We even reached the position where my family was attacked - the car was smashed up and vandalised, written off. And the police didn’t pursue a single prosecution."

Latest update - Nissan will no longer manufacture the new X-trail in Sunderland, instead they'll be making it in Japan. It makes sense, they have an FTA with the EU, why manufacture in a country that doesn't?

This is on top of;

Dyson moving to Singapore (despite campaigning for Brexit).
Airbus threatening to leave
Merrill Lynch moving jobs to Paris
Jaguar Landrover cutting jobs

Apparently the Tories want the no-lube no deal version of brexit!

Government loses Brexit 'Plan-B' vote in Parliament.

It is like watching a Netflix soap opera, most are paid actors performing to the british public, most of whom are as clueless as these actors and actresses. british are what they were before, an evil, colonial, imperial empire. The clothes and the manner of speaking has changed, otherwise they have the same mentality as they did for the last 500 years. Just better concealed.

British Government admits paying Nissan to stay post Brexit

The business secretary has been forced to admit the existence of a previously secret package of state aid to Nissan that could have been worth up to £80m had the carmaker gone ahead with plans to manufacture a new model X-Trail in Sunderland after Brexit.

Greg Clark released a letter dated October 2016 in which he pledged tens of millions of taxpayer support and promised the Japanese company it would not be “adversely affected” after the UK left the EU.

Yet, at the time the commitments were first made, Downing Street had said “there was no special deal for Nissan” and Clark refused six times to answer a question about what was on offer when interviewed on the BBC. He even appeared to suggest no money was involved. Asked on BBC One’s Question Time about the deal, he said: “There’s no chequebook. I don’t have a chequebook.”

Clark and the government had repeatedly refused to release the 2016 letter until the promises turned out to be worthless, because Nissan had abandoned its future investment plan, partly because of uncertainty over Brexit.

The four-page document, sent by Clark to Nissan’s then chief executive, Carlos Ghosn, committed the government to “a package of support in areas such as skills, R&D and innovation” which “could amount to additional support of up to £80m”.

The state aid package ultimately turned out to be worth £61m when it was formally awarded to Nissan in June 2018, a fact only acknowledged by Clark in a second letter sent on Monday to the Labour MP Rachel Reeves, who chairs the business select committee.

========

The politicians knew about the damage their stupid political willy waving would cause - yet went ahead with it anyway. It's unforgiveable.
