Potential 16-20% increase in prices on clothing.

Also we'll lose out on the EU Japan trade agreement that's recently come into play, which includes reducing import tariffs, and in some cases to zero, on clothing and shoes.

Yes, just you wait. It's all just a spectacularly elaborate bargaining ploy.

We already have trade deals secured with countries that are equal to something like 40-50% of the world's GDP - and that's with something like 35 out of the total 40 advanced economies on the planet. The remaining 50% is spread between 100+ very underdeveloped nations that can't afford our goods and services, because their citizens make on average £200 a year.

How does it get better than 0% FTAs?

Presumably the 40 deals we'll be signing just after midnight on the 29th of March.
