    Exactly. Any closure is despite Brexit. It would be twice as closed if it weren't for Brexit.

    Trump supports Brexit because -

    In 2015 Ford announced investment plans to manufacture new types of petrol engines at Bridgend. I wonder what has changed since 2015 ?

    It would be wrong to blame Brexit, it was probably due to the decline in the demand for diesel engines.
    I'm alright Jack
