  1. Brexit

    1/5 is not a lot. Good business is by nature flexible in a good economy, but if there is economic uncertainty short to mid term, they will look elsewhere, if the return on UK investment turns out to be a lemon. Nothing is guaranteed. Whatever the politicians might have you believe. It's never a done deal till we've properly turned the corner and only if things are consistently looking up (5-10 years). It's not scary, it's just fact. Anyone who says it's all going to be fine, presumably signs up to the possibility that it could go either way, be tough, but in the long run things will improve right? So where's the alleged scare mongering? Some are happy to take any potential hit on the chin, others not do much.... Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz

    Too easy.... 800000 in a population of 65+mill is small beer compared to countries with a few 100 million or the odd billion as its market....800000 would be absorbed across these quite easily.....the world is a very big place, even though we may want to isolate ourselves from it.

    I wouldn't be so sure.... I wonder how the BRICS get their BMWs etc, never mind those closely behind them..... Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  4. Brexit

    I agree with you- hence I didn't put an actual number on what it meant.... Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  5. Brexit

    If this were to pass, others on here have previously spoken for the country advising a 20-30 percent economic loss would be acceptable in the medium term, i.e. For a few years- a bit like austerity...... Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  6. Brexit

    There is this thing called free markets, of which the UK is just one. If car manufacturers in Germany haven't already put in place strategies to mitigate potential losses from the UK (by looking to other larger economies and rapidly developing ones for growth), they frankly deserve to make losses. My point is they will change their business model to rely less on the UK in the short to medium term - any sensible business that is. Whether this is in the form of moving some or all production elsewhere, seeking alternative markets, having satellite or sister plants else where (as well as in the U.K.), etc etc. Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz

  8. Brexit

    Followed by populism, economic austerity, nationalism, jingoistic attitudes, isolationism and the 2nd works war.... Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  9. Brexit

    Sadly, yes. Make no mistake, if the current incumbents of the Westminster asylum (Government, can't sort it - we will unceremoniously crash out. As sure as eggs are eggs. I'd expect that is what businesses will prepare for. Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz

    Indeed, but some still harbour ambitions ..... Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  11. Brexit

    Laws and times change. Catalonia has always been part of Spain, in modern times regardless of what Catalonians might think history has given them. Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  12. Brexit

    The EU referendum called by the UK parliament - again state sanctioned what ever the outcome. Not so, Catalonia... Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  13. Brexit

    No they didn't. What passed in history doesn't overwrite new laws made in the meanwhile. I'd like to see Scotland try a Catalonia and see how swiftly it's dismissed - with as much Government prejudice as the Parliament of the day seems necessary. If you think the forces and law and order is there only to protect the citizens, sadly you are mistaken Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  14. Brexit

    What happened in Spain was not a sanctioned democratic vote, regardless of the ensuing action taken by the Government. I know we are in a post truth era, but dragging the EU and the Brexit vote/Scottish vote into this is a conflation too far Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
