DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4121* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 14 May 19

The EU costs us every year. If we stay in long enough it must eventually cost us more than leaving.

That does not follow. The cost/benefit in terms of trade are recurring and the costs of leaving you are referring to are off-off. It is certainly possible that we cannot negotiate as good a trade deal with a major player as we have through the EU - and I think we must all agree that our negotiation skills so far have not been brilliant - in which case we would make a nominal loss every year, rather than the nominal improvement that would be needed to clear the 'cost of leaving.'
