Britain would be 'killed' in trade talks if it left EU, says French minister
Major powers such as China would have little interest in negotiating with the UK outside the EU, claims Emmanuel Macron

Britain would be “completely killed” in global trade negotiations if it voted to leave the EU because it would be reduced to the status of Jersey and Guernsey, the French economy minister, Emmanuel Macron, has said.

As David Davis said David Cameron should be stripped of his right to negotiate a British exit in the event of a vote to leave, Macron warned that major powers such as China would have little interest in negotiating with the UK outside the EU.

Macron, appearing on BBC1’s Andrew Marr Show to highlight the new political grouping he has established in France, raised Tata’s decision to abandon its UK steel operations to illustrate the dangers of a British exit. This includes selling off its Port Talbot steel plant, the UK’s largest, which employs 4,000 workers.
