Nothing in the question about it being "only about trade", and the political direction of the European Community was well known at that time.
The clue is in the words "Common Market".

Even in the event of a " no deal " the UK will stick to current EU rules and regs on food and agriculture to protect UK producers.
Concession obtained by Gove.
This to last for at least 9 months from leaving with no deal. ( Reuters ).
Even No Deal is no longer No Deal.

Spectacular. Pick out two words, and ignore everything else in all the posts on this subject.

The Cliff's Edge

News tonight about the ceramics industry in the North which is fearful of a no deal. Their products (eg. Dunoon cups) which are mostly sold into the EU would be hit with a 12% tariff, whilst the UK itself would have 0% tariffs on incoming ceramics, likely leading to cheap overseas ceramics out-competeing UK manufacturers. Small sector, but job losses would ensue.
