There are some other figures that may surprise Remainers too, such as the fact exports now total £580bn and the UK is now selling £12.7bn more services abroad than it’s buying.
In the last year alone the UK has exported £256bn worth of services.
This is proof, if proof were needed, that the world isn’t going to cave in with Brexit and in fact there are huge global opportunities out there. Britain is making serious money based on its stellar international reputation and now it finally has the chance to make the most of that by trading extensively with countries outside the EU.
