Wetherspoon boss Tim Martin has urged a more sensible approach on Brexit whilst pointing out the huge advantages of full independence.
The Brexit legend has replaced French champagne for UK sparkling wine and German wheat beer has been switched to alternatives from the UK and America.
Martin said: “99% of the benefits of leaving the EU, including the avoidance of vast financial contributions, the elimination of tariffs and the reacquisition of fishing rights, need no agreement from any third party.
“The Prime Minister can avoid most current problems by prioritising these areas.
“We are frequently asked about the effect of Brexit on the company and the economy. The main advantage of Brexit is that the EU is a protectionist system that imposes high tariffs on non-EU imports such as wine, rice, coffee, oranges, children’s shoes and clothes, and over 12,000 other products.
“Leaving the EU allows the UK to adopt the approach of countries like Singapore, Hong Kong, Switzerland and Australia by dismantling these tariff walls, which improves general living standards.”
If only someone with his conviction and vision was leading the Brexit charge.
