It is fine if you think 600billion Pounds / 10.000pounds per citizen, is a price to pay, but you never were in the "clutches" of the EU, whatever that even mean. And more importantly, it was never disclosed beforehand, before the 2016 vote, that it would be that expensive to do. Quite important information to have to reach a decision, don't you think?
The problem with your numbers 90% is theoretical it is assuming the economy would have moved in a certain way you can’t miss what you never had.
But one estimate that the government has actully spent on Brexit is 4.4 billion pounds by Andrew MacAskill from Reuters March 5th via the NAO so you can conclude by the end of the year another couple of billion, worth every penny if you ask me.
No, the question was if 600bn / 10.000 per citizen was ok, and you answered yes. Which is ok if you think that, that is your choice, but you cannot say now that 10bn is ok. The 200bn is including the economic consequences of the Brexit saga. Only quoting the government spending is presenting only a fraction of the true cost and thus is misleading.

Sure, I have read the stated reason and the additional benefit of producing in the EU instead of the UK: you can sell it in the EU, not just in the UK.
So are you saying anything made in the UK after January 1st 2001 cannot be sold in the EU.... that’s an interesting way to put it
No, nowhere did I say that, so don't put words in my mouths.
BTW 2021, we are in the '20-ish already.

You realize that with a desired hard Brexit the prices of UK made cars will skyrocket within the EU.
