Another foreign car manufacturer showing faith in a post-Brexit UK economy:

Here's a different headline about the investment which is required to bring the site up to other Toyota o/s standards

The final paragraph sums things up nicely.

I wouldn't argue that the Ofcom's DSR has nothing to do with it, however it still shows a confidence in the future demand for Openreach products.
In the wider scheme of things, it's another 1500 UK jobs that fly in the face of the doom mongers' forecasts of huge job losses due to Brexit.

Indeed. Ultimately those jobs reflect demand, whether imposed on them or not.

Fixed. DCR = Digital Communications Review

They're going to hard sell the propaganda to the contrary, but Ms May will accept the same deal as Norway and Switzerland. There really isn't any other choice

There's plenty of options. They could pretend we're miles away and give us a deal like Canada with 98/99% free trade but no single market. We're getting out just in time, as don't the rules change on April 1st and the EU members have to vote on whether a country can leave?

First thing Mrs May is going to do is to ban the import of shredded cheese and vegetables from the EU, she's going to make Britain Grate again.

Of course there is; in fact that isn't a choice at all. Both Switzerland and Norway accept free movement of people, we won't sign up to that.

Inflation figures out today....

They seem to show that the expected rise is caused by the fall in value of the pound on the international market making fuel and imports more costly....

The apocalypse starts here....

Over to you, Mr Carney. Perhaps we can begin to get back to some normal level for interest rates.

No good deed goes unpunished!

No amount of anxiety can change the future. No amount of regret can change the past.

I'm one generation too far removed from being a bogtrotter, but I'm proud to be British. Roll out the Blue Passports :)

Apocalypse my arse.

Inflation's back to about where it should be. The pound's about where it should be.

Who really wants to belong to a club which punishes those that want to leave?
