This is going to push up the balance of payment defecit astronomically

Steve[/QUOTE]

Funny you never hear about the balance of payments now., At one time it was never off the news.

I understand it's worse now than when we used to worry about it

Re: BREXIT - What now ?

The balance of payments deficit has doubled in ten years from just under 50 billion to over a hundred billion , last quarter £23.2 billion.

Re: BREXIT - What now ?

Leaving the EU would allow us to boost our payments and cut our deficit, says John Redwood

Leaving the EU will immediately improve our balance of payments. According to the government’s own Pink book, last year £12bn of our balance of payments deficit was payments the state and the private sector had to make to EU institutions. We could cease paying our contributions on exit, giving our payments a big boost. We will also have the £10bn of net contributions the state has been making to the EU available to spend, so we can end public sector austerity and spend that money on our priorities here at home.

Under EU rules the UK is entitled to reclaim the costs of health treatment for nationals of other EU countries using the NHS, just as the UK state has to pay for any UK patient treated in the rest of the EU. This has resulted in the UK running a huge deficit on health account, as the UK has not proved good at reclaiming and the rest of the EU has not been good at paying.

As we take control of our borders and put in a fair system of migration control worldwide with fewer people coming, so we will reduce the strains on our health service and could eliminate some of this large deficit. Since 2007-8 the UK has paid out £6.2bn to the rest of the EU for health and received only £405m back. That’s particularly surprising if you think about how many more people can qualify from the rest of the EU for NHS treatment than there are British people who can go the other way.

The UK runs a large deficit with the rest of the EU on trade in goods and services, whilst running a surplus with the rest of the world. Part of the reason for the large EU deficit is the variable application of the costly and complex rules, with the UK being much firmer in implementing procurement, expensive energy, state aids and competition policies than the rest of the EU in a way which means we end up buying much more than we sell them.

Free of EU membership we could take a more normal approach to purchasing and to helping our businesses, without in any way offering subsidised buying to uncompetitive UK businesses. EU-inspired closures of fossil fuel power stations are making us import more electricity. The UK steel industry is under threat of closure at a time when the much larger German industry is faring better, thanks in part to cheaper energy.

On the export side, free of the EU the UK could move rapidly to having free trade agreements with the two largest economies in the world, the USA and China, and with Brazil and India, two important emerging economies. During our 43 years in the EU, the organisation has been unable or unwilling to negotiate and sign trade agreements with these important partners despite the UK’s wish for the EU to do so.

All the time the UK stays in the EU it has to let the EU handle all its trade negotiations. We lose our voice and vote at the World Trade Organisation and at leading World Standards conferences, as the EU takes our place. The UK will be an important free trade voice once out of the EU and will be able to make agreements which improve our exports.

Re: BREXIT - What now ?

Transport secretary Chris Grayling saying in September last year: “Flights will carry on. Does anybody seriously think the Spanish government, which would see hotel bookings collapse in 2019, is going to intervene to stop planes flying? Of course, they’re not.”

If anything that just proves that what the UK does not want is an idiot like Junker

Re: BREXIT - What now ?

I'm surprised John Redwood didn't include import duties in his list.
The EU commission determines what import duty all members must charge the importer on goods entering the EU. Each year the 27 EU members collect 25bn EUR in import duties and are allowed to deduct 20% to cover collection costs before handing over 20bn EUR to the EU commission.

As an EU member the UK collects £3.4 billion import duties each year from the importers. After deducting 20% collection costs we hand over £2.7bn to the EU.

The effect of those duties is to increase costs to the UK consumer.
The beneficiary is the EU commission budget.

His comment was ill thought out, especially aimed at March, the start of the holiday season.
I'm sure previous & future comments from all sides will hit the bin. German industry can/could well blame the UK for their job loses............but most of the EU tends to blame Germany for just about everything else

British ‘lethality’? Gavin Williamson’s brain has gone absent without leave

The defence secretary’s big talk about boosting the UK’s ‘global presence’ and ‘hard power’ proves he’s lost touch with reality…

If history teaches us anything, it is that vanity defence procurements merely incite ministers to reckless interventions, afterwards bitterly regretted. Williamson’s speech reads like the pompous rantings of a 1950s Tory on the make. It cannot conceivably have been cleared with colleagues, let alone the Treasury. It is best forgotten.
