2. Finding new export markets to make up for ones the UK will lose when we leave the EU will be easy-peasy!
‘One of the reasons why Britain has not been as successful as we might have been at selling pigs’ ears to China is that EU rules dictate that pigs, like all livestock, have ear tags’.
(No, it’s not a spoof report from the Daily Mash. Michael Gove actually said this during a bizarre speech to the Conservative Party Conference). (Andy Hamilton)
