2025. Like eight years from now.

Not a lot of people know this,but.

By 2025, every member country has to be in the euro.

Good time to leave, eh?

the bottom will fall right out of it when there's no brexit deal and the deals we have through the EU are gone.

On the bright side Mark Cavendish broke his shoulder.

On the A46 Lincoln bypass this morning I passed three car transporters. One full of Audis, one full of Mercedes, and one full of Beamers. They all come into immingham docks. Do you really believe that will all stop in 2019?

No, because the British public will buy European cars whatever - they'll just pay more - as much as the Nissan Leaf is a mean motor, I can't see it replacing Mercedes or Audi :wink:

Mercedes and Audi will have hybrid versions of all their newer models on the market within 5 years and the business community will always buy them because they have the most toys

We do have import tariffs. The problem, if that is what you want to call it, is that they are set by the EU. I used to import cars and parts from the USA. There was an import duty of 10% added to every item and then VAT on the total price including the duty.
