Brexitwaanzin (Dutch)

There is no such thing as a costless Brexit

Leaving the EU has direct and structural economic costs for the UK, irrespective of how the country leaves the EU. The magnitude of the impact depends on the future trade relationship they will negotiate with the EU, and a transition period could soften the blow. From that perspective it is not reassuring that with six months left before ‘Brexit day’ the UK is still divided over the Brexit objectives.

Brexit aan de hand van een kop thee (Dutch)

Deal or no deal, sommige dingen veranderen sowieso in het handelen met het VK na Brexit. Zo vervallen alle internationale overeenkomsten van de EU voor het VK, tenzij tegenpartijen verlenging verschaffen. En dat kan de Britse uitvoer flink duurder maken.
