Liam Fox has argued that negotiating a trade deal with the EU should be easy, saying:
‘If you think about it, the free trade agreement that we will have to come to with the European Union should be one of the easiest in human history’.
‘We are already beginning with zero tariffs, and we are already beginning at the point of maximal regulatory equivalence as it is called, in other words, our rules and our laws are exactly the same’.
‘The only reason that we wouldn’t come to a free and open agreement is because politics gets in the way of economics’.
Mr. Fox also said that Britain ‘can of course survive with no deal, and we have to go into a negotiation with those on the other side knowing that that’s what we think’.
