Yep. One company, several factories and a number of departments.

There is a difference between dumping and fair competition. You should not be allowed to sell below the cost price of your product and tariffs should be put in place to prevent that.

If, however, your price is low because you have an efficient manufacturing process, that is fair competition and should be allowed.

The Chinese have been involved in dumping for years. That has destroyed western jobs, with those jobs exported to China.

Do you agree with China destroying western jobs through unfair and sometimes illegal competitive practices?

So that’s how it’s done. ‘Low pricing due to efficient manufacturing processes, (low wages, poor working conditions and a bowl of rice) that is fair competition and should be allowed.
Quick. Ring No 11.
 
Sky did a financial work out which I can't find. To save something like 6bn it's going to cost us 22bn, with no appreciable benefit .
Two years into this and no brexiter is able to give anyone an upside to Brexit.
did Grumpy do the weather? Doc as the anchor? You must be Dopey, seeing as you have missed two years of folk giving examples of upsides. We'll not be in the EU, not bound by their stupidity and be able to spend our
money where we want, and be free to do our own deals and business not mired by EU red tape. I've yet to hear a remainer give a balanced forecast of where the EU will be in ten years time. Other than 'isn't the EU fantastic, look unicorns of blue and yellow sh*ting stars'
 
Foreign investment plummeting

'Jaw-dropping' £300 billion negative swing in foreign investment flows since Brexit

In the UK, FDI outward flows went from minus £22 billion in 2016 to £99.7 billion (positive) the following year.

Inward flows dropped from £196 billion to £15 billion over the same period of time, resulting in a more than £300 billion swing.

The apparent 'drop' is because the previous years figures were massively inflated by a series of large buy ups of UK operations by forego investors, purchases such as ARM


This is more interesting.



Foreign investment in UK technology firms doubles in just one year

No, as in a previous post it was a chap called Raoul Ruparel who estimated that UK would be spending 22.5 billion a year to save the 8.5 billion we pay in to the EU.
Of course, he's not quite so knowledgeable as some of the posters on here who know all about high finance and spending and are experts on where we will spend it in the future.
In fact, the Mr Ruparel is such a no-nothing that David Davis hired him as a special advisor to assist on extracting UK from the EU.
Bloody amateurs, hey?

Ohh look. Another Brexit Boost good news story based on deceit.

Firstly, the competition pre-dates Brexit - this article dates from 2015

BAE, SAIC Named as Finalists in Marines ACV Competition

Upsides to Brexit. what Eu stupidity,?. The stupidity of their negotiators crumbling before our crack team. Europe falling apart without our calm and restraining hand guiding them on.


When did the Eu interfere with how we spent our money or dealt with or social and foreign affairs.

That’s like saying our school fees have affected our holiday plans.
We paid fees to be in there we got benefits, buildings, infrastructure and some money back.
They didn’t interfere with the rest of our money, what we called it and how we spent it. And by the way, we invented red tape.

so you're saying all of that money that the EU spent on projects in the UK wasn't ours? Where does EU money go in the UK? reality check by the bbc. It even opens with the words 'we pay more into the EU than we get out'. It's just not value for money.

How could it be ours.
Was it kept in a special British box, for British projects. How does make any sense. Surely it all goes into a big pot and is distributed from there.

If I pay cash for a house and give it to the solicitor beforehand to spend when the paperwork’s sorted out. I know it goes into an interest bearing account so he makes something on it while he’s waiting for things to go through. I don’t insist that he uses my money.
That would be stupid
 
Why. The evil unions, Labour Party, indifferent management lack of unicorns, loss of empire. Churchill dead?

Edit. You’re only catching on now. Boy, you’re slow.
Rather slow than stupid.
