So, you still don't understand that making trade more difficult with the huge wealthy market next door will reduce our GDP growth? Or that dropping out of multiple EU negotiated FTAs will make trade more difficult with the rest of the world? You don't understand this?
We have already said we want free trade. It is the EU that is raising the barriers against that, not Brexiteers.
Do I see goal posts shifting? Nobody's raising barriers. The barriers exist for all third countries. We are choosing to become a third country, and by doing so we place ourselves on the wrong side of those barriers.
But that's beside the point. Those barriers will be a drain on GDP. That's why there is no Brexit dividend.
