I remember from my days of working just outside Swindon (in a peaceful little town called Lechlade) how much a part of the local landscape Honda was. Not only in physical size, but as a huge employer.

So many local people worked there in some capacity. A great many smaller villages in the area must have had similar ties to the factory, and as such it would have been a great support to the local economy.

Without it, I imagine lots of people will likely have to look further afield for employment, resulting in having to move away, harming the communities and stunting growth within.

This is only an example of one such company in this situation across the country. It will be a devastating blow if Honda were to move parts of its production overseas.

Thanks for this post Goffick. I am not really a 'car person' and there is a part of me that would like to see the Honda factory dismantled and turned into woodland. The other part of me (and I couldn't say which is the better part) supports the Honda workers and their jobs. Just as I supported the miners back in the mid 1980s. Most of those mines haves gone now and fossil fuels are being phased out but that was the future which couldn't be foreseen back in the 1980s. Perhaps in 40 years time people will return to bicycles and other means than owning a car of getting from A to B. That is the future though - history will record the impact of brexit, global warming and over population.

Tweet of the week by Danny

Jacob Rees-Mogg
Today's aggressive comments by Messrs Varadkar and Barnier show why we are right to be leaving the mafia-like European Union.

Danny Blanchflower Retweeted Jacob Rees-Mogg
You are a bloody crackpot

As predicted, from now on we're going to hear the whole bloody mess isn't due to Brexiters it's due to Europe's failure to co-operate

Such a decent man he had a four year affair with Edwina Curry as a married man and no doubt told his wife a few lies. I wonder how much she was hurt?

Ha ha, I see what you tried to do there but it failed because I proved he was not a decent man but a cad who cheated on his wife with another woman.

Of course. When a highly authoritative thinker with nothing to gain says Cornwall will be buggered by the Brexit you've called for all you have is the whataboutery klaxon (Or abuse. Or silence. Or a seventh flounce! Let's see.)
