AS I write, we have a market of nearly half a billion people just across the Channel, plus trade deals with 40 other countries.

We are part of a community of 28 in which our vote is as valid as all the others.

We have freedom of movement to all these countries and an influx of new people (which we need), to our labour market.

A rapport of co-operation for scientific, space, medical research, security, etc, that has built up over nearly 50 years.

With what are we replacing all this?
