It was always going to be like this.

It is however what we choose, not what we are told.

That is very, very important to me.
I would like to see what people answered if they were asked: "is this what it always was to be like", when confronted with the (not fulfilled) promises, the red tape, the (temporary of course) drop of exports of 40-90%. Don't you think that - especially more young people - would have voted at all or differently, when they knew that FOM was off the menu? Or studying in the EU?
I am sure the votes would have been different if the people had known all that in advance.

However don't get me wrong, this is only my very personal opinion. I know way too little about the British people to make a reasonable assessment. As I said, just my humble opinion.

After Solly crowed about Nestlé closing a factory in the UK and moving production to the EU, and Zaphod's response:

Didn't you realise that, Solly?
Not every business decision on planet Earth is related to Brexit old chum.
I have to jump in just to show that Solly, as usual, is talking out of his nether regions and trying his hardest to stir the pot.

As reported widely 2 days ago (this is The Sun's take on the story), Nestlé will close 1 factory near Newcastle-upon-Tyne (that makes fruit pastilles) at the end of 2023 and cut the number of staff at another factory in York (that makes Kit-Kats). At the same time, Nestlé will be INVESTING over £9million in a factory in Halifax to take on the fruit pastille production, and over £20million in York to make it more efficient. Nowhere have I heard that Nestlé is moving any production from the UK to the EU. to cap it all, even the BBC News has reported the same as I've stated here.
