GLOBAL BREXIT: Commons should give green light to Swiss-style deal, says Tory MEP

BRITAIN is likely to get a Switzerland-style trade deal with the European Union thanks to the “most Brexit-friendly Commons ever”, a Conservative MEP has claimed.

Daniel Hannan claims a so-called hard Brexit will not mean that Theresa May will refuse to work with allies in the European Union.

Instead, he suggests most “Leavers want an open and global UK, in which we maintain our existing EU ties”.

And he has several ideas on how to make this happen, while still ensuring Britain can “take back control”.

Writing in the Sun, Mr Hannan suggested the UK adopt a simple trade deal with the EU like South Korea - in which Britain would not be forced to pay budget contributions but exports may drop and the border-free deal in Ireland would remain a huge issue.

On the other end, he also suggested a Norway-style deal - inside the common market so beneficial for trade but the UK would still have to accept freedom of movement and continue to pay into the budget.
