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.
