Nigel Farage says Brexit 'no-deal' good for Kent

By KentOnline reporter

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage says a 'no-deal' Brexit would be good for Kent thanks to an increase in trade from the Far East.

The MEP is set to lose his job in March as Britain leaves the European Union, but most people still don't clearly understand how it will affect the county.

Newly-released government documents show some of the Brexit implications are likely to be an increase in the cost of card payments, more customs checks for Kent's organic food producers when exporting goods to Europe, and pharmaceutical companies may need to stockpile six-week's worth of medicines.

But despite this Mr Farage says in terms of the global economy the Eurozone only accounts for 15% of trade and in the coming decades the far bigger market to be aligned with will be the Far East, as Joe Coshan reports.
