Demand Boris sticks to facts on trade

Boris Johnson claims we’ll get a good trade deal with the EU because Germany wants to sell us BMWs.

But we need them more than they need us. Our exports to the EU make up 13% of our GDP, but the EU’s exports to Britain represent just 3% of its GDP.

Many foreign firms, like Nissan, set up shop in Britain because we are a gateway to sell stuff to the whole EU. If we quit, Germany and France might try to grab our jobs by luring companies away from the UK.

Sign our petition to get Boris to stick to the facts on trade. We will deliver the signatures to Vote Leave’s HQ in London.

Demand Boris sticks to facts on trade

Dear Vote Leave

Your spokespeople repeatedly claim that the EU would strike a good trade deal with the UK because the EU sells more to us than we sell to Europe.

In reality, we’d be the big losers if Britain voted to leave. Our exports to the EU make up 13% of our GDP, but the EU’s exports to Britain represent just 3% of its GDP.

We demand that you stick to the facts on trade.
