Trade barriers 'unavoidable' outside customs union, says EU's Barnier
The UK will face "unavoidable" barriers to trade if it leaves the customs union and single market, the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has said.
Brexit Secretary David Davis response seems to me to be from Cloud La-La Land:
... the UK's position was "perfectly clear".
The UK, he argued, wanted a free trade deal with the EU but also the freedom to strike deals with other countries, where trade opportunities were growing.
Another step on the the road to a hard exit?
