BmW now repeating what Airbus said this morning.

May needs to pull her finger out and tell the right wing Tories to F off and very soon too, otherwise she might be presiding over mass unemployment next year.

For every one person these companies employ, they reckon on average another 5 to 6 people are employed elsewhere in the supply chain.

It doesn't matter though, because all of those free loading benefit claiming job stealing illegal immigrants will be gone, so those fine British people being laid off will simply walk into a job vacated by johnny foreigner.

Me neither...although TBH that's a very long article & the whole thing is a bit beyond me.
The cynic in me sez much of the "insider trading" will be people being very savvy, and a small proportion being very slimey.

There will no doubt be a very few already wealthy people who will make a killing from it whilst ordinary people end up paying for it.

Fwiw I don't see it like that. This is more like manipulating events to defraud an entire social enterprise, with the perpetrators reaping reward from the damage caused.
For example, "Breaking & Entering" isn't working smart, it's (also) just damaging someone's property to take their stuff for yourself.

I was referring to Duke's post abiut wealthy people making a lot of money. I'm not debating the ethics of it, because everyone's ethics differ....the law applies to everyone. They've either broken the law or they haven't.....OR, as is occasionally the case, they've circumvented the law, in which case new laws will be drawn up.
Which is pretty much the way it's always been.

Johnson and all the other Brexiteer Tory cnuts are not fit for office. This is Johnson's latest comment on the subject.

Enjoy having a job and money whilst you still have it all.

Asked about corporate concerns over a so-called hard Brexit, at an event for EU diplomats in London last week, Mr Johnson is reported to have replied: "**** business."

Interesting view considering it’s business that pays for the Conservative Party.

The Tory party's only interest is itself.

I see Gove has had a hissy fit today about May's plans for customs in the future. It's about time she told the hard line Brexit mob to do one. She is supposed to be in charge, not them.

We may end up not making anything at all if the Tories get this wrong.

The EU are laughing at us. The exit is going to be painful and those who voted to leave will insist that Europe is to blame.

We didn't plan for this. We rushed into it. We should have spent 2 years preparing before evoking Article 20.
