5000 Jaguar jobs to go; dear old Brexit; what a great idea (not) 1 Week, 4 Days ago  
And if we do leave the EU in March; hundreds of thousands more jobs will go and the Brexiteers will be delighted that at least we're not letting filthy foreigners in to fill them.

Even though the Sunderland area is largely dependent on Nissan - with 8,000 workers, and those with suppliers etc. - 56% of the electorate voted to leave the EU.

In Derbyshire, where Toyota play a similar role in the community, a majority also voted to leave - putting thousands of livelihoods at risk.

The biggest examples of foot shooting ever - as both these car giants have numerous
other options.

Nissan have an alliance with Renault, and can easily relocate to France; a country which already has a shareholding in said alliance.

And Ford have just announced they're scaling back production at their engine building factories in Brigend and Dagenham.

General Motors have already left the UK - when they sold their loss-making Opel Vauxhall business, some months ago.

Had you read the news more carefully Doctor King you would have seen the other reasons....bad sales in China....and the problems with diesels...

....Once the dithering idiots in parliament have got on and delivered Brexit you'll start seeing EU car makers looking at options of avoiding the tariffs,and building some models here....it's basic economics...but those who put political beliefs before economic common-sense.....fill in the blanks....

Well we may see - if Brexit goes through (which I feel less likely every day).

There will be a lot of problems....caused mainly by out of touch politicians sabotaging it Doctor King....and a direct result will be the rise of both the hard left and right....

...a look at history when the public are ignored should teach us all a lesson....

Anyway am off to sample your Tunisian snow....would you do Rabat or Fes for a weekend getaway late February?

Would seem some EU based manufacturers are taking a different view to Doctor King....for a man who hates headline pushed agendas our Venerable King is getting very good at warping the truth for a good headline himself...

Jaguar have stopped all work on liquid fueled cars and are only working towards electric and that work is being done elsewhere these are the last generation Jaguars you can buy now that do not need to be charged.
Nothing to do with Brexit.
Europe will need to work hard after we leave Mrs May has ballsed it up you need business people to sort it out not cockwomble's

Paradoxically, one completely British - owned and managed - car manufacturer is unable to keep up with demand.

For 110 years, Morgan have manufactured cars in Worcestershire - and now make about 1,500 cars a year; about 6 different models.

Handmade and with a waiting list - deemed, by those who know, to be classic sports cars. Wood remains a feature of each.

Stopped all work? I think not.

But all major vehicle manufacturers see electric cars as the future - and are gearing up for it.

Development problems include slow charging, planning permission for home charging docks and grid capability - in various countries.

Progress is being made, but it's be a decade or two before Ford's combustion engine is redundant.


Driverless cars will also be common soon, just like most modern cars don't have spare wheels - as we knew them...

Yes we are. Just "richer" filthy foreigners.
None of it makes sense.

A big turn down in new car sales globally is the main cause.
Want to be truly to be seen as Eco friendly buying cars ?
Keep your old one
Service and look after it
Buy second hand parts if you can.
To be honest that's better than what it takes to build a new one from scratch even if they burn fossil fuels you are burning more making new and melting down the old.
See if have sorted climate change out
