The advantage while out though is we get some more freedom to open trade deals outside the EU so hopefully we wont have all our eggs in one basket when the EU goes down in flames.
"Trade deals" are really more of a political sound bite.
We dont have a trade deal with America yet we can still buy American goods and services and vice versa.
Leaving the EU means leaving a market place of half a billion people that constitutes our biggest trading partner. So while yes i agree that leaving the EU might open up a few doors I think that is offset by the huge door that its going to close.
