Time to leave the EU basket case?

Britain now exports more to the rest of the world than the EU

BRITAIN sent a defiant message to Europe yesterday after it emerged our trade is booming with the rest of the world.

We are exporting more goods to non-EU countries than those in the economic bloc for the first time in 40 years, figures showed.

It delivers a crushing blow to the Euro-­fanatics who insist that we can’t survive without Brussels – while boosting the ­Daily Express’s Crusade to quit the EU.

Senior Tory MP Douglas Carswell said last night: “These trade figures point to our ­future outside the European Union. We thought we had joined a prosperous common market. It’s turning into a basket case. We need to be where the growth is – outside the EU.”

The Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) said growth in Asian markets coupled with the crisis in the eurozone are key factors in Britain’s trading picture.
