There is only so much money to keep the large companies. I guess a lot depends how much is gained from selling off the banks the Government acquired.

The Be-leavers keep believing all is well and there are no consequences.

Even if we just go back to now, it comes to the same thing. We are just paying in by paying companies directly, instead of being a part of the European community and reaping the benefits that way. We are running to stand still.

And all those EU "laws" will be British laws soon.

And EU immigration will likely stay the same in terms of numbers, at the very least, and just be called something else like "getting a work visa."

What's the point?

Except for the NHS, why would you go through the pain of getting a work visa for the UK when you can earn double by going to the US, Canada, Australia and many other countries. The NHS has far too many European workers for s sustainable model under Brexit. Too many hurdles have be implemented to encourage UK youngsters to go into nursing.

looks like Nissan didn't cost any money

A senior Nissan Europe executive, Colin Lawther, said the company had received "no special deal".

Azevedo eh? Sounds a bit foreign, so I guess the UK government won't be setting too much store in his pronouncements. In fact, as head of the WTO he also comes across as one of the elites, as well as possibly being an expert, so definitely not one to take a lot of notice of in government circles and highly dubious as a source of comment for Leavers in general, I'd have thought.

Isn't the country supposed to be being run by ordinary, down-to-earth, honest-to-goodness, hard-working types these days?

Yet another remoaner fallacy bites the dust.

Can't be many left now.

Another fantasy of yours Dick proof you do not keep up with events. Nissan are in discussion with the UK government who will compensate them if we exit the EU free trade agreement.
Nissan cannot lose out but the UK taxpayer could.
Hopefully the UK will see sense and reach agreement to continue tarrif free trade with the EU.
