Almost like they stand to benefit from the Chinese flu.

Hardly suprising. Whilst we all make noises about bringing business back to the UK, we're all busy on eBay etc buying low-priced Chinese made stuff with rock bottom P&P despite the distances. An odd double-think (me too!) and an indication of why our politicians are in a no-win bind on this one, unless they hike import duties and start a trade war we could never win.

Does this really justify HYS?
Not at all, but its the standard rhetoric of trying to find an anti-brexit story to get the morons out and commenting on. Removed

Did you just call yourself a moron??

You are definitely a very naughty person, giving the moderators a conundrum and on a Monday morning!

Don't worry, some overpaid footballer can begin a movement for kids to get them free on the grounds that their mental health will suffer if they don't have one. Removed

agree completely. find a UK company to supply the equipment. Buy British
Get on with it then instead of replying to your twin bot account.

You'll need to import parts and raw materials. You'll also be earning the minimum wage but at least it's better than spending your benefits on booze, fags and smartphones eh?

perhaps then this needs adjusting if it is cost effective to have manufacturing here i bet it starts to come back.
The service based industry also includes cafes, sandwich delivery firms canteens so these will be provided for these new bases. Stop being so negative as normal

And so was I and I didn't label you as an inward thinking remainer, I just countered your argument with an idea that we need to do more here and maybe now is the time but then insults is all you are able to fight back with Removed

so because I have given you or a fellow person of your leaning a counter argument and you/ they do not like it you have my response removed,
Must have lost the argument then.
All I did was point out the opportunities that are available

Typical head-in-the-sand brexiteer approach to this issue, despite the fact that our economy is (was?) 80% service based, we just don't have the industry to back up the demand for products we use that come from other countries.
Typical nanny-state Remoaner approach; "we're useless & need to be told what to do & making things is beyond us", rather than the Brexiteer's "OK, let's start up a company making what we need".

Pathetic.

Typical remainer snapshot-view response. It may be 80% now but hasn't always been and there is no rule that says it needs to remain at 80%. We don't have the industry until someone starts making it, ...then we do. Removed

Typical negative remoaner response. Us Brexiteers have a can do attitude. It is why we won. Removed

I would ban children's trampolines. Jumping up and down and shaking a child's brain in a developing skull cannot be a good idea.
Quite. That's what drunken parents are for. Removed

What's the difference between a Brexiteer and a trampoline?

You take your shoes off to jump on the trampoline.

Years of practice and blowing all our charity on the likes of Jonathan Ross, Graham Norton, and Gary 'Goalhanger' Lineker.
The BBC issue here, prompted by poor reporting, is very straightforward & unambiguous. There is simply no justification in forcing a licence fee on us. It's not a 'licence' or a 'fee', it is an enforced subscription. If you want BBC output, you should choose to pay for it. If you prefer Sky or Netflix, you should not have to. The cheeky muppets then charge us twice by charging for Britbox repeats! Removed

No, you need to dress your pro-Brexit bias. You made a big mistake and can't admit that's all. The BBC is publishing no pro-Brexit stories because there ARE no positive Brexit stories, as you were warned there wouldn't be.

Your problem, you deal with it.
You're almost funny, though also a defeatist & a fantasist.

We're OUT & WILL prosper now we're no longer a part of the corrupt, dogmatic & stifling monster, the EU.
There would never have been any momentum for leaving had it stuck to being a free trade organisation but of course the neo-liberals wanted something more; a United States of Europe.

No more having others think for you.

Live with it.
