Not quite as damaging as it might be.
So that's OK then.
What a mess.
...And just remember, those who have caused the damage and brought the UK to its present state, will be long-gone when the impact hits home.

But, by way of a public information function, in case anyone's not seen it, this is on the Eurotunnel site

You see ? Brits do get something for their £33M His Highness Mr. Grayling decided the UK taxpayer needed to pay out ...

The biggest change, the number of white faces.

It seems the French customs at Calais are into a Brexit rehearsal since 1 few days to show the French Government they are not prepared for Brexit.
Yesterday there were queues all the way into Belgium.
Eurostar from Paris also under attack.
At least, it will show what it means to take back control ...

Why don't you explain? You've just made a statement, not related it to brexit.

BMW have said they will move Mini production to Holland or Czech if there is a hard Brexit. They've explicitly said that. Do you have a conspiracy theory for that too?
No, they haven't said that. Why do you feel the need to make this sort of stuff up? #projectfear2

Interesting article, especially this bit:
But the UK ranks highest among all member states for people who agree that their country faces a better future outside the EU – though the gap between those who agree (44%) and disagree (43%) is tiny.
Looks like Brits are still quite optimistic and bullish about their freedom.

The quote:
Asked if this could mean BMW moving out of Cowley, he told Sky News: “We at least have to consider it because we cannot absorb 10% costs on top of it.”
Having to consider moving is obvious, it is vastly different than explicitly stating they will move".

Ultra brexiters force UK into no deal, the packing cases will be ordered in Cowley before you can say " Smogg "...

Your arguing semantics now? Why can't you accept you got Japanese car makers 100% wrong instead of equivocating every single press release.

Look forward to an explanation of the 80% drop in auto industry investment. Nothing to do with Brexit I suppose, just happens to coincide with the vote and the subsequent actions from the industry.

The difference between "at least have to consider it" and "explicitly stated they will" is more than semantics. I'd consider moving back to the US again, but I'm not stating explicitly that I will.

You're the one making the assertion, it's you that needs to make the explanation.
