LABOUR’S demand that Britain stays in an EU customs union after Brexit would see us shackled on the world stage.
As Liam Fox has pointed out, remaining trapped by Brussels means our once great trading nation would be forced into subservience.
Alamy Live News Trade Secretary Liam Fox says if Britain remains in an EU custom union ‘we would ourselves be traded’
The Trade Secretary told the 1922 Committee this week: “The UK would have a new role – we would ourselves be traded.”
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves, Mr Fox. Brussels would be able to negotiate access to UK markets as EU policy, irrespective of the wishes or the interests of the UK.
Japan would have access to UK markets but we wouldn’t have access to theirs.
We would also be disadvantaged in any trade disputes in response to American tariffs.
Such an outcome would be a disaster for this country and a betrayal of Brexit voters.
Theresa May is flirting with real danger if she is seriously entertaining Jeremy Corbyn’s terms just to get her deal over the line.
Labour even want to tie the hands of whoever succeeds her by writing their demands into legally binding text.
If Brexit is to mean Brexit, this is one red line she must not cross.

Doc’s sky-high pay is sick
THE chronic shortage of funds for the NHS remains a national disgrace.
So it beggars belief to learn that a doctor is earning nearly £600,000 a year — four times as much as the Prime Minister.
Reuters An unidentified doctor is earning four times as much as the PM just as the NHS is suffering a chronic shortage of funds
However talented and dedicated this unidentified medic may be, it is surely impossible to justify such a sky-high salary when budgets are so tight.
Only recently, some doctors controversially proposed charging patients £25 a time to see their GP to help meet the shortfall — an idea that, thankfully, bit the dust.
But if salaries mushroom like this, the Government’s £20billion cash injection into the NHS will soon seem little more than a pin prick.
