Consumers v Producers in the New Brexit Economy
Britain should prepare to leave the Single Market to enforce Brexit, says Patrick Minford in Politeia’s next publication, Trading Places: Consumers v Producers in the New Brexit Economy. The goal should be access tothe Single Market under WTO rules in the same way as other successful economies – e.g. the US, Canada and Australia access it. Exiting the Single Market would bring huge savings by lifting the burdens of EU tariffs and regulations and ending subsidies to unskilled European migrant labour.
Leaving the EU - Legal and Trade Priorities for the New Britain
In How to Leave the EU - Legal and Trade Priorities for the New Britain, Martin Howe QC, proposes when and how Article 50 should be invoked to give the EU notice of departure.
The author, a distinguished EU lawyer, explains that the focus should be on the UK’s trade deals globally, with third countries outside the EU. The aim should be to take over free trade deals with such countries to which we are already party, simply replacing the EU with the UK as co-signatory without further elaborate renegotiations. For other new global trade deals, independence from the EU and its remaining 27 Member States, will facilitate the forging of fast and rapid deals.

Ruling the Ruler? Britain’s legacy of political freedom will change post-referendum politics, says Politeia pamphlet
Publication: Monday 20th June
For many people, the EU referendum is about ‘Who should rule Britain?’. That question, says Sheila Lawlor, Politeia’s Director in Ruling the Ruler: Parliament, the People and Britain’s Political Identity, has been the key to Britain’s political evolution over centuries.
As Dr Lawlor, a British political historian explains, the freedom to decide the laws of the country, and hold the executive, whether king or government to account, has marked this country out for centuries, reinforced by the separation of powers.
