Brexit: Harder Than Promised?

It is not frictionless trade and it is nothing like what it was declared by the government to be. Trade with the EU is free of tariffs providing all manner of conditions are met, especially rules of origin, forms are completed, certificates are in place. Delays are significant. Some trade with Northern Ireland has ground to a halt. Were it not for Covid, the government would have a lot of questions to answer.

In the end as the dust of Covid and Brexit settles, there will be one question only. Are we, or are we likely soon to become, better off? If that cannot be positively and unambiguously answered, another question will arise. Why did we do it? That will be when the game changes.
