Germany - Leads In World Trade - #Brexit Myth, Busted ...

The one #Brexit Myth that has been parroted ad nauseam since Day One of the referendum is this ..

"We Have To Leave The EU To Trade With The World"
Apparently Germany didn't get the memo. They became the World's Biggest Exporter by the end of 2016, and maintained their position in 2017. Clearly being in the EU is no barrier to Trading with the World. Right now even France sells more of it's exports outside of the EU than we do.

If we are unable to keep up wth World Trade from inside the EU, what chance do we have outside? As a minnow with no negotiating muscle?
