Reports of Michelle Barnier’s comments about the extraction of the UK from the Customs Union, only state what Mr Barnier said; “Trade Barriers will be unavoidable outside the Customs Union”. There has been no ANALYSIS of this, implying that this will adversely affect only the UK. In reality, it will also adversely affect the richer countries in Europe – France, Germany, Spain etc. who export significant amounts to the UK. The BBC are very keen to analyze to death, any statements supporting BREXIT, putting a Pro-remain counter. Not so when the situation is reversed.
