The other part of the problem is this.
Rules of Origin.
Our FTAs we have as part of the EU specify rules of origin, which for cars are 55%.
When we leave, and we must, any components manufactured here in the UK will not count towards the 55% EU total.
I have moved from the village to the town, where we have 3 big manufacturers supplying parts to EU Car Manufacturers.
This is a big issue for them, they will have to move to the EU or close.
It is not just the big boys either.
The wear plates for stamping out every BMW car panel are made here in the UK.
In a small village near here, British Engineering at it's best, a very sophisticated operation.
They are a just on time operation, they have to supply new ones in 24 hours.
The Boss is my age, a member of the same fishing club, too much hassle, selling up.
A No Deal means a certificate for every chemical consignment abroad, every food export and every meat export.
We have the British Standards Institute, accepted World Wide.
Unfortunately they cannot issue such certificates, we swapped them for EU Certificates.
A cost saving so beloved of Government.
The Certificates are required under WTO Rules for each consignment and an HGV will typically have an average of 4 consignments.
We stopped training and certification decades ago.
I cannot sign for medicines, meat or offal.
I can sign for Chemicals and processed meat and non meat foodstuff exports.
Before the cuts started, we had 5600 who could, now less than 500 who can.
We have no training courses of our own and all the EU ones are booked for months ahead.
I have mine, paid for and I have kept updated at my own expense.
I am not going to be busting a gut over this.
I will do 8 at £50 a time, one day a week, for the locals.
Hence my £400 a day Moscow.
A wage you said no one on here would believe.
I will be working for my son Guy on this and getting Minimum wage so as minimise tax liability.
I am not going to be paying 40% Tax.
I can do 4 an hour, so 2 hours a day for me and he gets the rest.
The Government by the way have agreed £117 a time.
