Benefits of the EU to trade are imaginary says thinktank

Think tank Civitas says that the benefits to trade of being in the EU are "imaginary" and "empty rhetoric".

Civitas says that the UK's exports to non-EU member states are rising whilst the EU's share is decreasing and points to the success of European countries outside the EU such as Switzerland and Iceland in negotiating trade agreements without the corruption and bureaucracy of the EU oligarchy.
