I'm not sure that non-UK itinerate EU fruit pickers assemble cars!

Leaving the EU will not stop EU fruit pickers coming to work - just that
they will probably need a work permit, have proof that the job exists,
have no automatic rights to (unemployment or in-work) benefits nor a
right to long term residency. In the case of fruit pickers .We will
probably just go back to the system similar to that which worked prior
to the EU concept of freedom of movement.

The same way as UK companies can send someone to the USA or Australia
for similar. The company supplying the robots will have a service
contract with service people available with the appropriate paper work
already in place.

It took the UK until 2006 to pay back the loans made by USA and Canada
during WW2.

Only a loser Remoaner could bring up Brexit in a thread like this.

If you know as much about Brexit as you do Newtonian Mechanics.....

When Britain tried to weasel out of WWI debt, Calvin Coolidge famously
said 'They hired the money, didn't they?'

https://winstonchurchill.hillsdale.e...lvin-coolidge/

Coolidge saw through that blustering windbag Churchill. Churchill should
have retired to a farm and raised collies after his WWI disgrace rather
than fomenting another war trying to prove a hero. He was as wrong
headed as G.W. Bush trying to show pops how it is done.

Very valid when considering the manufacturing future of the UK. Not that
I'd expect you to care much about that.

You really are a poor loser.

Whilst in the EEC/EU for 40 years many UK companies out-sourced their
manufacturing to the far east! The EU has done bugger all for a lot of
the UK manufacturing industries so would have been unlikely to have done
so in the future.

Not quite sure the point you're making? Are those UK companies like Dyson
going to bring back manufacturing to the UK after we leave the EU? Or will
it simply speed up even more leaving? Like Nissan, BMW, Jaguar, etc?

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.

You are suggesting fortress UK? How do we get the energy and food needed
in? Let alone everything else we don't make.

Brexiteers saying we can do well setting up new deals with the rest of the
world outside the EU just so much hogwash?
