    ANGELA Merkel will have to agree to a free trade deal with an independent United Kingdom because 750,000 jobs rely on cross-Channel exports, a senior economics analyst has warned today.

    Marc Biese urged German politicians to “think” about the vast economic benefits of close ties with Britain as the cavernous trade deficit between the two countries was laid bare.


    He further highlighted the growing split between Berlin and Paris over how to deal with post-Brexit Britain, accusing the “hardline” French government of trying to scupper talks in its own interests - something which would deeply damage the German economy.


    Germany exports to the UK are more than double the value of those heading in the other direction, with British customers acting as a lifeline for “crucial” industries including car manufacturing on which its economies relies.

    i am sure the people who voted Leave have allowed for this; a period of short term Schmertz followed by a Glorious Future for the English Volk marching arm in arm with their Teutonic Brothers.

    As usual, it's worth noting that anything in the Express needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, if this was true then it would be massive, so then why is no-one else reporting it, not even other Eurosceptic and pro-Brexit sources? The Express is not known for printing facts remember, it's about as trustworthy as the bloke down the pub.

    The axe for Britain far outweighs that of other EU member states and I am sure a substantial proportion of the pro-European idealist establishment would be willing to carry the costs just to prove a point. This is until they themselves are under pressure. You may be having a normalcy bias in thinking they would not do that because it is 'irrational' to you, but Tusk, Steinmeier and others already declared that a condition for British access to the EU market will be respecting the 4 freedoms of the EU. This de facto means reducing yourself to the status of EEA; a solution already on Morgan Stanley's reco.

    Exactly. They are just trying to bully us by saying there can be no single market access without freedom of movement. We need a strong PM to lead the negotiations and not be bullied by them. After this mornings events, that man has to be Michael Gove.

    Don't forget all Germany loses because of sanctions against Russia which originate from our masters in Washington.

    France is seeking to end sanctions more than anyone, just look at all the mass protests they've had in the last few years. Not all related, but some are especially the farmers who can't export their goods to Russia.

    If the Eurocucks don't give us a free trade deal we should put a call through to Putin.

    Now how about mentioning how many UK jobs are at risk if a free trade deal is not secured.

    The leave party keeps spinning the narrative to make it seem like europe is more disadvantaged than us if we completely cut ties with them. It's actually quite funny tbh.

    We have a greater incentive to secure the deal than they do yet leave keeps trying to convince people of the opposite.

    This is ironically a single economist. However, the fact is that so many more economists are arguing in favour of UK reverting the xenophobic 51%'s decision that it's not even worth individually making articles about them. Clear reasons why the UK is considered to be a laughing stock to the rest of the world right now are all over the internet.
