Just depends on which nation/nations you want to go into such a military deal with.

"Conservative pro-Remain MP Nicky Morgan tweeted: “Gulp.”

…Dover is “a key artery for UK trade heading to continental Europe” with more than 2.5m heavy goods vehicles passing through the port every year…goods worth £119bn passed through the port in 2015, “representing around 17% of the UK’s entire trade in goods by value”."

I think he understands the importance of Dover now…although there have been suggestions on this forum that a lot of that trade could ‘simply’ move up North.

Another murky story has emerged in the Observer as the Tax Payers’ Alliance has conceded that it launced a smear campaign against former employee Shahmir Sanni. It is said that they have fully conceded all Sanni’s claims in order to avoid the truth being examined in court. As we know this is all about the illegal funding scams used in the Leave campaign.

The Leave campaign’s illegal actions are coming into the light EVERYDAY and do more to undermine the referendum outcome than anything that Remainers can say.

Let us have a new CLEAN second referendum.

…business confidence falls away in the face of the damage done by Brexit as The Guardian reports:

One of the aspects of the difficulties being faced by business is the reduced availability of skilled migrant worked. The xenophobia and hostile environment caused by Brexit and its supporters has discouraged the people we need from coming to work in tbe UK.

More damage from the people that brought you Brexit.

A People’s Vote is needed to reverse this idiocy.

As Theresa May struggles to win cabinet and EU support for her Brexit plan, Sargeant warned of a wave of layoffs if there was no deal.
“It is a complete shambles. They have failed business. The Tory party aren’t making decisions for business, they are making decisions to prevent an implosion in their own party.”

Sargeant said he was speaking out because the next generation of “working men and women” were going to be hit hardest by Brexit, which he said was an act of complete folly.

His comments have particular significance given he is a member of Germany Industry UK that represents 100 German companies in Britain including BMW, Lufthansa and DHL


#548

Strange that the head of a German company trying to overturn Brexit Pete. I wonder why ??


#549

More European xenophobia again I have worked in Australia and many countries not in the EU all of which allowed in migrant workers. Why would we not have a defined scheme to allow in migrant workers when we need them for defined periods without open borders. More remain double speak trying to undermine democracy


#550

Ah Frog I see that manufacturing which is 8 percent of the economy is being affected by the trade wars mostly. You forgot to mention the positive services growth of 52 which makes up most of the economy. It seems more selective news from the remainers more double speak


#551

#556

Investors look after themselves and they will take advantage of this farce.

…we are seeing support for a second referendum grow.

The Independent reports that in the 67 most marginal seats there is a majority in favour of a second referendum. “The huge survey of more than 25,000 people revealed that a majority of voters in all 67 of the most marginal Tory seats now want the public to be given a fresh vote.”. The support was 56% in favour of a second referendum with 44% against.

In Leave voting Labour constituencies the support for a second referendum was even stronger at 51% in favour to 41% against.

This highlights the political risk to the Tories in defying current opinion

Could it be that Theresa May believes that pushing through her Chequers Brexit is worth it even if it means handing over the keys to No. 10 to Corbyn?

Yours everyday,

And the likes of Dyson manufacture in the far east in low tax jurisdictions. This is where he makes the money. It doesn’t look like investing in the UK to me.
