  1. £440m a week and we haven’t even left yet - makes me relieved I am able to sit this one out. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  2. The aerospace industry is a good indication of the issues that non-tariff barriers will cause should we leave without a substantive deal partly because it is virtually unaffected by tariffs since the vast majority of aerospace goods are duty free worldwide and also are zero-rated for VAT in the U.K. for aircraft over 13000 kgs.

  3. See TM has lost another minister. Though not over brexit it is a problem she could do without and the spotlight will be on Boris now who also promised to 'lie down in front of the bulldozers' over a third runway. https://news.sky.com/story/minister-greg-hands-resigns-from-government-to-vote-against-heathrow-expansion-11411989 Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  4. There was an interesting study done in the North East earlier this year by Square One Law on behalf of the NE Chamber of Commerce aimed at gauging how state of preparedness for Brexit with quite disturbing results: “Businesses fed back that preparation for Brexit was polarised and effectively took the form of two options: no preparation whatsoever; or preparation to relocate to mainland Europe.” https://www.neechamber.co.uk/updates/brexit-ready/foreword-by-neil-warwick Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Thaivisa pro app

    Had same problem a couple of years ago and had to switch back to the free version - seems I was conned into paying for an add free version that didn't get supported.
  9. Do you actual read the articles you post or are you just blind to anything that does not agree with your views. The statement from Dr Lee clearly states: “When the Government is able to set out an achievable, clearly defined path – one that has been properly considered, whose implications have been foreseen, and that is rooted in reality and evidence, not dreams and dogma – it should go to the people, once again, to seek their confirmation.” Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Australia - Departure Prohibition Order

    Guess the hard part of that may be explaining to future in-laws that you can't visit them as you are banned from leaving Australia due to not paying for your kids from previous marriage.
  11. The fact that they have now announced that they are moving the production of the Discovery to Slovakia after warning about doing it a few months ago if there was uncertainty over Brexit. That there is some woolly promise about investment in the future hardly butters many parsnips - from your article: "But at the moment, JLR has not told us what other models this will open the door to, and what level of investment they are pledging at Solihull." Seems to be a pattern here of replacing actual trade with vague promises. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. The decision to move this production to Slovakia is specifically due to uncertainty about Brexit - the plan originally was to build them in Solihull as recently as the following from an interview last September. “Top JLR boss Andy Goss told Sky News that its investment in a car plant in Slovakia should now be seen as a "hedge" against uncertainty around the post-Brexit trading environment. "It's become a hedge by default - we will assess everything in the cold light of day - we don't expect to do it, but if we have to we will," he told me.” https://news.sky.com/story/brexit-forensics-why-car-industry-is-getting-worried-11041671 Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. I do remember a lot of talk on that but, fortunately, it came in just after one report and had been abandoned by the time my next was due. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
