    Jack , one of the major losses that British Steel has suffered is the market for rails for railway projects in Europe. This has forced them to go in liquidation.

    Perhaps they will get a PM who wants Brexit, unlike May.

    @TAS

    Your statement is rather disingenuous. An article I read stated British Steel’s issues are in large part related to jitters about Brexit, because EU customers were nervous about tariffs schedules so long as the matter wasn’t settled. Labour seizes on this as a “so there” declaration, oblivious to the the fact that obstructionist Labour is...obstructing.

    The UK goobermint had just subsided £120 million so British Steel could comply with EU emissions standards.

    I would contend that UK would be in a stronger position no longer being compelled to bend over to Brussels whether on issues of emissions or immigration mandates.

    They need to just hard Brexit, then the EuroWeasels will be more “flexible”

    It will be alright, I promise

    @Liberal Mormon,

    Who would you have to replace Trump?

    Poor lady, P M May inherited a thankless job when the British voted for Brexit. Her own party was split on the issue, and Labour did not want to cooperate. For those who think Brexit is wonderful, a major British steelmaker has gone into administration (bankruptcy) because the are losing a major market in Europe.

    Let's hope Trump follows her example.

    It’s a good thing. Maybe now, the U K can escape the horrid European union and put a halt to the Middle East invasion.
