Please note that trading on WTO terms for the U.K. (or rather GB) with the EU would be *worse* than the terms on which Afghanistan, Somalia etc. trade with the EU. These countries benefit from tariff-free exports of Everything But Arms to the EU. The U.K. wouldn’t.

Thanks for the links Ann. I've just finished reading the Jane Thomas article and how it'll really resonate with most of us in the ''North.''

 

The Whitehall Dictat:- 

'There is a strong sense that we in the North are being played.

Played in the interests of those who really haven’t got a clue where Barnsley is, and have no intention to visit. Played by those whose lives are so different from ours that we may as well come from a different planet. Played in the pretence of caring about devolution – by giving us city mayors, but not the powers nor the responsibilities that should come with it.''..
