Consequences Of Brexit [Part 8] Read First Post Before Posting

Groose

Mod Note: As we are getting rather tired of seeing reports about this. The use of the word Remoaners  is to cease. Either posts like adults, or don't post at all. The mod warnings have been clear.

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

A French company moves between 60 - 70 jobs to France. Jobs that have only been in the UK for 6 years.

 

How is this news?

How is this news?

They are also moving 200 other jobs to Geneva. I'm guessing that both moves are important news for those losing their jobs.

At what level of job loss does it become newsworthy?

60-70 Total jobs going back to France will aid the workers paradise Eurozone, which needs all the help it can get. In August 2019 the unemployment rate in France was 8.6%.

 

The UK had an unemployment rate of 3.8 % in August 2019.

Brexit - the gift that keeps on giving.

 

Spanish firm to create hundreds of jobs with new Tyneside trade park HQ

 

"A European utility contracting firm has chosen the final unit at a new Tyneside trade park as its new base of operations. Spanish-owned firm IQA Elecnor has signed a 10-year deal for premises at the £5m Infinity Park development in Monkton Business Park in Hebburn, which was completed just over a year ago.

 

The firm aims to develop the site into its regional headquarters, with plans to grow its headcount to a minimum of 300 over the next five years. "

Is this the start of the predicted 3 million jobs lost due to Brexit - as claimed by the Remainer hero Nick Clegg? 

 

If the UK loses 60-70 jobs per month due to Brexit, how many thousands of years will it take to get to 3 million?

Another classic from Liam Fox - the idiot who gave us the Brexit agreement will "be the easiest in human history!.

 

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1228119/liam-fox-brexit-news-bbc-news-radio-4-today-nick-robinson-uk-eu-free-trade-deal

 

However, Mr Robinson shot back, repeating that the UK will have less free trade with the rest of the world than we do in the EU “in the immediate aftermath” of Brexit.

The Tory MP did not agree: “No, and what we must be doing is to stop this ridiculous focus on trade as being, quote ‘trade deals’.

 

Can anyone explain how we trade internationally without trade deals (other than under WTO rules)?

Out of interest, how much have these one-in-the-hand 60-70 jobs, and the Total UK operation, been worth to the Exchequer over the last 6 years?

 

Do you think more, or less, than the two-in-the-bush IQA Elecnor lease and its 300 jobs over the next 5 years?

So it's funded by a grant - ie the taxpayer is paying. 

 

"Earlier this year, iwoca announced it had secured a £10m grant via the Capability and Innovation Fund with the aim of helping businesses improve lending or payment services to SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) across the UK."

 

Oh - and iwoca is London based 😎

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iwoca

 

"iwoca Ltd.is an online FinTech company based in London"

How many in the UK fishing industry do you think have lost their jobs since EU regulation?  How many whole towns have been decimated?

Common Fisheries Policy was introduced to stop overfishing no? To allow stocks to replenish. What's the major market for fish landed in the UK?

 

Either way, those jobs are gone and are not coming back, and the loss of that industry is a tragedy for those concerned.

 

How does that justify the disregard shown for further job losses in other industries?
