Reg, I'm sure this is more in relation to the trade deal from Feb 1st. Wink

Is that the one Liam Fox negotiated with the Faeroe Islands?

Well JT got 30K from Wonga for Supermarine... and Buckland highlighted that investing in slightly iffy film companies was a way of offsetting some $ away from HMRC, so others may have followed his example of supporting the Britsih film industry.

I say the last bit because there are local filmmakers struggling away in a local micro industry, who could do with some support.

I wouldn’t imagine that the views of an MP in Swindon get a great deal of traction in Honda’s boardroom. Very bad news for the town, to state the bleeding obvious - but at least we’ll be self-governing (by MP’s who still won’t be relevant in boardrooms) to take the edge of the implosion of the economy.

I think before jumping to conclusions we should wait for the official statement.

Car sales though have declined massively- and with the new Japan trade deal signed with the EU I guess building in Japan more cost efficient. Interesting to note they are also closing their Turkey plant and are not relocating anywhere else in Europe

No news about their factory in Slovakia that is actually in the EU though? Unless I’ve missed it

I’m waiting for you and your accolites to arm yourselves with buckets and march ‘Jarrow’ style the length and breadth of this sceptred isle shaking said buckets in town centres to raise money for those being made redundant. You have three years to sort this out. After all it was mighty fine for those miners back in the ‘80’s to come to Swindon and do the same.
