"JAPANESE car giant Honda has pledged its full commitment to post-Brexit Britain in a huge £200 million investment boost for Theresa May.

Honda’s Europe chief Katsushi Inoue said the company wanted to transform its Swindon plant into a “global production hub” as he unveiled plans to build a new five-door Civic at the factory."

So first you need to change the constitution, then you will need to lie big times to German to convince the majority that Germany will be better off outside the EU....then maybe Germany can have a referendum.

Just one more thing: Nobody in Germany blames the EU for the migration crisis. Germans blame Merkel and the German government for opening the border. That is where the blame belongs. It was a decision of Merkel, not Juncker. It was a German mistake, not one of the EU. Germans actually are blaming the right person for the right issue not blindly believing that all the bad comes form foreigners. That is what the Nazis did (Jews, gypsies, the Americans are to blame for weak Germany yadayadayada),....I am not going down that shitty road with the British. So, Goodbye, Auf Wiedersehen, you are on your road alone.

I'd only add that unlike Brits, the Germans can distinguish between refugees and European migration due to free movement. Precious few Germans have any problem at all with free movement. They do have a problem with refugees though - especially in the numbers that Germany has accepted. But it wasn't until the terror attacks that it became a topic forefront in their minds. Naturally.

Nonetheless, AFD is gaining ground on that alone. But they're far from "winning". Time will tell, but even if Merkel doesn't win the next elections, it's not likely to be the AFD that takes control. And thank god for that.

MERKEL'S WORST NIGHTMARE: Germany calls for Referendum as 'people want to be free of EU' | World | News | Daily Express

Plenty of other sources reporting similar stories if you don't like this particular one.



If you are so confident in your views quote them from the Times or a similar newspaper for grown ups
Todays Ukip express has a headline about a campaign to restore Farage even though he us not standing in the election for leader.
I assume you would deplore such an undemocratic act.

The Sun now Dick, hardly an improvement on you usual reading.
Honda must be confident that the UK will be able to retain free access to the rest of the EU and that they will still be able to employ anyone they chose from wherever tney come from.
Swindon has a high % of immigrants many who work at Honda.

HONDA swindon is already and has been for years a global production hub driven by exports of its cars manufactured there.
By the way it was actually announced in March, way before we even knew that there was going to be a referendum.
Not that I am suggesting that there is some news maniupulation going on.

I think we would probably have noticed.



Edit:Ah, I see from the informative link provided that it was two people from two far right parties, rather than "Germany".

It's the express, LIW. Somebody in some country somewhere has called for a referendum about something, and so that proves it. And so, it's only right to have "schadenfreude" against those despicable Germans.

It was way back in July,you can find it hidden among all the articles from grown up news papers that reported the opposite.

British diplomats are furious to have been found out 'secretly testing' what the EU would find acceptable post Brexit.

The EU pushed back when they discovered this.Now the Brits are spitting because they think EUROPE should help them formulate THEIR plan...?

Could this get any more embarrassing.?

Your link (humourously) delivers the following statement:

Page not found

Unfortunately, the page you asked for does not exist on this FT website.
You may like to see a list of topics, search or go to the homepage.

http://britishexpats.com/forum/data:...AAAElFTkSuQmCC
Why wasn't this page found?

We asked some leading economists.
Stagflation i The cost of pages rose drastically, while the page production rate slowed down.
General economics There was no market for it
Liquidity traps We injected some extra money into the technology team but there was little or no interest so they simply kept it, thus failing to stimulate the page economy.
Pareto inefficiency There exists another page that will make everyone better off without making anyone worse off. Supply and demand i Demand increased and a shortage occurred.
Classical economics There is no such page. We are not going to interfere.
Keynesian economics Aggregate demand for this page did not necessarily equal the productive capacity of the website.
Malthusianism i Unchecked, exponential page growth outstripped the pixel supply.There was a catastrophe, and now the population is at a lower, more sustainable level.
Neo-Malthusianism i To avoid unchecked, exponential page growth outstripping the pixel supply and leading to an inevitable catastrophe, we prevented this page from being conceived.
Marxism i The failure of this page to load is a consequence of the inherent contradictions in the capitalist mode of production.
Laissez Faire Capitalism We know this page is needed, but we can't force anyone to make it.
Monetarism i The government has limited the number of pages in circulation.
Efficient Markets Hypothesis i If you had paid enough for the page, it would have appeared.
Moral Hazard i Showing you this page would only encourage you to want more pages.
Tragedy of the Commons i Too many people tried to view this page.
Game theory i By not viewing this page you help everyone else get better pages. Mercantilism i The page is hosted by a foreign web server and is therefore banned to ensure the supremacy of our own software.
Trickle-down High taxes on content publishers prevented them hiring the person who would have written this page.
Speculative bubble The page never actually existed and was fundamentally impossible, but everyone bought into it in a frenzy and it's all now ending in tears. Socialism If you were to get the page you wanted you might get a better page than someone else, which would be unfair. This way at least everyone gets the same.
Behavioural economics i The influence of psychological factors caused you to act in a manner that would not be expected of a purely rational actor. Theory of the second best i The best outcome was unacheivable, so you have arrived here instead

Well at least the non-EU business should make Little England happy.
