But we will get our country back.

And Jacob Rees-Mogg says in fifty years everything will be tickety-boo!

Hi
Trust re-moaners to claim this is because of Brexit.

They are losing market share and taking everything back to Japan.

Hmm, not s sure about that. Did you listen to Nick Robinson interviewing this morning? Desperately trying to get a union man and an academic to say it wasn’t Brexit, but they wouldn’t play ball. The academic’s view was that without Brexit Honda were unlikely to dump 30 years of investment in Swindon.

The car industry is having a tough time, but the change in tariffs and access to markets will be a very unwelcome consequence of Brexit putting additional pressure on the industry.

Im not into Brexit or remain but not Rees-Mogg. Eton, Investment Bankers and the Rothschilds can only be trusted to look after them selves and their own.

I am sure those who voted to leave are very proud of themselves for taking away another opportunity ,and losing a decade for our children whist the country re-groups .
when there is no healthcare available for the mainly older and xenophobic voters who voted to leave , i trust they will take their suffering in silence

I'm sure everyone will have their opinion. I read somewhere that this is not a UK thing and that the trend is now for far-east car manufacturers to relocate back to their part of the world from all over Europe.

But, who knows.

For decades when ever anything went wrong it was blamed on the EU.
Now everything is put down to Brexit.
Both points of view a load of baloney.

Anyway the question of GB leaving the EU has already been decided in the Referendum with over half the votes for Brexit.
I suspect that should there be another Referendum [please No] the outcome would remain the same.

Britain is leaving the EU and everybody should look forward to fantastic new opportunities in the wide world: something this country has done exceptionally well for hundreds of years.

Yep, you are quite right. Not all to do with Brexit.

Whatever your view on Brexit, let no-one be in any doubt that the planned departure of this country from the world's largest trade partnership without any certainty about what happens next is weighing against (very heavily in some cases) almost every single decision about whether to invest or continue to invest here. Investment is about confidence and there is none of that about.

It's just a shame that 'Leave' broke the law in their referendum campaign and made scurrilous claims.

Have you moved your investment funds out of the UK OTC? If not, you should follow the example of the Leave leaders.

Both sides of the debate were economical with the truth. I did not believe much of what was said but still voted because UK is better out of an EU that is already showing signs of collapsing under its own weight.
I don't expect Brexit to run smoothly on Day 1 nor on Day 2 but thereafter the country will realise how wise this generation was to vote Brexit.

as you say OTC -put in this really bad position by the xenophobic older generation.

only the next fifteen years of recession to get through then -so well done for that.

forgive me if i am not forthcoming in my thanks .

second referendum -if only -i reckon a minimum of 68% would vote to stay if held again .

1. The EU are not going to give us any concessions. Why should they?
2. There is no majority for the current deal.
3. There is no majority for a "no deal" Brexit.
4. Eventually so many people are going to get fed up that we will get a second vote.

Otc (and greeners or anyone else) why do you think the the country will be better off out of the EU?

Having first hand seen the negative effect the original decision, and the current indecision, is having on business investment, I'd be interested to hear your views?

Molly,
When you have understood it, can you explain it to our government, because they seem clueless.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
