The Prime Minister has been facing pressure from small British traders about the swathe of red tape they must tackle to continue importing and exporting to the European Union after Brexit.
Boris Johnson has been facing criticism about the lack of information and certainty given to small traders about the bureaucratic changes they would face after Brexit.
UK importers and exporters will face increasing red tape from January 1, 2022 to continue trading with the European Union, leaving radion host Matthew Wright warning Britons were “wrong” to think the process of leaving the bloc is now over.
Speaking on LBC, the broadcaster said: “If soaring energy bills, rising inflation, and sinking wages aren’t going to give you the New Year’s blues, wait until I tell you about New Year’s joy Brexit is going to be bringing us.
“If you’re under the impression Boris Johnson got Brexit done at the start of this year, you’d be wrong.
“More problems with Brexit are just around the corner.
“Lorries could be delayed or refused entry to ports because UK firms aren’t prepared for the extra red tape that’s going to revolve around importing goods from the EU come midnight on New Year’s Eve.”
