Looks like a lot of the Honda workers aren't happy with Justin Tomlinson MP. Once to watch come the next GE.

Thank you, most of it wasn't actually my idea, I just added the word Gaping. Most of the credit should go to Cuellar.

They - all businesses - won't leave?

Ascertained how...

I make me laugh with such hollow talk of faux-ascertainment. It was not ascertained!

Copying this over because it was at the bottom and I'm interested in a response:

It'd be easier to accept that argument if brexit wasn't already used as an easy excuse by company bosses for either their own failure or tough decisions they'd get the blame for.

Would that still be the case if Brexit weren't happening? I thought Brexit was going to usher in a new era of transparency? What you're saying now seems to be that it isn't going to do that at all.

It did occur to me when I was reading about Flybmi going bust and they were citing brexit as part of the reason, when a company goes down they're going to try and blame anything other than their own mismanagement. I have no idea whether or not Brexit had anything to do with it in this particular instance, but in general, I wouldn't think some corporate slime coughing up a load of excuses is a particularly trustworthy source of information.

FlyBMI have had it coming for a while. They’ve been struggling for about 10 years. Brexit probably didn’t help though.

I do resent companies like theirs continuing the carry on of everything being alright on the surface while beneath the legs are thrashing to keep their head above water. Something dishonest after a certain threshold is reached. When you read that they were still selling tickets so soon before, having no intention of honouring them , that's unethical.

Fortunately the tickets I saw to Munich were so fucking expensive I would have gone nowhere near them.

A colleague pointed out that the margins in aviation are pretty miserable, so it only takes a few people to decide to hold off buying tickets until the government tells us what international travel arrangements are going to look like come April for a few to go out of business. The badly managed ones, no doubt, and maybe they would have gone anyway... Ruling out No Deal would go a long way to reducing the uncertainty and the financial casualties that come with it, but your hardcore Leavers are never going to accept that so why bothe

And beyond April, perhaps we'll see this carry-on used an excuse to avoid any attempt to reign in the huge effective subsidies that aviation enjoys.

A bit off topic, but are NDAs actually enforcable? Eg if one party has broken the law (or even statutory regulations), they can't gag another party, that's perverting the course of justice. And anyway you can't contract someone to act illegally.

I guess we'll find out when they publish their paper later in the week.  Given that they're comparing the results of their modelling "to a level not far off that at the depths of the last recession", it's less easy to claim they're pulling big numbers out of thin air.  100,000 is a lot of people's lives to fuck up, and it's all so unnecessary.  I'm no proponent of secession, but I wish the poor bastards had voted their way out of the poxy UK before all this came along.

Well I don't think they are pulling them out of thin air, I would just like to know what particular industries could suffer the most losses for e.g.

The absolute fucking state of the circles remainers are spinning themselves in with Honda is hilarious

So when CEOs say they're doing something because of Brexit, or not beacause of Brexit, it's always because of Brexit?

Who’s the Honda Vice President and why must we take them at their word?
