Is there a very good reason for the move? E.g. they are Juncker's preferred wine merchant and will definitely lose that contract unless they move.

They will talk of “transition” tonight, after she has left the room. Remainers cling to a long “transition” in the hope something will turn up. But listen to business begging for more time and they only want the extra time to move companies across the Channel. Transition is just a longer plank, but we still walk off it in the end.

There is going to be a transition but a lot of companies will still be moving their businesses over to the EU and there will be a worsening recession until as such as point as the government collapses and is replaced by a Labour government that will sign up to a Swiss type deal.

Not impossible, although Labour might go for a full sell-out and EEA. I don't think Corbyn actually cares much about the EU. He doesn't like it, but he's mainly interested in being able to do stuff w/r to state aid, vs. being ideologically opposed to the institutions, and I think he'd swallow this if it kept his party more united. I don't think he cares much about trade (deals). :laugh Also, I think most of the electorate have moved on from Brexit. As long as it happens, I don't think a majority really care about the details that much.

Sure, but it isn't ideological, he just has some silly ideas about state aid and related crap. Any trade organization is going to have rules on state aid, by definition. Witness Bombardier and how Airbus took a stake in the C series to circumvent the problem. A lot of the crap that he wants to do is impossible anyway. Labour's shifting position on the EU is testament to this being a practical issue for comrade Corbyn, not an ideological one.

I didn't say he had no ideals, just that the EU doesn't really register in his ideals, beyond preventing him doing stuff on state aid (which is prevented by WTO anyway). He's thinking way bigger than the EU w/r to policies that address any person or company that would be so uncomradely as to earn anything more than that of an acceptable comrade.

Well he won't be able to confiscate huge sums from the likes of Amazon while we're still in. It's EU rules that see them pay their corp tax in Luxembourg rather than here. One of the hidden benefits of Brexit, everyone will be forced to pay their "fair share". Some will get to pay a "fairer" share than others, mind...

It's a done deal, happening in March. CEO said in the meeting many factors but the move of the EMA from London is one, uncertainty about access to highly skilled staff is another, size of the market is yet another.

Shit just got real. :smokin

If those in charge want brexit scrapped, they need to get more of these real world affected players to show their hands asap.

Then they can prove that the impact is real and not political posturing.

I wonder what odds Ladbrokes are offering for May to fall on her sword due to brexit negotiation failure, triggering another vote, this time not by the public but by those in charge 'in the public interest', to reverse brexit under the 'promise' of EU reform to also appease other EU member states.

That or May and co capitulate with the 50 billion bribe to stay in the EU while 'out', so the EU can show its members that leaving is not an option, before the anti-EU political parties across Europe get more of a foothold.
