Ford have apparently told the government that they are planning to move production out of the UK, as Brexit will mean the end of JIT supply chains. That's 13,000 jobs plus supply chains.

They warned about this before the Referendum, but areas with Ford plants (eg Bridgend) vote Leave. :roll:

Brexit is national crisis, former diplomats tell Theresa May

Ex-ambassadors and high commissioners say UK is weakened by ‘fiasco’

They warn: “If the prime minister’s deal is passed in parliament it will not be the end of Brexit but will in fact mark the start of year upon on year of negotiation and renegotiation – truly a ‘Brexternity’ of endless uncertainty about our future for both citizens and businesses alike.”

Someone has already tweeted that this has nothing to do with Brexit, but consolidation of manufacturing capacity in Japan, Swindon being Honda's sole EU plant.

I'll wager that big trade deal signed between the EU and Japan helps...
