EU Order of the OTT: Super Soub’s Souped Up Spin

The level of outlandish hyperbole flying around during the referendum campaign has inspired Guido to institute a new EU subdivision of the Order of the OTT. The first recipient is Anna ‘super’ Soubry for her brilliantly bonkers claim that trade with the EU will reduce to “absolutely zero” post-Brexit:

Jonathan Dimbleby: “Can you both agree on a matter of fact, what proportion of this market is in Europe and what proportion is outside?”

Anna Soubry: “44% of our exports which is £290 billion goes into the EU.”

Kate Hoey: “That has gone down by 10% in the last 8 years.”

Anna Soubry: “But Kate it will go down to almost absolutely zero if we come out of the EU.”

According to Soubs there will be a virtual trade embargo with the EU following Brexit, despite the fact that the UK’s trade deficit with the EU has just hit an all time high. Righto.
