything legal in the EU is also legal in the UK an be done with the lot of it.
You know, free trade?
