    Its a negotiation muppet, however what they are doing is unreasonable and petty as usual for your friends in the EU. I can see why you get along.
    Tellling though that your first instinct is to tell the head of the aerospace body to shut up.
    I'm pretty sure he knows a soupçon more than you.
    Other Brexiteers have retreated to their safe space on being exposed to facts, maybe you should too.
    Hard Brexit now!

    well if you side with the EU when they are being unreasonable why would anyone take you seriously? Oh sorry you don't understand that do you?

    The EU the bunny boiling ex.

    He could of said 'its going to be a challenge keeping expertise in the UK if the EU decide they don't want the UK applying for contracts, this does seem a little premature as we are unlikely to brexit for 2 years. I would love to see the Government make this a priority in negotiations". That would be a sensible comment from a man in his position. Instead he nailed his colours to the mast that he was a NoBrainer. Expect him to be looking for a new job soon.

    This is the lie that leavers were told, and they fell for, and they are still falling for it; that we can leave the EU are still have access to everything we had before but for no cost (actually for £350m per week saving). It's a lie guys so suck up the fact that the 27 EU countries are going to make you (us) pay for the lies and ignorance.

    Well done, you won, now stop whinging and live with the negative consequences of your decision.
    cutting off the membership benefits before we stop paying our subs is unreasonable & petty. As is refusing to deal with EU citizens rights before they extort money to pay for the MEPs pensions. YMMV.

    Yep: https://www.theguardian.com/politics...nied-residency
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Ooh hark at the Brexiter bully.
    It's more likely you'll be unemployed post Brexit than him.

    An industry I work closely in. Rolls Royce aerospace in Berlin, huge site. Perhaps larger than Derby.

    The stupidity of brexit is just beginning to unfold. It was never possible for the public to consider important business connections the UK and EU share when crammed into a 6-month jingoistic Tory fuelled campaign.
    “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.”

    ................Eh no you had a referendum and were misinformed by your government and leaders to vote out of the "enemy" EU. Now reap the consequences, alas it is not the Utopia you had been promised instead its an economic and political catastrophe.

    Oh look another AssSnob post of incomprehensible genius.


    If they demonstrate some then fine. They haven't of course its just the EU being petty.



    Bully
    1.
    a person who uses strength or influence to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.
    "he is a ranting, domineering bully"
    synonyms: persecutor, oppressor, tyrant, tormentor, browbeater, intimidator, coercer, subjugator; More
    verb
    1.
    use superior strength or influence to intimidate (someone), typically to force them to do something.
    "a local man was bullied into helping them"

    I have no power or influence over him so I can't be a Bully but as the head of the UK space he let his personal feelings overcome his judgement. Should we keep him in post? If he had said something equivalent revealing a Brexit preference I am sure you bremoaners would be baying for his head.
