1:19 pm today was the exact mid point from when the result that the Great British public had decided to leave the EU and the time 11pm March 29th 2019 that Democracy will be delivered.

Happy days.

Nissan becomes latest manufacturer to warn against hard Brexit
Carmaker says success of Sunderland operations enabled by frictionless trade with EU
By David Conn

Guardian, Thu 4 Oct 2018 06.00 BST Last modified on Thu 4 Oct 2018

The Japanese carmaker Nissan has warned the government that serious disruption will be caused to its huge manufacturing operation in the north-east of England if the UK fails to secure a deal with the EU that avoids a hard Brexit.

Carlos Ghosn, the chair of Nissan, has described its British operations as “a European investment based in the UK”, which employs almost 8,000 people, mostly at its factory near Sunderland. A further 30,000 people are employed in UK companies supplying Nissan.

Like the other car manufacturers that use the UK as a base for exporting to the EU, Nissan relies on rapid, “just in time” importing of millions of components from the EU every day, with no customs delays or tariffs.

A hard Brexit – if the government has not agreed to a customs union or common standards to allow free movement of goods – would result in trading with EU countries on World Trade Organization rules, which apply 4.5% tariffs to car parts and 10% to finished cars.

Colin Lawther, a Nissan executive, told the House of Commons international trade committee in February 2017 that tariffs would add £500m to the plant’s costs, which it might not survive, and that long delays of parts at borders would be a disaster for the operation.

In a statement to the Guardian authorised by the main board in Japan, Nissan said: “Since 1986, the UK has been a production base for Nissan in Europe. Our British-based research and development and design teams support the development of products made in Sunderland, specifically for the European market.

“Frictionless trade has enabled the growth that has seen our Sunderland plant become the biggest factory in the history of the UK car industry, exporting more than half of its production to the EU.

“Today we are among those companies with major investments in the UK who are still waiting for clarity on what the future trading relationship between the UK and the EU will look like. As a sudden change from those rules to the rules of the World Trading Organization will have serious implications for British industry, we urge UK and EU negotiators to work collaboratively towards an orderly balanced Brexit that will continue to encourage mutually beneficial trade.”

It is a sign of alarm at senior levels that Nissan has issued a statement, as the company has been restrained in public since the June 2016 referendum. Ghosn himself has issued repeated warnings that investment is on hold, saying in June this year that over the long term the Sunderland operation is threatened with decline .

In September 2016 he stated that the new Qashqai and X-Trail models which were due to be allocated to the Sunderland plant were on hold. Theresa May and the business secretary, Greg Clark, then met Ghosn and other Nissan executives to give assurances of financial support for the car industry, and for the strengthening of Nissan’s UK supply chain, which led to the new models being commissioned at Sunderland.

Shinichi Iida, minister for public diplomacy and media at the Japanese embassy in London, also told the Guardian that Japanese companies, of which there are 1,000 in Britain employing 160,000 people directly, are responding to Brexit by taking “risk hedge measures”.

Japanese financial institutions have already submitted applications to set up bases in European financial authorities such as Frankfurt and Amsterdam, he said, and some manufacturing companies are holding off future investment plans.

“If Japanese companies encounter problems in the UK I would not be surprised if they shift their balance towards their business operations on the continent,” Iida said.

Senior executives at Toyota, BMW and the PSA Group, which owns Vauxhall, have all warned this week that they are likely to reduce their operations in the UK in the event of a hard Brexit. In September Ralf Speth, chief executive of Jaguar Land Rover, warned the prime minister that its operations faced grinding to a halt and that “tens of thousands” of jobs in the industry could be lost.

She doesn't pretend to be anything that she isn't. Good to see her podcast is at the top of the charts. The likes of Aaron Banks and their funding streams need to be investigated.

What is it that you dislike about her then?

Well posing as a member of the public under a false name to get on a radio show is a little bit naughty. She’s got enough of a platform with her massive twitter following and podcast as you say. There’s no need to take airtime off people who want to have a say on this.

She had to resort to the subtafuge because Farage is refusing to answer her reasonable questions.


Why do you think that is?

All these Tory MPs calling for a change of leader.

Don't they know that Theresa May won the leadership contest fair and square 2 years ago.

How dare they want a change now, what part of democracy don't they understand.

If they just believed in Theresa more everything would be ok.

Very good article. It’s crystal clear that no deal will be able to improve on what we’ve already got. I’m fed up of being asked about Brexit here in Germany tbh. They genuinely don’t understand what’s going on and think we’ve lost the plot. From any rationale perspective it’s impossible to disagree.

She refuses to look at Remain funding.

She is also lauded as an amazing investigative journalist yet people seem to forget there are regular corrections issued for her articles.

Ha! I doubt they’re capable of taking their own advice.

Whatever you think of May, and whether you agree she’s made the right choices or not (I don’t), boy has that woman got some stamina and nerve. She’s continually riding out supposed leadership challenges and batting away the whining from the likes of Rees-Mogg, like water off a ducks back.

It’s hard not to give her credit for how she’s coping, especially with the petulant child-like Leavers in her own party.

But the big story is Leave.

Its Brexit and Trump - and Russia.
And Cambridge Analytica.
And ‘shorting’ the markets as the pound fell afterbRef night.

Its criminal investigations on the Leave side.
Foreign interference is illegal.

Nothing remotely similar on the Remain side.

You might even expect some prominant Leave types to end in in jail.

The truth will out.

And again, her claims get widely publicised. The retractions posted... not so much.

Wylie is lauded as a whistleblowing hero... yet Carole hasn't investigated precisely what he did with the data he had.

Foreign interference? Still remains ( pun intended ) to be proven. Certainly the "Russian twitter bots" argument has been destroyed.

Nothing similar on Remain side? Wasn't it 9m or so spent on government mailouts? Nobody seems to remember that.

What about the conduct of the Electoral Commission?

You're also saying there's nothing remotely similar on Remain side because nobody has been examining Remain claims that closely. You and I simply don't know - and no investigative journalist is looking.

The deal on the table as it stands must NOT be signed off. How can any serious politician in this country agree to it? I want out, but that monstrosity is infinitely worse than remaining in the EU. Whether you want to leave or remain is irrelevent with that fudged up mess, every single one of us are being sold down the river.

Its like having a phone contract that you can only terminate when the phone company agree. WTF.

The more i read of that stuff, the more i realise why May has micromanaged the whole process and why so many have resigned. She has created this by design.

Its like when we appointed Monk as manager. He said the right things, talked about playing the game we were used to and how he would continue it etc. But when push came to shove, he lacked the vision and reverted to type. We were relegated.
