Brexiteers are literally causing the death of UKs economy. I don't see how Brexit will improve their economy unless they focus heavily outside the EU.

Brexit prob didn't help, but I think wages are typically more competitive in the UK so they were prob leaning that direction anyways.

Yeah, UK and Germany had pros and cons for the factory. But, Brexit no one knows what the f*** is going to come from that mess. It's too risky really for any company to invest in the UK while the mess is going on.

As it turns out, Germany isn't the only country willing to hand out free goodies to foreign countries and their clients. Here is the German government's response to the question "How much has Germany given to NATO?"

"It has received funds from the federal government since the start of the Cold War, when its strength was reduced due to the end of the Great War and the collapse of the Weimar Republic."

"It has been a source of financing for the Bundeswehr

Germany's central European location and infrastructure makes it an ideal place to build a car plant.

Plus, the British car industry is pretty much dead. Also a lot of uncertainty over Brexit.
