    You know, if you're only going to use sources that are a month old you're going to be left looking pretty desperate:

    A story from today, as opposed to one from Sep 30

    When we do finally cut off ties does that mean you'll piss off?

    Actually... It's subsidising companies that would benefit from the EU after we leave. (With the money saved from EU membership)

    And since we were net contributers... We in theory, should still save money.

    At least know what you're talking about before you start a thread.

    The old story was deliberately chosen to provide context for the cartoon. You know, Brexiteers generally don't have a very good memory.

    That stands in direct contradiction to the story I posted. So who's more believable? The CEO of a leading global automotive alliance under pressure to keep his business profitable, or a shady business secretary desperately trying to avoid both a chain reaction and admitting a precedent for a major employer being paid off by the government to not leave?

    Probably not. That would be too spectacular to watch to not comment.

    Oh, so you also think there's money involved? A very healthy, fair, and sustainable way to do economic policy then!

    In theory. Too bad your economy is tanking.

    But people keep giving him what he wants, what he craves: a reaction! Of course he won't piss off anywhere whilst that keeps on happening, though I've noticed that the number of replies to his threads keep diminishing.

    Is it? Really? I'll just leave this here:

    Pay particular attention to the figure that illustrates how the level of most recent growth is equal to or better than anything experienced the year pre-Brexit and faster than predicted before any Brexit vote.

    And with that, my time entertaining mindless trolls comes to an end. Have fun.

    How would this be any different to what the EU do to companies like Airbus, even if what you post is true? (which sources today suggest is false)

    It is worth noting that the only reason Airbus operates it's A320 final assembly line in Hamburg because the German government and the EU gives them loans and guarantees.

    When another government does this its, of course, completely fine.
    When the British government does this it is, of course, a sign of corruption and desperation.

    The difference is clearly the context. What Airbus (and a few other companies) gets, is more or less a one-off. What is happening in Britain, is an epidemic in the making - does every major firm that produces in Britain and exports heavily get major subsidies now? It's not sustainable, and a major threat to your economy.

    Why would you produce a story thats a month old when the announcement was made just yesterday and that there was no tax subsidy?

    Did you not watch the news yesterday or read the papers?

    Well, the evidence is mounting, even the most deluded Brexiteer is starting to realise that it's going downhill...

    Why would you not read all posts in the thread before posting? Your point has been thoroughly pre-destroyed.

    Brexit is a major threat to the German economy, you mean. With 10% tariffs and a 20% devalued pound BMW, Bosch, VW-Audi and the like must be quaking in their boots at the thought of Britain leaving the EU and seeing their market go up in smoke, while British goods hitting the German market are a net 10% cheaper.

    Here's my prediction: The EU will decline to give Britain access to the single market without free movement; Britain will go its own way; Britain will implement a 10% corporation tax rate and screw the EU.

    Clearly the decision was made because of a discussion of future government policy, not because of incentives which will be given to Nissan alone or to just the big companies.

    There will probably be a free trade agreement on goods, but not on services.

    Our negotiators will have failed if they put the Germans in Dreamland while stifling our own economy. It's got to be both or neither; we both have to benefit.
