Leaving the EU., the good news (for a change).

    We know that many areas of British life are dependent on workers from overseas.

    However, for some people there seems to be a disconnect between that fact and their desire to 'control immigration'.

    I still do not believe that Leavers voted to replace immigration from one part of the world with immigration from other parts.

    Nothing was 'accidentally' omitted. I quoted the part of the article I thought was relevant and included the link for those who wanted to read further.

    They didn't. They voted to leave the EU so that, among other things, immigration policies can be decided by the Westminster government. That is what is happening and why the NHS is seeing an increase in staff from UK citizens and from non-EU countries. It is precisely what they voted for.

    No problem. I'm always happy to correct bias in reportage, be it accidental or intentional.

    Indeed. Immigration equality is something to be celebrated.

    British Steel asks for state help to avert 'Brexit related' crisis

    About 70% of British Steel’s products are exported to either the EU or Turkey and North Africa, markets affected by Britain’s trading relationship with Europe.

    The source said these markets had dried up, particularly since February when it became clear that a Brexit deal was not going to be finalised by 29 March.

    So long as people don't complain about the brown and/or muslim immigrants from the Commonwealth replacing the EU immigrants.

    British Steel is on the verge of administration as it continues to lobby for government backing, sources say. Unless a deal is reached by Tuesday afternoon, the firm could go into administration within 48 hours. EY would be expected to be appointed as administrators on Wednesday.

    TBF Tata sold it for £1 to a private equity company before the referendum. It was always going to struggle from crisis to crisis.

    The pound has suffered its longest losing streak against the euro since the creation of the single currency two decades ago as turmoil in Downing Street spilled over into the world’s currency markets.

    Speculation that Theresa May’s premiership was coming to an end following her failure to win support for her Brexit deal saw sterling drop for a 13th day in a row against the euro.

    Brexit uncertainty has led to a mothballing of commercial and civil engineering projects and caused a contraction of the UK’s struggling construction industry, the latest snapshot of the sector has found.

    The Chartered Institution of Procurement and Supply said its survey conducted by IHS Markit showed its purchasing managers’ index slipping back from 50.5 in April to 48.6 in May. A finding below 50 indicates the sector is contracting.

    EU law prevents us from supporting our own steel industry.

    1.27$ and 1.13Euro today. If the Brexit delay has caused a weakening pound/construction decline then Westminster needs to get the clowns in order.

    ...and do what ?

    What do you imagine will happen to the £ after a no-deal brexit.

    But it didn't stop us doing that recently - so why do you think it stops us now?

    Because he gets his "information" from dubious sources?

    See Article 107 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union

    The UK has undertaken not to provide certain state aid post Brexit and continue to be aligned with EU regulation

    Ford Europe has called union leaders from Bridgend's engine plant to its Essex headquarters on Thursday.

    There are renewed concerns for the factory's future - it opened nearly 40 years ago and employs 1,700 workers.
