It's not just the bankers and car manufacturers who are leaving...

Philips is the latest company in a chorus of major industrial players – which also includes Jaguar Land Rover, BMW and Airbus – to warn about the negative impact of an acrimonious split between the UK and EU.

 

“At the moment, we are considering all scenarios, including one in which there is a so-called ‘hard Brexit’,” said Philips spokesman Steve Klink. “In that case, it could include the departure of our manufacturing for export.”

How foolish and ill-informed were the electorate when we voted 2 years ago.

How foolish of the many people who don't realise how much damage the EU has done to (once) Great Britain. 

 

Profit and 'economic growth' are not the only important things in the world. 

 

The environment of this country, together with the infrastructure, services, social fabric and many other things have been irreparably damaged in recent years, and we were heading for masses more of the same until the Brexit vote.

And Brexit is the "cure" for all those issues?

Haven't we just ratified all existing EU directives, and had them written into the UK books of statute?

 

Anyway, where's the evidence that a) the environment, infrastructure, services and social fabric have all been damaged because of EU policy, and not in spite of it, and b) that our homegrown government would be better at managing these things?
