In the News / Re: Brexit: Ford 'steps up preparations to move production abroad'
« Last post by baldy on February 14, 2019, 08:55:28 AM »


personally, I think the UK needs a clean BREXIT to then force free trading terms between the UK and EU .... which makes complete sense because the EU sells to the UK over a hundred Billion of £s worth of goods and service more than we sell to them.


But we already have free trading terms with the rest of the EU..


True, but this is not the reason for BREXIT. The reasons are many, not least uncontrolled immigration and the consequences for our over-run services and housing crisis plus the ability to create free trade deals with other countries around the world where the EU has not been able to so far ...

I expect The Brexiteers will say they were already planning it.

Yeah, or label it as anti-Brexit propaganda or "Project Fear Mk 6 on Steroids" whilst they bury their heads in a big pile of sand with a union jack sticking out the top and Rule Brittania blaring from the rooftop dreaming of days gone by when Britain ruled the world and Atlas's of the world were mostly coloured pink!!

in response to Baldy and who he looks to as inspiration, i would have to say that having to deal with M r Dyson and his massive land acquisition in the uk, he is sees, profit and takes it wherever it may laie
My two Big Guys that I give credit to to

Mr  Joseph bamford, owner of JCB. remains loyal to the uk and
Mr Frank Williams of formula 1 , based in wattage, just been there today and although Mercedes build the engine he was resolute the Williams is a UK affair.the factory is so worthy of a visit, and if you wanted a day out.... do it
I am sure there are many others, but Baldy had his few, i thought these needed to be added



I certainly agree with the late Joseph Bamford's son, Anthony Bamford (or Baron Bamford), who is clearly a successful and highly knowledgeable entrepreneur and BREXITEER who regularly says that the UK can easily trade on WTO terms and can agree free trade terms with the EU.

I don't follow any sports person very closely and don't see sport as relevant to BREXIT or international trade negotiations. Indeed, I think sport is largely unaffected by BREXIT.

I think Ford mean what they say on the basis that if a no deal occurs and WTO terms apply, then tariffs would be added by the EU to cars imported from the UK, thus making the cars uncompetitive and harder to sell in the EU countries ... so Ford may as well move the plants to the EU to avoid these EU import tariffs.

However, I think the calculation being made by clean brexiteers who prefer a clean ("no deal") BREXIT is that the EU will quickly realise that their own car makers are being hit harder through tariffs applied to their imports to the UK .... and this will affect german car imports to the UK hardest of all .... so the thinking is that the Germans would quickly force the EU to agree with the UK a free trade deal that avoids any tariffs both ways.

In conclusion, Ford are issuing a clear warning about what would happen if there is a "no deal" BREXIT and if WTO tariffs are not quickly removed soon after.

personally, I think the UK needs a clean BREXIT to then force free trading terms between the UK and EU .... which makes complete sense because the EU sells to the UK over a hundred Billion of £s worth of goods and service more than we sell to them.

The worst problem here is that most MPs have no business or commercial sense at all and don't understand the need to negotiate hard on the basis that your own side has options including walking away from a bad deal. The UK clearly has a great hand to play because walking away will damage the German car businesses more than our own .... and it is perfectly reasonable and sensible to expect the Germans to force the EU to straighten everything up so that their current trade advantage of a huge trade surplus with the Uk is kept.

In the News / Brexiteer Dyson and his move to Asia.
« Last post by Bob DeBilda on February 11, 2019, 13:26:27 PM »
Dyson's doing what he always does and that is look after number one.

He is keeping his research and development in the UK because he knows, and we all know, the best engineers, innovators, designers and inventors in the world are British. We are the best at manufacturing as well but with quality comes price which is why he has moved his manufacturing to Malasia - cheap labour. Look for Dyson quality to drop. He knows that which is why he is saying his future markets are in Asia where they are used to poor quality products.

Him moving his HQ to Singapore is nothing to do with Brexit. It's in line with most big company bosses ,purely selfish.

I have been proved right. Dyson wont care though as his market is now outside Europe and now in Asia.

You cannot credibly say that The Times or City AM are anything other than quality respected journalists who publish well-researched articles based on facts.
Thats the thing with The Times. If you read it daily you'll find it allows opposing views in opposing articles, in order to try and give both sides. In yesterday's paper (not read todays yet) I can pull two articles, one saying Brexit=great and one saying Brexit=sugar.
