    Default Toyota makes decision about UK post Brexit

    Toyota to invest £240m in UK plant at Burnaston - BBC News

    Toyota is to invest £240m in upgrading its UK factory that makes the Auris and Avensis models.

    The Japanese carmaker's investment in the Burnaston plant near Derby will allow production of vehicles using its new global manufacturing system.

    The factory employs about 2,500 people, while another 590 work at Toyota's engine plant at Deeside, North Wales.

    Burnaston made about 180,000 vehicles last year, most of which are exported to Europe and other markets.
    Doomed!

    "Burnaston made about 180,000 vehicles last year, most of which are exported to Europe and other markets."

    That would work really well under WTO rulez

    They are penthouses in the city that have had more investment.
    “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.”

    What it means is poorly-paid zero hour gigs for workers, no UK CT for Toyota and UK coffers and all profits going to Japan. Sort of like we used to do to the World's poor countries in the past.....

    However, he warned: "Continued tariff-and-barrier free market access between the UK and Europe that is predictable and uncomplicated will be vital for future success."
    In other words WTO means, bye bye Toyota, bye bye Nissan and all the rest of them.

    lets face it the UK is going to cave in and sign up to a humiliating deal with the EU, and they all know it.

    I'm alright Jack
