Ed Davey emphasized that there would be a huge amount of trade barriers. There will be more red tape - and 80% of the British economy - the service sector - is not even covered. "It's been cut adrift". No access to an important security database. Ed continued "Worse on Jobs. Worse on Safety. And that is insupportable".
