    Airline Flybmi ceases operations

    "The airline has faced several difficulties, including recent spikes in fuel and carbon costs, the latter arising from the EU's recent decision to exclude UK airlines from full participation in the Emissions Trading Scheme.

    "Current trading and future prospects have also been seriously affected by the uncertainty created by the Brexit process, which has led to our inability to secure valuable flying contracts in Europe."

    I'm sure quitters will be straight on here talking about 'short term pain' being worth it, but assets easily lost are very hard to regain!

    Yep 'tis true...the British company, which flew 17 regional jet aircraft on routes to 25 European cities, says Brexit has been a major factor in its demise.

    Just more brexit misery adding up along with car companies, aerospace, the economy, the high street etc. The cowardly deniers will keep their heads buried and try and blame summat else. We haven't actually had the real thing yet and the soft twats are frothing at the mouth for a no-deal Brexit.

    Thick as sh it.

    Brexit news....
    "One of the most striking things about what has unfolded since the UK's decision to leave has been the remarkable solidarity from the EU.

    "Despite many attempts to bilateralise issues or to divide the 27, the solidarity has been strong and resolute and those who think it will break at the last moment are in for a nasty surprise."

    Brexit news.....

    "I would probably say 80 to 85% of people arriving from Sri Lanka are coming on fake passports," she said. "The only means is through fake passports. It's big business and a risky business."

    Ms Seevaratnam believes that Brexit could provide job opportunities for the hundreds or even thousands who are coming on fake passports from Sri Lanka each year.

    Ironic that the foreigner hating brexiteers are creating a workforce vacuum ready to be filled by illegal immigrants.

    Not true, as a current EU member the UK is not excluded, that of course could change.

    So why are no other UK based airlines folding? They all pay the same taxes & fuel costs.

    Woolworths,Zavvi,MFI,Focus,C&A.Comet,JJBsports,Barratts,Blockbuster,Phones4u,BHS and many more, yep, all due to Brexit? The main reason is greed, greed from landlord's, greed from shareholders, greed from councils, greed from multi national online retailers who dodge paying their fair share of tax, greed from the consumers who feed the online retailers for tat they think they need, just because it is newer than last weeks, but not all about Brexit.

    Brexit news....

    Aviva asked a London court to approve the transfer of assets totalling €9 billion, saying the uncertainty from Brexit was “intensifying” as it joined other insurers and banks triggering contingency plans.

    Aviva asked Judge Richard Snowden for permission to move the life-insurance policies held by non-UK policyholders to its Irish subsidiary. The insurer wants to make the move to prevent the risk that payments may be held up if the UK goes through a hard Brexit.

    Aviva.
