The point I'm making it is not as clear cut as in or out of the EU.

Many companies, both in the UK and other EU countries who sell us goods
that the majority of us can afford currently have outsourced their
manufacturing to the far east or countries outside of the EU. They are
not operating within the the single market for manufacturing but find
easy to bring the goods into the EU through all the red tape,
bureaucracy and tariffs the doom and gloom merchants would have us
believe would stop all future trade with the EU - or even the rest of
the world if no free trade deals exist.

If you are that worried about protecting British car working jobs buy a
car assembled in the UK rather than a foreign built car. If all those
advocating remaining in the EU did so then the production at UK car
plants wouldn't need exports of cars in order to survive and imports of
completed cars would reduce - a win, win situation.
