It wont happen - moving an organisation such as Airbus or Toyota would take years by which time things would have settled down


Alternately they may just be allowed to just wither on the vine. In the case of Airbus, for example, the last A380 wing has just been completed - so, what will happen to that UK based facility? Will they be offered work on a new Airbus enterprise? Somehow I doubt it.

Just checking, but are there any Leave voters on here that are still insisting they knew what they were voting for in 2016? A border down the Irish sea? Custom checks at Dover? Food price increases? Reduction in food standards?

Its a fallacy that most people didn't know what they were voting for - a border down the Irish Sea given the politics in Ireland it will be one country within 5 years. Leaving the EU always opened up the possibility of WTO terms and everything that goes with it - technology will speed up the movement of goods. Food prices in this country are all about competition hence why the Asda/Sainsbury merger got knocked back leaving Europe will have limited impact if any. Also there will other products that currently carry tariffs that will not. Food standards is a red herring just like a privatised NHS!!
Your job is to say to yourself on a job interview does the hiring manager likes me or not. If you aren't a particular manager's cup of tea, you haven't failed -- you've dodged a bullet.

What is currently wrong with our current food standards - has the government suggested a lowering of these or is just more remain scaremongering?

There's nothing wrong with current food standards. I just don't trust the Tories, especially the globalist headbangers and the race to the bottom, lunatic fringe.

So just scaremongering then - nothing concrete and your own bias against the Tories?

Come on Sal, you are still peddling the Myth.
Johnson and Cummings knew exactly what they were doing, both in terms of Brexit and the GE.
Cummings, although he appears to be a proper weasel, does know how to work the crowd and seems to have gauged the temperature of the electorate far better than anyone else and he's got Boris into the big chair.
Johnson, for now, does seem to be spending plenty, which will keep the electorate on side.

However, NOBODY, but Nobody, ever mentioned throwing the Irish under the proverbial bus and likely causing the North and South to join together.

Under a flag of Taking back control and making Britain great again, we may have started the process of losing N. Ireland and at some point Scotland, from The Union.

Someone will have to show me just where that was illustrated in the Brexit leaflet :CRAZY: :CRAZY:

Mike Pompeo confirmed that the US farming sector would insist on the inclusion of their food standards as part of any trade agreement. The EU have prevented this however, being on our own now means we can be bullied into it because Johnson is desperate for a deal.
I guess you could believe what Johnson says but unfortunately the truth is usually quite different. He states we could fall back on the Australia type deal with the EU which despite what he indicated was confirmed as no deal by the EU. It would also appear that Australia is trying to negotiate a new deal with the EU due to the severe restrictions on their current arrangement.

Fact
Frictionless trade will end. Confirmed by the government . Not sure where they will park 11,000 lorries per day at Dover whilst doing it but hey ho. Sal will tell us it will be alright and we just have to trust uncle Boris.
