Even if it is true that 87% businesses do not trade with the EU, it does not follow that they do not depend on EU trade. Many of them have customers who can only afford to buy their goods/services because they are employed by businesses that do trade with the EU, or the 87% may buy products from wholesalers who trade with the EU.   It is a statistic that is easily misunderstood by the unwary.
