    Yup -A CEO of a company employing 1000+ people.

    Do leavers think their 'belief' trumps his business expertise.

    I expect they do

    “Similarly, tariffs on exports, both in and out of Europe, present issues for us, as a business that brings products in and out of Europe almost daily. For instance, we transport food produce out of the EU. Any hold ups at port will be costly to this operation and could result in rising costs to consumers and shelf life of products.

    And remainers can't read

    If you read the article in full rather than selective quotes he says


    "It is the uncertainty that is damaging UK businesses, not the concept of Brexit itself."

    Wrong -that sentence is the end of a paragraph about stockpiling. it is not the conclusion of the article

    This:
    Similarly, tariffs on exports, both in and out of Europe, present issues for us, as a business that brings products in and out of Europe almost daily. For instance, we transport food produce out of the EU. Any hold ups at port will be costly to this operation and could result in rising costs to consumers and shelf life of products.

    is an example of a permanent increase in costs. not temporary uncertainty

    `Businesses want certainty, says Essex business leader'

    Information is easy to absorb - cutting out all the blather and might/maybe chatter is a little more tricky.

    You've hit the nail on the head...... I can see how you arrived at your erroneous conclusion.

    no doubt yellowhammer is 'project fear to you'

    that awfully clever and honest Mr Gove said so

    I suspect that you can't as, if you read the article (that you posted to support your viewpoint) carefully and slowly you might actually see the point is not erroneous, but I can see that it suits your purpose to ignore the actual words of the quote and to try to twist them back to your agenda.

    No quite obviously not.

    If Yellowhammer is an unbiased / impartial exercise is a different question.

    I suppose he should have had 1000+ votes on June 23rd then instead of just the one vote and leaving it to the non-CEO plebeians to decide. :rolleyes:
