Its not Brexit, Bomb is selling stuff all over the place and consolidating the business jet operations as well.

Rather than purchase it, I am sure AB can add incentives for B to keep it in operation if a buyer cant be found. It seems like they invested 520 million pounds in the facility, so that adds a steep bump, let alone the IP.
such incentive would be for that facility to produce a new wing for the A320neo, they already make the nacelles and other neo parts, and get that variant selling a few more years.

Both AB and B need to face reality, with the engine market going the way it is, there arent going to be any new designs out for a long time, so the NMA and other concepts that require a new engine just aint gonna happen soon...

Probably been a plan since the C series got taken on by Airbus, and the Dash8 line got sold.

Soon there was BO, then BOM, onto BOMB . . . and then they went home for the weekend.

You just couldn't make it up.
Hopefully, no-one will follow their instructions
