CALL TO TRADE ON WTO TERMS
Tim Martin is in favour of Britain crashing out of the EU without a deal and trading to World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules.
Critics of Brexit say there’s no way of telling what tariff barriers other countries will put up and this could make life harder for British exporters.
“There are a lot of things for a start, we don’t produce in this country, where there are tariffs,” the chairman of Wetherspoon said.
He claims that the UK could eliminate a lot of tariff barriers and that “it’s only a gain for UK consumers and businesses”.
Wetherspoon itself has recently pivoted away from European brands such as Jagermeister.
