    So we can all do our bit by buying British from British. I know the cost may be more but worth it in the end......just saying

    All the country has done is leave the European Parliament. In real terms, we still obey the same rules and regulations which the EU 'imposed' on us before Brexit it's just that now we have no say in the European Parliament so we can't veto things we don't like.

    It is now up to the UK government to work out trade deals with Europe, North America, China, etc in less than 11 months. Let's not try and worry about the fact that nothing got sorted out in the three years plus since the referendum took place.

    Yes, we better sort out a trade deal with China quick, so they can start shipping millions of pounds worth of goods here every day.

    Oh, hang on...

    I remember an old fable, about belief, habit and courage. Sort of.

    A baby elephant was tied up to a pole hammered in to the ground. It pushed and pulled but resigned itself to its fate.
    Many years later as a full grown powerful beast it could be tied to the now obviously tiny insignificant pole confident that it would do nowt but accept its lot.

    I had to pay duty on something from China recently - it was £69 and came by post, so Parcelfarce ripped me off for £12 "handling" and £6 taxes.

    It's called "keeping the money in the family", and that way we all benefit (you buy services from your brother and he buys goods from you) , where-as if the money is spent outside (like Chine, Korea etc) that money disappears forever and we all get progressively poorer.

    Not only BMW but VW/Porch, Mercedes Benz, they need the UK as that is a large chunk of their output/sales. This country (UK) new car sales, 75% is to the fleet market (company cars) and only 25% is the private market. The UK has by proportion of new car sales the highest %age bought by the fleet market and this is "dominated" by BMW and high end VWs, other Euro counties do not have that culture for Company Cars. So the big 3 are panicking with their 2nd biggest customer leaving the EU and will put pressure on Merkill.
