We do need the single market and a voice, both in Europe and as part of Europe. If you doubt that then to start with there’s zero chance of getting implementation of (existing unimplemented) protection for our patents and copyrights from China if we’re not part of Europe when they get it, and without patent and copyright protection from what will soon be the largest global market our international trade would be crippled.
