You don't need a trade deal to trade.

Tariffs will be charged.

Trade deals are to lower theses tariffs.
Tariffs work both ways, it's going to be interesting because BMW may end up paying a tariff to import mini's into the EU or will the EU give them preferential treatment because they are German.

From some of the rhetoric it appears that the some of the EU Bureaucrats want to punish the UK for having the temerity to leave and to try and discourage other countries from following suit but they are trying to do it in a way that makes it appear that they are not imposing sanctions on the UK.

What is stopping the UK from buying goods through another country that already has a trade deal with the EU?

Just a thought.

does any other country have a trade deal with the eu.wasn't that one of the points.the eu is to beurocratic to do stuff like trade deals easily
It's taken Canada 7 years so far to try and negotiate a trade deal, can't see the UK being able to negotiate one the way they work at the moment, I think Germany will want to sort out a trade deal pretty quick but I doubt the rest of the EU will be in any great hurry, Mr Junker will want a deal that punishes the UK for having the audacity to leave.

I think france may as eager as the germans. no more peugeots, citroens and renaults. infact, thats got to be a good reason for us not bothering.

We will leave the EU. But if we want fair trade deals then they (Brussels pricks) will insist we abide by all their rules and regulations. And this government like any other we are likely to get will agree..........we will be out of the EU but still put up with their bollocks. What a shame Farage (or someone will balls just as big) wont be leading us through this

The biggest threat to anything is the media and people's belief that they speak the truth. One of last week's headlines in the Evening Standard spouted off that house prices had already dropped significantly since the referendum. What bollocks - paper cited a few examples of properties that buyers had just significantly reduced in price - and the real reason as anyone with half a brain knows is - they had been overpriced previously and the sellers perhaps sensibly reduced the previously over inflated asking prices.
I would imagine 'behind the scenes' there are quite a few European car producers and domestic appliance manufacturers who will be lobbying discreetly behind the scenes that EU don't make things too difficult for UK to buy European produced goods and not to affect their sales too much - and that also goes for value of the pound - a weak pound vs Euro will hurt them too!

The other woman Andrea Leadsom:

In April 2013 at the Hansard Society's annual parliamentary affairs lecture, Leadsom warned against the UK leaving the European Union, stating that "I think it would be a disaster for our economy and it would lead to a decade of economic and political uncertainty at a time when the tectonic plates of global success are moving.
