Brexit means increased red tape and costs for British businesses trading across the continent. So long as the UK is unwilling to erase its red lines altogether, it is difficult to foresee a landing zone that doesn’t leave the country significantly poorer than it would have been otherwise. Yet if a customs union could be negotiated and agreed following the UK’s departure in March 2019, and it was subsequently stuffed to the rafters with additional regulatory measures, it might offset some of the damage (although it is difficult to see how border friction could ever be obviated entirely under such an approach).
