My central expectation, repeated in numerous blog posts and comments since the referendum, is that we will see a hard Brexit...
My point has always been that WTO tariffs have to be negotiated, and there simply isn't any automatic process by which some default set of tariffs will kick in once the UK leaves the EU.
I´m not quite sure if I understand you correctly. Or maybe I don´t know all the facts?
But it was my impression that Britain - in a hard Brexit scenario - will simply become a third party country. And in such a scenario the EU will be forced to implement third party country duties.
Otherwise the EU would violate the WTO non-discrimination rules.
Third party country duties here would be the tariffs as reported to the WTO?
