    As the latest batch of large companies officially announce that they are to leave the UK(nothing to do with Brexit of course,just pure coincidence,after 30 odd years-eg.Honda),the people that work there and the Japanese ambassador to the UK have stated that it has everything to do with Brexit by the way,it has been suggested that people who voted for Brexit should lose their jobs first before others that voted to remain.Feelings must be running high between people, but i wonder how this would work.People that are willing to admit that they voted for Brexit are getting less and less and there is no way of proving anything. Interesting thought that people are now thinking this way.

    It has much to do with the changing market for cars, which is being driven (no pun intended) by the Green movement. That’s led to a decline in diesel sales, with the fuel being targeted for tax.  Which is one of the factors that gave rise to the gilets jaunes.

    The MD gave the excuse of electric cars in his poorly concocted interview, in which he said the complete opposite of what he said just after Brexit,when he was full of reassurances!The staff who work there are not at all convinced with this excuse, and along with the Japanese Ambassador to the UK have stated that the job losses are absolutely the result of Brexit!Sad really.

    This I fear is just the begining. If and when Brexit takes place can you imagine that the French and German manufacturers currently producing in the UK are going to stay when they have unemployment problems at home? Not just the automobile industry either, these two countries have fingers in many industries.

    BBC Newsnight had a feature on the show last week where they had uncovered over 500 companies that had already moved either their HQ or their operations or both from the UK to Europe since the result of the Brexit vote was announced.
