Are you sure? Are these people really to be trusted with decisions about our future prosperity? They sound **** clueless to me.

A Mini crankshaft crosses the channel more than once before its fitted into a car in Oxford? That should work well after Brexit.

Guinness is made in Dublin, taken to Northern Ireland to be bottled and then back to Dublin to be sold. How will that work in post Brexit Britain?

As I said - **** clueless and in danger of destroying this country for good.

Those examples you give....are they typical of most manufacturing industries in the UK, or exceptions to the norm, and why they stand out??

unfortunately the EU is all about inter-dependancy so most large scale manufacturing is split between various countries , the air bus is made in bits all across Europe and assembled in France , the euro fighter is the same as are most vehicles , no doubt in the short term we will suffer but I believe that we will recover and be stronger than we were in the EU , provided the other member states don't impose penalties to trade and the movement of capital and services .

Hmmmmm......you know, Germany's economy IS quite a touch bigger than the UK's, so from that standpoint it does kinda make a bit of sense.

Of course it does, it makes perfect sense, why wouldn't it. America first, he said it from very the start. Even Obama warned us, it's simple economics.

Anyway the last thing we need is a Tory government negotiating a trade deal with the US. Just imagine what they will do to "OUR" NHS.

If anyone had any concerns about losing sovereignty to the EU, you aint seen nothing yet!

Which national leader has NOT put the interests of the country he/she represents first??

If they didn't do that first and foremost then they wouldn't be doing their job.

Seeing as we're heading for a general election the Parties all seem to be very quiet. I suspect that the realise the public is a bit bored so they'll leave it to the final couple of weeks.

I wonder if the turn out will be low?
