Fears for 1,700 jobs as Ford set to close Bridgend plant I thought that this was supposed to be project fear? Although to be fair Patrick Minford of "Economists for Brexit" did say it would happen, so some Brexiters seem to have forseen it. Although apparently he says it's supposed to be a good thing, so that will bring the people of South Wales some comfort. After all, a large percentage of them voted Brexit and for the Brexit party, and they knew what they were voting for so must have been expecting this. I guess it's time for them to break out the champagne then!!! Another victory against the smug metropolitan elite! Well done!!
