Remaoners told us that there would be a great exodus of companies from the UK if Brexit happened. Well the latest company to commit to the UK is Nissan. They have announced that they will be pulling out of Spain and consolidating their operations in the UK with billions of pounds in investments and many new jobs.
Hmmm, so the UK leaves the EU and a major company decides to quit a EU country and INCREASE their investment in the UK. Gotta love project fear.
"Remoaners". And you accuse me of immaturity..? You've got some neck.
And we're not Remainers any more. We're now 'Rejoiners."
You can't campaign to remain in something you've already left, you moron.
As for Nissan......
The news articles I've read say that their current scenario is just one of several plans drawn up. Everyone knows that companies draw up a range of plans for every eventuality and choose the one suits most when the time comes. We have left the EU, but that is a case of BRINO. The full picture won't become clear until January 2021.
Example scenario: Renault have been looking at building the new Captur at Sunderland because the Sunderland plant is already adapted to manufacture those parts. They are now considering outsourcing this manufacturing to Nissan on their behalf at Sunderland for that very reason. Nissan wouldn't make the parts at their Spain plant because it would have to be adapted at great expense to make these parts. Making the Captur at Sunderland would be a sound business move that is in no way motivated by supporting Britain especially, much less Brexit. It's just cheaper for them to have the parts made there.
Given that the UK is, to all intents and purposes, still playing by EU rules and the government are promising a free trade deal to Nissan whatever the outcome next January, Nissan would be daft not to grab at that. And they're not daft.
Consider your comment debunked.
