What’s a ‘customs union’? ask Brexit voters
BREXIT voters have asked what a ‘customs union’ is after discovering the term this morning.
As Downing Street confirmed that Britain would ‘categorically’ be leaving the customs union with the EU at some point, millions of Brexit voters said it sounded interesting.
Wayne Hayes, from Lincoln, said: “Does it involve exchanging customs? Does it mean that British men have to kiss each other on the cheek?
“Does it mean that French drivers have to give you a quick wave if you pull over to let them pass on a narrow country road?”
Eleanor Johnson, from Telford, added: “Do Spanish people have to drink tea? Do I have to go to a bullfight?
“I’m not sure about this, ll have to think about it.
“Still, at least it doesn’t have anything to do with massive amounts of trade.”
