Re: Brexit just gets better?

>Your discussion above is a little ingenuous, not least because tariffs on imports to the UK will of course hit companies like BMW, Audi, Mercedes, etc. through a drop in sales

Problem with this argument is that we already happily pay more for new cars in the UK than in Germany (UK specifications are contrived for this reason).

Similarly, ask a Brit what they are paying for a new car and you'll get a monthly figure, absent deposit or trade-in - ask a German and you'll get the actual price of the car, regardless of the payment plan. Even a 20% tariff would disappear because UK customers are happy to be mugged.
