You hope.


I don't hope, but reality is looming very close. May has managed to put herself into a completely hopeless negotiating position, encapsulated in this article...

I can see one advantage of a no deal Brexit. It would very starkly and very quickly show the absolute madness of Brexit and have the UK clamouring to be let back in.

Very cynical move from those that pull the strings at Airbus. A threat to move all UK production in a no deal scenario. Where? China.

The 25000 employees can pick fruit. What a disaster Brexit truly is.

But we are going to be better off aren’t We?

The only cynicism is from brexshitters claiming that the economy wouldn't suffer (Or would even improve) post brexit

You're crystal ball gazing again there. I'll remind you  that the only economic predictions that have proved incorrect, thus far, have not come from the Brexit side.  ;)

So our European 'friends' would choose to stab the UK in the back rather than work out a sensible solution, would they? I believe this sort of bullying nonsense only reinforces why the best decision was to leave.
They'd, possibly, all be speaking German if not for our grandparents.
Better off? For sure (for richer OR poorer)

I don't see Europe stabbing us in the back, we decided to leave and Airbus have done their risk assessment which suggested they may build wings elsewhere to keep them competitive. You can read their report its very straightforward. http://www.airbus.com/company/worldwide-presence/uk.html#Economy

Would be a disastrous loss for us to lose aerospace business.
