I know very little about the British auto industry? I know more than most. Little opposition? Didn’t Germany and France and Italy and the US make cars? The cars you mention did not rely on pre-war engineering. I am not living in the past. (Do you know what year it is today?) I am answering your comment when you said no one wanted British cars and you twist it round to imply I am living in the past when I answer. A typical Remaniac retort.

Name me a real car, as you call them, in the same budget category as a Marina or an Allegro. And a Hillman Hunter won a World Cup Rally. British engineering at its best.

I stand by what I said: British cars were sought after and exported all over the world. Your comment was wrong and you cannot justify it except with snide digs. Another Remaniac tendency.

I must admit that I loved the 3 morris mini's I had and only stopped buying them when they changed the model into what it is now.

State of the art engineering at the time. Rally/race winner, a car for all, but don't tell EMR it was British.

Living in the past , a brexit addiction.

His wages are stagnant because there are too many Europeans after the job. His rent is increasing because if he doesn’t like it another European will take the room. Where does that leave him? He is going home to Italy because he might as well have nothing amongst his family than nothing here. I would not like to tell you the impression of the UK he is taking back to Italy. Willing to live like that? Who told you they are willing to live like that? Who? You people just do not know what you are talking about. Ahead in life? Read what I have just posted. You Remainers are crazy trying to justify the absurd.

There's a 4-bedroom house being rented near me where each bedroom has 2 single beds and the kitchen has 2 double freezers and a large fridge. The 8 British students living there pay £600 per month between them, and each student has an individual contract with the letting agency. Yet if migrants were 8 to a house, there'd be comments made.

It is their decision to put out a tender on the production of the passports. They do NOT have to do that. They COULD just give the contract to a UK firm.
But hey, let's blame the EU ....

It helps him rationalise his belief system Annetje & EMR.

Remind us when they went out of business.
I bet you still get upset whenever you look at our coins and realise it's not pounds shillings and pence.
That we use kilos and litres and not pounds and pints.

But they are probably Brits as is the letting agent and the house owner so that's ok as far as Cape and la man are concerned.

"Free trade" is only interesting to the UK when it's lopsided in the UK's favour. This isn't a UK company, even worse, it's European (the enemy). Ironic.

Then, there's the whole purpose of it to begin with... A "symbol" of independence. Although the UK could always print blue passports. No reason why not. It doesn't need to leave the EU to get blue passports and make a "monument" of perhaps the single most damaging political act ever. It's laughably ironic.

And the hardliners blood pressure just keeps going up, as reality continues to sort this all out for them. It's remarkable to watch, because it was all so predictable. Ironic, innit?

:nod: :nod: :nod: Yep, Foreigners aren't entitled in his mindset.
The only reason for their presence in the UK should be as migrant labour, working like the former S.A. internal native population, under the Pass Laws.

An individual contract with the letting agency? Now step over into the real world of immigrant European workers and you will see that one person, usually a European immigrant, has the contract and he sub-lets to ten and more fellow Europeans. That is the real world. I am telling you how Europeans tell me they are living and you tell me how nice everything is just because some students are living near to you in a house with contracts from a letting agency. Jesus, how can I talk to you? I am telling you what Europeans are telling me, do you understand? What European has told you they are willing to live like a pig in a tiny windowless room for £500 per month? You talk to me about each room with two single beds and a kitchen with 2 double freezers and not any old fridge but a large fridge? Jeez, talk to him someone…tell him what it is like in the real world for an unskilled European worker here.

The houses they live in are substandard. You are trying to say I am what, xenophobic, that if your 8 students were immigrants there would be comments made? Typical Remainer answer. You know nothing about how they live.

Again, a typical Remainer remark. You take another dig at British industry and are found to be wrong and you then resort to snide remarks.

Ford Cortina.....


And a Hillman Hunter won a World Cup Rally. British engineering at its best.
Actually, the Hunter won the London-Sydney Marathon Rally, which inspired the two World Cup Rallies in 1970 and 1974.

The Ford Escort Mk2 1800 was the basis of a very successful rally car, and the Mini Cooper too.

I don't know of any European that lives like a pig in a windowless room for £500 per month in a substandard house, but I'm not doubting it happens.

Please remind us how many British owned car producers there are.
Please remind us what happened to the British car industry.
Facts are not snide remarks , living in the past is however a common Brexiter characteristic.

La mans "British engineering at its best" went out of production in 1979.

Maybe thats when his clock stopped.
