Responding to comments by Iceland's PM Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson that "the UK is one of our most important trading partners and whatever you decide to do we would like to have a free trade deal", UKIP Deputy Chairman and UKIP Trade Spokesman William Dartmouth MEP said,
"What this demonstrates today is that Project Fear is in fact Project False, the UK would continue to trade profitably after Brexit. It is clear that the world is pragmatic and recognises that the UK is a great place to do business with, the thing is it will be an even better place to do business with when we have the freedom to act in our own interest, after we have voted to Leave the European Union.
"Rich countries like Iceland don't want to join the EU because it costs them to much. The sooner we leave the more prosperous we will be, its time to go!"
