(Compare Hannan's claims in 2016 with the current reality.)
What, then, of the UK? Despite the UK technically being free of Brussels ‘red tape’, the EU remains its chief export market.

And so, EU regulations become de facto UK ones.
Women know Brexit is toxic. On International Women’s Day, dare we think of life without Brexit – and make it happen?
The challenge posed by Britain leaving the EU gave the European Commission an opportunity to embed its values and its members’ interests.
Set in a dystopian post-Brexit Britain, a new video game follows the struggles of a bouncer of foreign ancestry in a world of xenophobia and immigrant camps, but gamers are divided over its message.
'Not Tonight has already been accused of being propaganda by enraged Brexiteers, but by fostering highly engaged community and turning the furious controversy against itself, Rose and Constant have something resembling a map of how to survive this new, uncharted frontier of politically charged satirical games.'

Even in the long, bedraggled and dishonourable retreat from certainty which has characterised the realisation that Brexit is not going to work and never could, this week surely marks an apostasy none of us could ever have expected.
In business, in life, we make mistakes. It’s inevitable, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with it. Make a mistake, see it, recognise it, try to remedy it. It happens all the time.
Following the UK’s departure from the EU, the UK’s veterinary sector was hit hard. Now, shortages threaten food safety risks and delays at borders – so what can we do to change this bleak narrative?
South Wales-based wine importer Daniel Lambert challenged an MP to a radio debate on the benefits claimed for “pints of wine”. Will he do it?

A slow metric transition in Britain has led to widespread myths about metrication in the UK. Unfortunately, many (but certainly not all) anti-EU campaigners have also opposed metrication and have spread myths about metrication to attack Britain’s participation in the EU.
Today is one year since the “Choice on units of measurement: markings and sales” consultation closed. It is about Government proposals to remove the requirement to show metric units alongside imperial units in trade or allow metric units to be shown with less prominence than imperial units.
