The EU has indeed cut off their nose to spite their face to get back at the UK for daring to leave the EU. German exports to the UK fell by 30% between December and January, resulting in a £1.7Billion loss.
The Germans are blaming the pandemic for this fall, but realistically people have still been buying. While EU Trade plummets, UK trade with those outside of lockdown Europe rose by nearly 10%. This shows the EU engine continues to burn out and slow down.
A COMBINATION of both Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic has left a devastating impact on Germany’s export market.
