Brexit Phase Two - Trade

Come on then, display your defence knowledge. Just exactly which huge contracts will they lose and what will be the cost to UK to replace them?

From the article:

"When we look at the next generation of wings - which is called Wing of the Future - we are working on that today in the UK. Clearly now we are seriously considering whether we should continue that development or find alternative solutions.”

Last I heard, the UK government doesn't get to tell business where it will work or whether it will remain in the UK if it isn't profitable enough. How are they going to handle Japan?
I suspect they might not relocate.

Minister warns Airbus it will lose huge defence contracts if it pulls out of UK over Brexit

English translation: move out of the UK and the UK's armed forces will be buying American in the future.

Which is the only language the EU and Airbus will understand. May might be lacking in testicular fortitude, but fortunately other members of the government aren't.

If someone tries to ride roughshod over you in a negotiation, you bite back, not lay down and be trodden over. Bite back and you'll often get offered better terms.

With your forecasting abilities it's time for me to make a bet.

Apart from us wanting to partner French companies you're spot on....

It appears that leaving a political union where we had a say and becoming a US vassal state is a good option for some. I have no idea how their logic works.
Just watching BBC Parliament who have the re run of the Referendum coverage. Well worth watching again just for some of the absence of neck demonstrated in the interviews of talking heads.
I might be unpleasant watching for some posters.....o_O

Yes, I’m sure the rest of the world will be falling over themselves to do business with U.K. PLC.

After all, our leading Brexiteers have a jolly sharp handle on business, don’t they? ^^

But he is correct. The vote was to leave the EU, not faff about on trade deals etc. Business did not vote for brexit because business does not have a vote in a democratic society.

Project Fear seems to be losing its impact!
If airbus f*ck off, does that mean we can set up a company producing KC-130Js and C-17s under licence for the RAF?

We'd need a desk in that company to sell of the sh*t Airbus A400Ms...
Your defence procurement, industrial strategy and contract management knowledge matches that of WordMangler and your own constitutional knowledge.

The good thing, as far a business goes, if a plane built in China goes down then the Chinese enquiry consists of a 9mm for some poor sod.
Do you mean read the post again through the Shittinginabaglock kaleidoscope?

You contradict yourself at every turn.

A decade long stay of execution?

We could delay the inevitable, but it isn't inevitable if we're in the CU / SM, when economics will prevail, or perhaps they won't because of politics?

Is moving production out of the UK a 'God given opportunity to steal some top class industry' or not?

You say it is if it goes to EU, but isn't if it goes to China.

Make your mind up.
No contradiction Dan. You are simply failing to understand.

You're talking shite. Read again and understand
So you approve of fraud and corruption?

It's standard across the industry.

When the usual fools start attacking Bombardier Boeing and COMAC for the same practices, then I'll look at their posts as representative of the whole picture
