    For Ellesmere Port to survive, it needs something else apart from the Astra. It's not a bad car but in a declining sector. Subtracting rather than adding work looks like the place is doomed.

    But three years is plenty enough for car manufacturers to adjust to an unknown and changing set of Brexit expectations.
    Classic Brexit: the triumph of rhetoric over reality
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
