Proof UK is better out of the EU.

Sales of British goods to the world’s fast-growing countries rocketed by more than 11 per cent over the last year. At the same time, British exports to the 26 European Union nations fell by 1.5 per cent.

Official data showed that half the UK’s exports now go outside the EU and trade with China, India and the US is soaring.

Tory minister Matthew Hancock said the figures were “really extraordinary” while anti-Brussels campaigners seized on them as confirmation that Britain would be better off outside the EU. Conservative MP Douglas Carswell said: “With every set of trade figures, the case for quitting the EU gets stronger. Europe is the only continent that is not growing, so why are we still tied to this stagnating trade bloc?”

Tim Aker of the anti-EU campaign group Get Britain Out, said: “These figures show the EU is the past. The future is outside the EU with new economies and markets crying out for our exports.

“Only outside the EU can we negotiate trade deals to suit our national interest. The longer we stay in the EU, the longer we will be exposed to the eurozone crisis. Businesses are starting to look beyond the EU, it’s high time politicians did too.”

Euro MP William Dartmouth, the UK Independence Party’s trade spokesman, said: “These figures underline the reality. Britain cannot afford to remain shackled to the EU. For prosperity, for jobs and for our future, we must get out.”

The EU has destroyed our fishing industry, flooded our country with immigrants and costs the UK millions a day to be a member. Only French farmers win due to the money they get back from the CAP.
