1:18 pm
scenario of course that's going to mean we're going to have to increase our prices by another four point five percent after march two thousand and nineteen no brigs a deal that's the nightmare scenario most of the supply pars come from their british neighbor so a new deal brags it would suddenly mean customs duties border controls paperwork and delivery delays fed up with the uncertainty combi live has decided to increasingly avoid british suppliers the most prominent victim the seat for nearly two decades drivers sent in a british made seat but that now comes from germany. on the last thing any supplier wants to see is a story move business from them to shore smaller markets like germany or in france if you look at politicians decisions can be left to the last minute but in business we have to plan for the future and there's also the uncertainty over another major sticking point in bragg's of negotiations the issue of the irish border nearly ten
1:19 pm
percent of the company's employees come from british northern ireland the last thing we want to do is a hard border that's going to slow down the transit time over employees here and from work on to be an employee that works in our plan is a rich tax a rich shoshu security what is that going to be the future going forward it will not have to be paid in northern ireland there's no longer any try. that london brussels will agree on a future without hard borders or customs and the consequences are increasingly apparent everyone suffers but especially britain breaks it stands to ruin trade between europe and just one of its partners the u.k. stands to risk wrecking trade with twenty seven. of a war i'm joined by lord mark malloch brown former u.k. government minister and united nations deputy secretary general mark is also the chairman of a london based a tech company smartmatic and he chairs the lobby organization called best for britain campaigning against brics it mark good to have you with us why campaigning
1:20 pm
again with the brics it well two things one you said i know. you're in the world like a. home second and it's business man today i do see that gary. this is not fair play that a lot of businesses which so it won't be this morning you're are essentially being forced to be. so the. market share it's so tragic that this has got to this now the european union proposed to prolong the transition period with that help companies or would it just prolong the uncertainty. i suspect it will be uncertainty because until the any extension of the transition period has been linked to clarity the end goal.
1:21 pm
now it seems. that a long time for any british government trying something. different parts you know ultimately bridge has gone up you know just within this maze cabinet within the party and move rudely within westminster and the country at large is being kept out of this arcane introverted. political also highly technical discussion and you know i just don't think that this is staying the watch mon. country is very angry this is totally. one way or the other now but tragically as you mentioned it's a problem especially also with the recent mason government the labor party isn't particularly anti breck's it either so let's say that breaks it happens what kind of future relationship do you think could replace e.u. membership best this talk about a super canada deal or membership in e.a.a.
1:22 pm
the e.a.a. . well look i don't know we're like a labor party it's incredibly disappointing that all of it is decision of other political life ministries and please it's not hers the government of the day it's spectacular on national issues of this kind the two party political system and you know i think going forward there's no doubt that business and political establishment will try and preserve this closer relationship with europe as possible now whether it's going to or a solution into difficulty is going to be the betrayal of ordinary people not that this whole thing represents for those who get press it there are a people very poor to go on their own stand living collapsing in a way they were promised wouldn't get bread that is something else stop talk turned into a big functional being similar prostrations frankly mothers who get it so they
1:23 pm
where another political establishment come under massive stress and we will see something of the turmoil that you're seeing in german politics today and i think you know this will not very very well be leading as country cut and the government under stress is not good news for the economy either i suggest lord mark malloch brown there thank you so much for your time. well while breaks it's talks in brussels are put on ice some you member states all starting to prepare for much twenty nineteen when britain will no longer be a part of the e.u. a single market and customs union a big issue especially for the netherlands because of the larger volume of trade with britain via the port off ross said on the dutch ministry of economic affairs has designed to a checklist called the brics it's gone to help companies prepare for a post breaks it era. every day at one on the dot the daily fresh company is in

1:25 pm
to the united kingdom officials have long calculated what a hard bricks it would cost instead of one paper knowing more customs forms would be added for the export of fruit and vegetables nine hundred new customs officers would have to be recruited plus one hundred forty three veterinarians for the food checks and that would only be the beginning says the briggs an expert at the port of rotterdam. the terminal so at the border the vet's office we're in the process of getting ready were informing the. terminals in the forwarders but that's not enough because most of the goods twenty five percent of them come from germany and we don't have the feeling that exporters in germany are as aware of bricks of problems as we are here. in fact the dutch ministry of economic affairs has sent a checklist called the briggs and scam to thousands of companies to better prepare them for possible problems run by means filled out the questionnaire but it hasn't made his worries disappear the stone dealer imports slayed from wales and sells it
