In recent weeks where internal forecasts in leaving the EU saw the UK end up poorer in all predicated scenarios, which saw ministers dismiss their own departments work, backbenchers make unsustainable attacks on the civil service and this is notwithstanding the general shambles of the Brexit process on the UK government's part. Downing Street has confirmed we're leaving the customs union. I guess this another confirmation we're facing a hard Brexit and the need to establish a shit load of trade deals in a short period of time. This is a pretty impressive level of economic shooting yourself in the foot.

This must hurt the british export business hard, since toll was one of the biggest thing that got removed thanks to the EU.

Leaving single market
Leaving Customs union
Commitment to no hard border between Ireland and Northen Ireland.

:unsure:

Something has to give or it'll be some bs spin like not the custom union, but a custom arrangement (custom union in all but name).
