Labour to back Remain as it calls for a new EU referendum

Everywhere I go the "B" word. How long can this go on?

If the "B" word drags on any longer I'll need therapy.

Business goes on... "Brexit is irrelevant": https://www.kbbreview.com/23296/topstor ... -grohe-ceo :thumbup:
Not quite. :thumbdown:

Business incurs extra costs to ensure it can still trade in key market after Brexit:
KBB Review wrote:Like many other KBB manufacturers, Grohe has invested in bringing more stock into the UK. Rauterkus implemented this strategy to meet customer expectations and so that the company would be have the stock to meet demand, no matter what the political environment.

Increasing stock levels was a long and expensive process for Grohe. Rauterkus said: “Bringing in so much stock is expensive – it is not a free lunch. So, you really need to find the balance, but it is something we had to do.
No cliff edge for them; "...business goes on...!"
That's right, they have protected themselves by investing in a "long and expensive process" of stockpiling their products in the UK.

Every now and again, I take the time to treat you seriously, Boro Boy. This is one of those times, so read this carefully:
  • This is not a good news story. It is not a story about the benefits of Brexit.
  • It is a story about one company incurring additional cost in order to maintain the same position after Brexit as they had before.
  • If you try to present this story to support the argument that Brexit is good for this country, this business, or indeed business in general, it implies you do not understand what the impact of Brexit is. You look foolish as a result.
For the sake of your own reputation, just drop this one and leave it.

Be as patronising as you wish I find it irrelevant but you should have also read the following as it implies that you have been very foolish raising your head and spouting off without even reading the title line...: "...potential is so big, Brexit is irrelevant’"

Despite Brexit. Not because of it.

I refer you to your own comment above, and to mine above that.

Nothing precise about it! I thought Theresa May was still PM, (Until tomorrow anyway) The Queen has to accept a resignation and be satisfied that he can command a majority in Parliament.

True the treacherous, lying, adulterous buffon will soon be our PM. Mainly thanks to a very small group of mostly elderly white people.

Trouble is the main opposition is the current Labour party. I am glad I am as old as I am, childless and with siblings all in Australia.
Keep smiling because the light at the end of someone's tunnel may be you, Ron Cheneler
