Who loves Brexit? Irish distributors ... after their sales jump by a third

Re: "the country has an advantageous business and digital tax environment"

There's many things in your comment that I think are wrong, but I'll focus on just one:

"For example the EU is a huge isolationist block of high tariffs and refusal to accept outside products."

To help me understand, can you give me three examples of goods with high tariffs? Also, please prove that the tariffs are high by showing the comparative tariffs of the following countries for those same goods: USA, Japan, Russia, South Africa, India, China, Australia.

(Please quote your sources.)

I'm genuinely curious. I hear this said a lot, but I never see any proof. Yes, the EU is protectionist. So are almost all countries and trading blocks in the world.

So I'm unsure what the point of leaving such protections behind is. These figures would help me greatly. Thanks!
