Exiting the EU

A number of people have written to me asking for my opinion on the Brexit discussions which I have detailed below and will update as events change. This is my personal view and is largely based on my experience as a commercial negotiator during a thirty-year business career in car manufacturing, technology, banking and financial services. This does not make me an expert in trade negotiations with Europe but does give me an insight into the business operating models which have built up as a result of the UK being part of the EU trading bloc for more than forty years.
