HAS our Government gone completely soft in the head?

We have a state-of-the-art car-making facility here in the North-East that employs thousands of staff and the Japanese threat to take the manufacturing of certain models elsewhere although we have given them millions to stay here, and offered them more.

Let them go. Kick them out, the same as any other foreign company which thinks it can hold us to ransom.

We have the knowhow and the factories. Instead of giving foreign companies incentives, we should invest in our own British companies. It's not rocket science. We need to be self employed instead of working for foreign companies, if we are going to leave the EU.

I will buy British if the quality is excellent. We don't want to revert to the rubbish British Leyland spewed out.
