The Japanese have warned that leaving without a deal will risk the Japanese stopping all UK investment and relocating, PSA have said that they will only allocate the next Astra model production to Ellesmere Port if there is a deal, Ford are threatening to move Diesel production from Dagenham to the continent in the event of a no deal and have already announced the closure of the engine plant at Bridgend, British Steel in administration and 5,000 direct and 10,000 related jobs at severe risk and a key strategic industry under threat of extinction mainly because EU based customers stopped ordering because of the threat of tariffs in the event of no deal, Airbus halting UK investment and having some wing functions open in Spain, UK blue passports now to be made in Poland by a Franco company and 170 jobs going when the Gateshead factory where the EU passports are made closes, billions of capital leaving London for overseas, assets relocated and funds moved.

So when will Johnson stop his ridiculous "out by 31st October do or die" mantra?

And all this without even mentioning the disastrous effect that a WTO no deal exit will have on our agricultural industry when instant tariffs of over 40% are placed on the majority of their exports?

He does, UK business dies...
