I’ve had, in the way of British cars, an MGB, a Jaguar 420! Two Bentleys, an MGC, an AC428 and three Land Rovers (real ones).
The Jaguar was a super car. The test were more or less badly put together,impossible to source spares from the manufacturer, had no back up and were fabulous fun. I wouldn’t buy a car again though that was made and spared in the UK and that’s without going into details of how long you have to wait for an MG axle when the factory is on yet another strike. God bless the British motor industry but for me it’s had its best day and it’s last.

I should have thought the point was obvious. As you say the Japanese will not be here much longer, so there will be ready-made car factories standing idle and skilled workers unemployed.
We are told that countries around the world are queuing up to have trading agreements with us, so the markets are ready and waiting. Isn't this what Brexit is all about?

Indeed, you’ll buy their cars and they’ll buy your whisky.

The point isnít obvious since Brexit or Brexin Japanese cars can enter EU with minimal or no tariffs. And why should Brexiteers suddenly want to take up car making?

Honestly. I actually agree with some of your underlying point but this nonsense damages your case

Look on the brightside....no more hold ups on the A417...... and the opportunity for retro Allegros to flood the market !

Anyway, here's that nice Mr Gove offering us his usual thoughts and promises......

That David Cameron’s a clever chap though. Imagine thinking up a wheeze like Brexit in order to achieve the disintegration of the Labour Party. You played Quite a good long game there old beano!!

Why ever not? It's meeting the Brexiteer promise of exporting to the world once we have broken the shackles of the EU.

The motor industry is one of our proudest industries, and JLR have shown that with Indian management it can still thrive.

We already have a trade deal with the Faroes and with suitable government subsidies we can probably sell them at least two cars every year.

My case? My case is that Brexit is a crock of excrement. I haven't seen anything yet to damage that.

In particular no #brexshitter has been able to articulate a single benefit of #brexshit . Not a single one. After three years.

Yes they have, you just haven't listened prefering to denigrate those you disagree with, and childishly too with stuff like #brexshitter. Oh the intellect! Still this is your playground, don't fall over and graze your knee.

I suspect it's only a response to "Remoaner".
Why don't you arrange a deal to ban both?

Well, in all fairness, one could draw attention to the fact that if the exiters excremented at the same rate of production that the remainers cried havoc, leaving the EU would probably be a slippier path than either group could imagine, even in their most dung ho moments.

We had such a deal here once upon a time, which lasted quite a while, until it didn't. The deal's the same - if I don't see "remoaner", "bretard", ect ect for a week then I will, again, stop the "#brexshitter".

Wait til they start calling you a nonce then run away. That's fun.

Anyway, If Goves comments are accurately reported, then cheaper food, another leave promise goes up in smoke. Those benefits we're just not listening to, eh Optimistical?

How about the Ins and the Outs then?
Those who favour elements of rum, sodomy and the lash can equate with the Naval and Military Club while the rest can examine the consequent styles of exit and entry.

Only if you think that "UK Politics" (the title of this thread) will cease to be a thing on that day. There was a specific #brexit thread, wasn't there, that got killed off some time ago?
