Sir, I run a small company that is not unsuccessful in trading in the EU. I have now seen the plans of both major parties — the Conservatives intend to make it much more difficult to trade profitably with our EU clients, and the Labour party intends to take a much larger share of what profits we nevertheless manage to make.

Does either party have the first idea how, and by whom, the wealth of this country is generated?
