Pub boss is right to spell out ben­e­fits of leav­ing EU

Daily Express - - LETTERS -

IN his ex­cel­lent piece (“The busi­ness case for Brexit rings out loud and clear”, Novem­ber 14), Ross Clark quotes JD Wether­spoon boss Tim Martin’s claims that food would be cheaper un­der World Trade Or­ga­ni­za­tion rules.

I ques­tioned if this could be true but soon re­alised it was, as from my break­fast milk, eggs, toast, por­ridge, melon and cof­fee, to my Sun­day roast, home-grown fruit and veg and oc­ca­sional glass of wine, noth­ing comes from the EU, so all would be the same or cheaper with­out the EU tar­iffs.

And the sav­ings didn’t end there, as my white goods and TV are South Korean, my mo­bile phone and iPad are from the US, my three-piece suite was made in China and my car is Ja­panese.

The po­ten­tial sav­ing on EU tar­iffs for con­sumers here in the UK are enor­mous. Roy Daniels, Lu­ton, Beds
