Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
British car industry at the cliff? It just dawned on me (yes I'm slow) that cross channel trade will be greatly diminished and that cross channel just-in-time sourcing is basically over. A net negative for everyone but especially for the UK and you can't really blame EU governments for advising businesses on how to exploit the opportunities as more business moves to the continent. Ah shit.

But maybe something good will come out of it for the UK. Everybody needs a cold shower now and then.

As the great Rik Mayall said: "Good grief we are British, you know. We invented cold showers. To stop people..."

Schengen is toast!
