    Great news Nissan have decided to stay in UK.
    Apparently the reason why is because we the taxpayers will foot the bill for any additional costs to Nissan if the EU decide to increase import duties on cars.
    If this is true it will /should open the flood gates to all other manufacturers.

    It is good news 7000 jobs secured

    there may or may not have been some agreement on tariffs ??

    how much did the tax payer have to pour into the banking bail out ? or hand out to countries caught up in this Euro caper ?

    That was during one of the most devastating financial crashes since the depression. Is that what you are saying Brexit is?

    If the EU should be foolish enough to impose import duties on UK-made cars like Nissan, then we would, of course, retaliate. This would cause the EU manufacturers (BMW, Mercedes, VW, Renault, Citro├źn and others) to lose a considerable number of sales. This will cause real unrest, and thus, I foresee post-Brexit, the trading terms will be very similar to now. It is only the idiots like Juncker and Hollande who want to shoot themselves in the foot!

    Dont forget the "Walloons", after many years of Negotiations Canada has had to retreat from the EU with its tail between its legs,

    We could suffer the same fate.

    They'll want to make an example of us. But it will likely backfire.

    i think Junker and hollande's shots may end up in other people's feet since neither will suffer the consequences of their stupidity

    no

    what I am saying is that the U.K has had to bail out the bankers at great cost to the tax payer, over an financial crisis that they were probably responsible for ??

    and the remoaners are whinging about some deal over tariffs that may or may not have been done with Nissan ?

    I see Tony Bliars getting on the bandwagon. If it wasn't for him I doubt there would have been a Brexit.

    Without the sweeteners - do you think these companies would still invest?


    A weaker UK with less bargaining power will require a lot more sugar.
