Rumours that Honda will close its Swindon plant    (Score: 1, Normal) 02-18-2019 09:49

I wonder if this true, https://www.google.com/amp/s/news.sky.com/story/amp/honda-to-stun-ministers-with-closure-of-swindon-factory-11641154

I think this will have a big impact on the UK economically. I just don't see any merits to Brexit or why so many people thought it would be a good idea to vote for it.

Okay, noted.

I'm not sure if this MP, see below, from Swindon, is pro Brexit, but if he is, there's no way he actually believes his BS statement, that Brexit had no bearing on Honda's rumoured decision.

"Swindon North MP Justin Tomlinson said Honda’s decision to consolidate European market production in Japan was not as a result of Brexit." (Source Irishtimes.com)

He tweeted: “Honda will be consulting with all staff and there is not expected to be any job losses, or changes in production until 2021.”

What is Honda’s outlook on worldwide Civic demand in the next 5-10 years?

-- Yep, Tomlinson, is a pro Brexit MP, funny how that works. There's no doubt that there are other factors contributing to Honda's decision. But the idea that Brexit is not playing a part in decision making is unfathomable.

"U.K.-made products also risk being disadvantaged by a new treaty that will gradually eliminate tariffs on Japanese imports to the EU, though Tomlinson, a pro-Brexit Tory, said the divorce wasn’t a factor in Honda’s move."
