ARCH-BREXITEER and chairman of pub company JD Wetherspoon, Tim Martin, will visit Wrexham as part of a tour of more than 100 Wetherspoon pubs across the UK.

The out-spoken Leave campaigner, who believes the UK should walk away from negotiations with the European Union (EU) without a deal, shirking the estimated £39bn 'divorce bill', will visit The Elihu Yale pub in Wrexham on January 25 at 11am.

The 63-year-old businessman will speak to customers and the local press about what be believes are the huge economic advantages of leaving the EU on March 29, 2019 without a deal, and of adopting the free trade approach of countries like New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Singapore and Israel.

These advantages will be lost, Mr Martin argues, if the government signs up for a deal with the EU, which keeps the UK tied in to the protectionist EU customs union.

Mr Martin said: “Now that the details of the appalling deal, negotiated by the Downing Street kitchen cabinet have become clear, it is certain the UK will be financially far better off by choosing no deal.

“The hard mathematics demonstrate beyond doubt that no deal leaves the public and the UK better-off on day one after Brexit. “The UK will immediately gain by non-payment of the proposed £39 billion, for which lawyers have repeatedly confirmed there is no legal liability.

“No deal also allows parliament to slash import taxes (tariffs) on over 12,000 non-EU products, including oranges, rice, coffee, wine and children’s clothes. Ending these tariffs will immediately reduce shop prices to UK consumers.

“There is no loss of income to the government from slashing these tariffs, since the proceeds are currently remitted to Brussels.

“Most importantly, no deal allows the UK to regain control of historic fishing grounds, where 60 per cent of fish today are landed by EU boats.

“In reality, Theresa May’s deal is a mechanism for remaining trapped in an undemocratic and financially inefficient system.”

This week more than 200 MPs have signed a letter calling for Theresa May to rule out a no-deal Brexit, with Labour MP and chair of the home affairs select committee, Yvette Cooper saying "the damage from no deal would be deep and long-lasting".
