    Oh ffs, this proves you never read anything -- I posted the following article a few pages back, but here it is again -- Read it this time : NOT TRUE : “40 EU TRADE DEALS WITH 70 COUNTRIES” Even the EU only claims deals with 36 countries are in force, and that's optimistic Brexit Facts4EU.Org once again debunks the lies around “EU trade deals”

    Yes, of course it is and that fact was mentioned yesterday at the same time as Remaniacs on here were spouting boll0cks about the immediate closure of the Swindon plant owing to Brexit. What beats me, Ian, is the utter stupidity of people who continue to believe 100% in the fairy stories put out by the ranked masses of the Remainiac media when their past ones have proven to be such unmitigated lies. One hopes that common sense will prevail and eventually win over the brainwashed minority

    Yes, that's correct, SmallFry, Turkey is indeed a member of the CU, yet Honda is not moving elsewhere in the EU and is also closing its plant there. So why have you Remaniacs constantly argued that staying in the CU is so very important for the UK?

    Nissan have already invested in Sunderland and they're pressing ahead with the next-generation Juke and Qashqai and its best-selling electric car, the LEAF. So I highly doubt they're going anywhere soon. NEXT!

    New labour market data from the ONS has revealed that in the last quarter of last year, 167,000 more people became employed. 2018 ended with 444,000 more people in work than a year before. The UK’s employment rate now stands at the joint-highest it has ever been since records began in 1971. Meanwhile almost 60,000 fewer people are relying on zero-hours contracts… The unemployment rate has plummeted too, with as low levels not being since the end of 1974. Unemployment fell by 100,000 over the course of the year, meaning every day 274 unemployed people found a job. Meanwhile, wages have risen again by 3.4%, and excluding inflation real wages are up by 1.3%. Despite Brexit, Britain’s jobs miracle continues… February 19, 2019 at 10:45 am

    And nothing to do with Brexit: Honda’s most senior executive in Europe was interviewed on the Today Programme to explain Honda’s decision to close its Swindon plant. Honda could not have been clearer: “This is not a Brexit-related issue for us.” --- (KiO-- " Sure, Brexit isn't the only factor, but it is one of the major ones and those saying it is a non-factor are full of 5hit, and anyone with a brain can see that. ) At a time when poorly-performing companies like Flybmi are only too keen to blame Brexit to cover up for their own business failings, Honda’s decision to explicitly rule out Brexit as a factor is particularly notable. Naturally this has not stopped many Remainers from spitefully gloating over the demise of thousands of jobs in their desperate pursuit of an ill-informed ‘told-you-so’ moment… What Honda did blame were the seismic shifts in the automobile industry in recent years, particularly the sudden move towards electrification, fuelled by the diesel scandal and generally poor demand. Turkey is also facing the closure of its Honda plant – despite being in a customs union with the EU… What has also been a major factor is the new EU-Japan trade deal, which removes a major incentive for Japanese car makes to manufacture in Europe as they will soon be able to export cars tariff-free directly from Japan. So much for the supposedly sacrosanct importance of geographic proximity in trade… February 19, 2019 at 9:44 am

    The Independent Group have made their opposition to Brexit one of their core positions. Maybe they should have checked the location of their registered address more carefully – the official address listed on their website is directly above one of committed pro-Brexit entrepreneur Tim Martin’s Wetherspoons pubs in Altrincham. They won’t get many Lib Dems joining up like that… UPDATE: A co-conspirator has pointed out that this particular Wetherspoons is actually called The Unicorn. Much like the new Group’s electoral prospects…

    The 'Brexit Party' has recruited a 100,000 members in just one week, Herbal. That's more members than your skint Lib-Dums currently have

    Remaniacs can't do that, Essjayess -- they hastily leap on anything that rightly or wrongly (usually wrongly) can be used as detrimental because of Brexit. In the meantime, SKY is reporting that Honda is reported to be planning to close their Swindon plant in 3 years time Remaniacs >

    KiO is usually the first race-baiter on any given topic. It's all the Left has.

    The DCMS Select Committee used pro-Remain campaign agency to ‘analyse’ activities of pro-Brexit media outlets under the pretence of uncovering the spread of disinformation online. The notoriously Remain-heavy committee employed the services of ’89up’ to carry out analysis of Facebook data in its new report. The Committee claims 89up is a consultancy firm, but it is really a campaigning and communications company with close links to the Remain camp… 89up was the sole communications agency for pro-Remain campaign group Best for Britain. They have also received considerable sponsorship from the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust, which has made multiple political donations to secure a second referendum. Is it any wonder then that all pro-Brexit Facebook pages and companies examined by 89up are described as ‘populist’, ‘right-wing’, ‘conspirational’ and ‘anti-establishment’..? Damian Collins’ committee appointed former Labour Councillor and 89up CEO Mike Harris to carry out the analysis. Harris has previously called the left wing backer of Best for Britain, Goerge Soros “the largest single donor in human history for the defence and strengthening of democracy.” In reality he funds campaigns to overturn the biggest vote in UK history, and Best for Britain has itself received multiple fines from the Electoral Commission. Relying so heavily on such a clearly biased firm to push disastrous reforms for tech freedom undermines the entire legitimacy of Collins’ narcissistic ‘Fake News’ enquiry.

    A new $400 million tech investment fund is set to be based in London with Abu Dhabi’s state investor Mubadala Investment Company partnering with SoftBank to provide funding for the launch of the new fund. The fund has already made a small number of undisclosed investments. All despite Brexit… The UK is currently a global capital for tech innovation and is streets ahead of anywhere else in Europe. Funds like these will be running a mile if Damian Collins’ disastrous recommendations are ever put into practice… February 18, 2019 at 4:30 pm

    I’m really sorry that I misspoke earlier on Politics Live – here’s my statement. pic.twitter.com/7csM95TFLo — Angela Smith MP (@angelasmithmp) February 18, 2019 The Independent Group’s largely smooth launch has quickly become overshadowed by a race row after Angela Smith had to stop herself from completing a sentence describing BAME people as having a “funny tinge”. Now Smith has posted a grovelling video apologising for “any offence caused” and saying she is “very upset” that she “misspoke so badly”. Not a good look when you’ve supposedly just left the Labour Party over its institutional racism…
