It’s business as usual in the post-Brexit world

It’s business as usual in the post-Brexit world, by Ross Clark.

Remember how Brexit was going to cost jobs and investment?  … How long ago all that seems now. …

German rail engineering firm Siemens … having warned during the referendum campaign that it would withdraw investment in the UK, in July it changed its mind and decided that on the contrary, it would after all plough new money into the UK.

The prospect of factory gates being slammed and chained was nothing more than an idle threat in order to try to persuade us to vote in a way which European companies would have found a little more convenient. But referendum out of the way, they are carrying on doing business in a remarkably similar way to they were before.

You mean the dire predictions were a con? NO! Shocked face.
