The Bruges Group spearheaded the intellectual battle to win a vote to leave the European Union and, above all, against the emergence of a centralised EU state.

Tariffs, tariffs, tariffs

​We are now in a trade war. It is the unelected EU and Communist Party controlled China on one side and the United States of America on the other. Let us remember that the US charges 2.6% tariffs of imports into the USA. The EU by contrast, charges a 10% tariff on goods coming from the USA. No wonder and it is to no surprise that President Donald Trump isn't happy about that. The EU went all in claiming that Trump cannot impose tariffs but the EU can. That argument doesn't stack up. This was known since March 2018 that Donald Trump was going to put tariffs on other countries' goods. Those trading partners were given exemptions, which expired on the 1st June 2018. The US levied a 25% duty specifically on steel from the EU, Canada and Mexico. This unsurprisingly prompted anger from globalist governments and globalist business leaders.

EU tariffs have caused food prices to go up artificially against British consumers. The EU claimed that they can fight back. Their plan? The EU drew up a list of US goods for retaliatory tariffs, including Harley-Davidson motorcycles, bourbon whiskey and Levi jeans. Up to €2.8 billion worth of products could face tariffs of 25%. I will bet on who will win this trade war. The United States. Easily. Why? For those in the BBC, ITV or Sky News along with Remoaner elitists who don't know geography, let me give you an example. The USA is a big country with a huge landmass. In fact, bigger than the European Union. The EU is not that big geographically. The USA are already reopening the coal plants. Furthermore, factories are returning to the USA. What does the EU have? They partially deindustrialised their nations and are not thinking of rebuilding their industrial base anytime soon.

The EU openly backed Hillary Clinton in the US Presidential election campaign in 2016. I think that Donald Trump is giving them some big payback. I would say that this is Trump's way of saying "Payback time!" With Britain out of the EU, we could be exempt from these tariffs. Why is that? you ask. I'll tell you. Donald Trump has a deep love for the United Kingdom. He has British ancestry. Trump also expressed numerous times of preferential treatment for Britain over the EU. I have said this in my Liberation of Britain Part 1 book whereby Trump wants a powerful trade deal with the United Kingdom. What's not to like? Here is an extract from my book The Liberation of Britain Part 1:

Donald Trump also said that he expected an agreement on new trading arrangements with Britain that was very powerful and would be great for both countries.

Tell that to those in the far-left of the Labour Party. We had Shadow International Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner coming out saying that Trump's tariffs were based on a lie. What lie was that, Barry? Statistics don't lie. The EU that Barry supports is actually pillaging money from the USA in two ways. One is through the EU's tariffs on American goods. The second is through not spending as much on defence as EU countries should. If Barry wants to complain, I recommend he complain about those freeloaders, like the German government, the French government and the Latvian government, to name a few. And he should tell them to pay their fare shares! More constructive responses have been made, fortunately. Tata Steel came out calling for swift action in response to the tariffs. British steel exports of aluminium to the USA are tiny. Not so bad for us, but very bad for the EU27.

The only way for Britain to seek exemptions is by leaving the EU, including the Customs Union. I said this explicitly in my book Restoring Britain post-Brexit. Here is an extract from my book Restoring Britain post-Brexit saying why:

This is because the EU is ultra-protectionist. 45th US President Donald Trump pointed that out when he expressed the frustrations of many when he took aim at the EU's ultra-protectionist policies. While supporters of Brussels talked endlessly about the wonders of free trade between members of the EU they are less keen to discuss some of the enormous tariffs on goods from countries outside the customs union.
