Back to "open borders" - my point (that admittedly I didn't explicitly state) was that, if we go no-deal, we will be on WTO rules from 30th March - we will not have any trade agreements with ANYONE. I think we are all, at least, agreed on that. Under WTO rules , we cannot give preferential treatment to anyone if not in a trade deal. So if we were to let EU stuff go through our borders unchecked, then we need to let EVERYTHING go through unchecked. Otherwise we are in breach of WTO rules. Happy to be corrected, if I have misunderstood or misrepresented anything.
