  11. On what terms should we leave the EU?

    Ben Weisz

    Political reporter, BBC Sussex

    The debate about whether to leave the EU is largely over – we’re leaving, the Government insists.

    But just when you thought political chatter might turn to something else, a new debate is opening up – on what terms should we leave?

    We asked two key thinkers in the Sussex business world what they’d want to see in any deal to exit the EU.  

    EU and UK flags

    Futurologist Nick Price set out his best-case and worst-case scenario for the UK in 2021 – one where we’d taken the opportunity to trade with the world and expand our economy, and one where we’d hesitated - the economy stagnating while we dithered over what to do.

    Containers

    Businessman Brett North then told us that to avoid that worst-case scenario and get to the rosier situation, the UK needed to act decisively, do more to nurture homegrown talent, and shift the immigration debate from one about numbers to one about skills.
