Re: Got to love this assessment....
Quote (my emphasis): "Ford have already announced they're closing their remaining UK plants ..."
Ford have been closing their UK plants for the last 4 or 5 years - it's amazing Ford reacted to the Brexit result so many years before it happened. /sarc
Trying to blame Brexit for problems that have already been going on (in your example Ford) is rather stupid - these problems have been happening under the EU, haven't they? And as the EU thinks its ideology must advance whatever the cost (see Greece, Visigrad etc) then the economic and social costs will increase.
The unlistening ideological unbending EU left the UK only two choices:
1 - comply with further EU 'progress' but pretend nothing will change so call it 'Remain'
2 - Brexit.
Thankfully the British chose Brexit.
