Reader's Letter Of The Day

From City AM:

Lucy Thomas' declaration that 'nearly half our trade is with other EU countries* is, to be charitable, economical with the truth.

About 80 per cent of our trade is internal - and only 8% of our trade is with EU countries.

As the referendum approaches, we must not allow these distortions to become accepted truth.

Chris Mounsey.

* Pedant point - they are not "EU countries", they are "EU Member States".

Eurozone nations have to export to the UK because of the idiotic way they have set their economy up. Remember this.

Well, you can see where she got here figure from, (about half our external trade is with the EU) but it's still a lie.
