Brexit Phase Two - Trade

as said above. If they are moving to China then this was merely a convenient time to bury bad news.
They weren't. they need to build in China to get sales, as does Boeing. In the end, if they don't Chinese indigenous builds will do them over.

You're quoting meerkatz as someone who has a Scooby FFS, does that not indicate how low you've fallen?
 
from the Airbus article.
'We have sought to highlight our concerns over the past 12 months, without success.
[mischievous] I'm sure it sucks to be marginalised and not have your voice heard. At least you're not being accused of being nationalist, racist, xenophobic, et al whilst they're ignoring your legitimate concerns.[/mischievous]
 
You say tomato I say tomateoh, let's call the whole thing off.

During my trips over the Irish canal it was always referred to as Southern Ireland, even though bits of it were north (west) of our location.
How on earth can people call Brexiteers stupid xenophobes when we beacons of knowledge and tolerance like your good self A-Y?
 
Yeah... can't wait to fish the sea dry, go into recession and get rid of the immigrants.
Well OK I'll bite. The only immigrants the British want rid of is the English, That's why The government is allowing a prospective 3.3 Million to settle PLus their aged p's so that the aging population can be included in the squeals of the National Mortality Service and ultimately the English will either die or be squeezed out. Then the Europeans can vote us back into the Franconian led European Union.

Not really there are official names for countries, Southern Ireland aint one! And as you point out it would be a misnomer anyway seeing as the most northerly part of the island of Ireland is part of the Republic.
 
Frictionless trade is what he wants, as does business in the UK. However, when we lay down some oil to smooth the way, along come Juncker, Barnier and any acolytes they have to hand like Tusk or Varadkar with their squeegees to remove the oil and lay down sand! UK and EU businesses may want frictionless trade but the EU elite don't - that is very clear!
Leave the club, lose the benefits. It's that simple
 
So many companies threatened to leave, so few companies have left.

After all that’s said and done, there’s a lot more said than done.

Airbus to lift plane production in China yup. Being going around for six months or more. And Boeing moving too. So an emerging market may have enticed firms in to their parlour with offers of deals in return for investment?
They weren't moving out of the UK though, they'd already said that, then this government displayed how good at planning and negotiating it is.

Have we left yet?

if a multinational says its not going to move it's usually a sign that the packing boxes are already ordered...Airbus Planes Built In China May Mean Trouble For Europe
The A320 aircraft is the world's best-selling commercial jetliner. More than 6,300 have been sold and about 400 A320 are flying in China. European production of the aircraft was reduced in October from 36 planes a month to 34, according to the International Association of Machinists. It is expect to decline further as production increases in China to cut costs and meet that country's expected demand of 2,800 passenger jets in the next 20 years.



"European unions say the move [to China] only exacerbates fears that more work could be outsourced at a time when European working families need the jobs the most," the machinists union said. "They also fear the loss of European technology to Chinese counterparts."

Airbus officials see things a little differently. They view the Chinese factory and technology-sharing as a tactical move that could provide an advantage over rival Boeing, which makes components in China but doesn't have a full production facility there.

"No one will benefit more from this than Europeans," Airbus CEO Tom Enders said recently. Building aircraft outside of current borders "is the future and, with innovation and internationalization, Airbus can win a share of this future."





But if Airbus doesn't watch out it may have a competitor beyond Boeing to contend with.

As the Post-Intelligencer notes, China's aviation industry includes more than 200 enterprises that produce and manufacture aerospace products and employs 491,000 workers, according to the US-China Economic Security and Review Commission's 2008 report to Congress. China has also has expressed interest in a domestically designed and built aircraft and is therefore hoping to learn from Airbus' expertise.

The newly built A320 took its first test flight last month with the first Chinese test engineer trained by Airbus, and Airbus engineers in Beijing already are working on carbon-composite technology for the next-generation A350 XWB. This doesn't mean the Chinese are poised to take over the aviation industry. But the outlook certainly does not look good for Airbus' European workforce, which seems to be getting mixed signals from Enders.

"Right now the UK is the supplier of wings for the Airbus family but that doesn't mean the Chinese can't build a good wing," he told the Telegraph. "If we underestimate our Chinese friends, there will be a problem. Europe is not the only play in town. The UK has got to keep an edge in research and technology."
from June 2009 btw.
