    Din't May just provide Japanese car manufacturers assurances? And now a free trade deal with the EU. Does this mean they can now cash in on those assurances at the UK taxpayers expense and profit from them with sales in the EU?

    Just gets funnier and funnier.

    For assurances read state aid, which becomes legal once we Brexit. Komrade Korbyn won't hesitate to give millions to the Japanese manufactures to build cars here all so we can say we have a car industry. British tax payers subsidising cars for the rich counties of the world. Excellent.

    You need to think about that in particular as to how this will impact the UK´s negotiating position.

    Because Germany IS the EU, and their car sales is all that matters.

    Mini unveiled a redesigned and more upscale convertible at the Tokyo Motor Show on Wednesday.

    Why Japan? That’s easy: Japanese sales are growing at a faster rate than sales in other major markets.

    Well we're subsidising a French power company and Chinese labour/employment through the increasing cost of a white elephant of a power station. We're British I suppose we've got loadsa of money. Really does make one wonder why we had a gripe with EU fees in the first place.

    Is the UK/BoE going through some worldwide QE program I don't know about? Enquiring minds would like to know...

    So Japan wants EU farming equipment. Wait a minute... JCB makes farming equipment too don't they? Indeed, it's on their webpage. Their director was also a staunch supporter of Brexit. I remember the jingoistic mugwump on TV.

    How sweet is that? Hope he's pleased with himself. And his staff more so. Idiots.
