Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

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.

It must be some kind of record?   We've gone a whole 24 hours plus on this thread without anyone posting (moaning).  Well I'll start you all off for the day. 

 

Some of you aren't going to like the fact that Nissan are happy with the UK's Brexit deal with the EU & that they're here for the long term, with thousands of jobs, both at the Sunderland plant & ancillary industries secured.  

 

"Japanese car maker Nissan has told the BBC its Sunderland plant is secure for the long term as a result of the trade deal reached between the UK and the EU.

 

It said it will move additional battery production close to the plant where it has 6,000 direct employees and supports nearly 70,000 jobs in the supply chain."

Despite Project Fear postings, hundreds of pages back & months ago the when some here predicted that Sunderland would be an example of a post Brexit, unemployment abyss. 

 

No doubt we'll be treated on here to baseless conspiracy theories for  Nissan carrying on trading?  I'm looking forward to "Well they've been promised millions of secret Govt money just to stay" or "Well the Govt are going to scrap all the labour laws, so even if someone loose an arm on the production line, they'll be given a sticking plaster & told to get back to work." 

 

There you go, I've started you off.  I'm sure many will come up with more imaginative reasons why Nissan are happy to keep manufacturing in Sunderland? 

 

Off you go, have a nice day.  Looks the workers of Sunderland will be having a rosy post Brexit future, much to the disappointment to many on here?

Pity they have recently sold of the Leaf battery plant to the Chinese who have not got the same commitment.

Thrilled they aren't going to close. Sunderland would have drifted into the dark ages, and it hinged on the  tariff free deal Boris got.

 

Just think, some people didn't want a deal!

Baseless theories, eh? Happy to oblige.

I very much doubt that anyone who's spent years warning about the consequences of Brexit, here and elsewhere, wanted  to see them come about. The whole point of warning against them -and of voting Remain for those who could- was precisely to avoid the ongoing bin fire, that is only just getting started now.

 

To think how many on here wanted no deal or WTO 🙄

 

Johnson pushed for Canada instead. So Canada is what you have, and the new standard for freight customs clearance. 

 

Carry on winning 👍

I see crisps are now being held up crossing to NI.

 

This'll be one of the benefits of brexit - reducing obesity due to lack of supplies.

It is clearly good news, but it is hardly a Brexit win. It just isn't a loss. Brexit needs to show it can deliver things better than before,  rather than just maintaining things as they were. As yet there is no evidence of that.

 

Brexit is a long term project and a once in one hundred year pandemic isn't got to help to bring the benefits sooner. However,  if the UK hadn't decided to leave the EU then the likelihood is the British covid vaccine program wouldn't have delivered anywhere near as many vaccines to individuals as it has today.  The fact the British covid vaccine delivery program  is well ahead of the EU27 vaccine program is evidence that we can deliver things better outside the EU.

An opportunity for a crisp factory to be built in NI.

Good news Nissan has got confidence in the UK economy.  It’s said it will also move battery production from Japan to Sunderland possibly creating more jobs.

That is good news about the battery production because the move towards electric vehicles is a bigger threat to UK car manufacturing than the consequences of Brexit.

They should just nip over the border and get some Tayto ones.  They are generally better than most of the Walkers brands anyway.

Britain was free to pursue its own vaccine approval and policy within the EU.

I know Hancock tried a similar allusion,but it is a falsehood not a likelihood.

Not sure how British produced potato crisp export  problems have an effect on our obesity issues either.

And so were the EU27 bloc  who all decided not to pursue their own individual policy. The only exception seems to be Hungary who have just given approval to rollout the Russian vaccine.  Do you seriously believe Britain would have gone it alone with a vaccine program if we had voted to remain in the EU?

We didn't do schengen, the euro, load of other opt outs. Don't honestly know what the current lot would have done.
