    Feelings generally trump facts.

    The fact that they are moving 'design approval work for its large aero engines' to Germany as a 'precautionary' move means that my use of the 'thin end of the wedge' is correct. Unless Brexit is cancelled (or a suitable deal with the EU agreed) more things will follow...

    And the idea that this won't include jobs is naive...

    Manufacturer SKF announced last week a proposal to shut down its factory on Oldends Lane near Stroudwater Business Park, Stonehouse, pending negotiations with representatives of 180 workers who face redundancy.

    SKF, which makes bearings for the aerospace industry, has proposed ceasing manufacturing at the factory by December 31, 2021, and moving production to sites in Italy and France where it can make “better use” of modern machines.

    A company spokesman denied that the closure proposal is directly related to Brexit.

    Scaremongering. Why? If any of those things happen, I'll see you out Protesting won't I? And if the 'eu' was any good, why do we have the worst Pensions in the whole of it? Why the most homeless? Why has our industrial base gone but Germany's and France's haven't? Why Austerity across the 'eu' since 2008; not 2016? Why zero hours contracts across the 'eu'? I could go on but you catch the drift. #Brexit and without a deal please. WTO here we come. Yipeeeeeeeeee

    How is the EU responsible for these issues in Britain?

    Worst pensions in this the whole of Europe? Really? Worse than (say) Malta? Croatia? Portugal? I don't think so!!! And the most homeless? No...

    You may love Brexit and hate the EU but you can't just make up stuff and expect to be believed...

    Jeannie MC's post is indicative of why people voted leave - they wished, quite rightly, to make a protest against the many injustices and negatives caused by if not inflicted upon this country by government, but we're fooled into believing it is all the fault of the EU.

    If the EU is so terrible, how come .other EU nations have much better pensions? How come they have better manufacturing industries? How come they are not struggling with zero hours contracts, etc. etc?

    If the EU is so great why do so many EU citizens reside in the UK? (other than British EU citizens)

    Probably for the same reason so many Brits reside in other European countries - jobs, spouses, education, because they like that country better... I would quite happily have lived in the Netherlands had I not married Mr Bilongame

    The UK you described was as rubbish. Yet the 1.3 million UK citizens in the EU 27 are much smaller then the 3. 7 million from the 27 in the UK. Impossible to explain the massive net inflow.
