The guys obviously upset if a hard brexit happens because the contributions will stop and they will have to draw the money from elsewhere.
It looks like he’s lost the plot and lashing out at those who disagree with him. Maybe the EU is not all it is cracked out to be.
I would have liked to see the politicians get on and get some deal but that’s looking very unlikely with irrational meddling politicians from the EU.

Sky Sources say Japanese car manufacturer Honda is preparing to close its Swindon plant with the loss of 3,500 jobs
Although rumour has it that this is not tied to Brexit, as much as to the recent signing of the EU-Japan trade deal.

Sounds like they're not planning to move the plant to mainland Europe, but rather are going to move all production back to Japan because they no longer have to pay tariffs on Japan-to-EU exports and they can undertake production 'back home' more efficiently.

Tangentially, I guess this is still an anti-Brexit argument, just not as direct, as it emphasizes how signing free trade deals left and right with other countries is not going to bring manufacturing back to Britain for anything even remotely commoditized, as we just don't do it as cheaply and efficiently as other competing nations...…...

They are also closing their factory in Turkey to move production back to Japan so irrelevant. One thing I find interesting is that the factory will remain as is until 2021/2 so just confirms nothing to do with Brexit.
Bmi airline administration is all about Brexit so some media would like us to think but it has been stated they have been losing substantial amounts of money each month for a long time and have basically run out.

Brexit is a contributory factor with the Airline, it is not the only factor though. The collapse in the exchange rate for £ Sterling was wholly down to Brexit which has added a good 15% to their costs.

Anyone else noticed that for certain posters nothing bad has anything to do with Brexit. They gleefully cheer on what they call no-deal Brexit without the faintest idea of the consequences.

Still You've got your conutry back. Or Rather Jacob rees Mogg's got it- and he';s moving his hedge fund to Dublin. Believe there'll be some vacancies for forelock-tuggers down Somerset way

Has anyone also noticed that with some posters everything bad is to do with Brexit. The world economy is shrinking as is the European economy with Italy already in recession and others on the edge of it,not forgetting the debt to GDP of some of these countries.
Getting out of theEu now will save us some of the fall out in 10 years when it has all gone tits up.
Just for the record I have travelled to many countries in the Eu and will continue to do so when time allows and like the people I have come across generally. I also think there are things we could learn from them rather than places elsewhere.
