The current edition of Eurofacts points out that the USA, 3,000 miles away, not an EU member, having to pay tariffs on its exports, and not even having a free trade agreement with the EU, manages to sell more to the EU than Britain does.

In 2002. US exports (goods, services, income) to the EU-15 were $340.6 billion while UK exports to the EU-14 were a mere $204 billion.

Perhaps, since so many jobs in the USA depend on trade with the EU, the new president – whoever he might be – should consider getting in his application to join sharpish.
