LEADING Brexiteer Daniel Hannan has clearly outlined exactly how the UK will prosper outside of the European Union during a fiery debate with a Labour MP. The Conservative MEP highlighted the markets the United Kingdom can trade with once it has cut ties with the European Union. During the encounter on Sunday Politics, Mr Hannan claimed that it would be “incredibly defeatist” if the UK did not seek fresh trade deals after Brexit. The Labour MP, Seema Malhotra, asked about the risks behind moving to new markets which could economically impact Britsh families, which prompted a quick response from Mr Hannan. He said: “Obviously what we want is to have free and frictionless trade with the EU and to have the freedom to make free trade deals further afield. “The EU doesn’t have any trade deal in place with the US which is the world’s largest economy, with China, the world’s second-largest. With fast-growing economies like India, with old friends like Australia. “The idea that we can’t do better as a free trading maritime country, making our own trade deals and bringing benefits to people in this country I think is incredibly defeatist. “I mean are we really saying that it is a good future for us to be selling to Ireland with five million people that to China with more than a billion? “That seems to me to be quite an unambitious vision of our future.” When the Labour Party MP outlined the UK export more to Ireland than China, the Conservative MEP said: “That is our problem. “That is precisely our problem. Which of those two is the better long-term growth prospect?” The comments come as the Prime Minister is set to deliver a speech outlining the UK’s plans for its future trading relationship with the EU. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, Anastassia Beliakova, Head of Trade Policy at British Chambers of Commerce, remains confident that Britain will soon be signing trade deals but admitted it could still take some time. She said: “Once we have left the European Union we certainly can have an independent trade policy. Indeed we have seen that it is a very important political ambition for the UK Government. “Will we sign new trade deals? Definitely. How long will it take to sign them? That still remains to be seen. “At the moment there are preliminary discussions, there has been some scoping out, but we are not yet allowed to sign our full really comprehensive trade deals as a member of the EU. “There might be a bit of time between us leaving the EU and the signing of these deals, but I am certain that there will be some forthcoming.”
