    Fact is, increasingly people are seeing Brexit as a mistake.

    Most Brits now think Brexit was a mistake, European Parliament president Antonio Tajani says | The Independent

    If the trend continues it is pretty obvious what is to become of Brexit.

    It is a reason why leaving the customs union and single market is a bad idea. See:

    23. Honda benefits from the simplicity of complying with a single regulatory regime across Europe, for the manufacture and sale of cars, as well as motorcycles and power products. The ability to place goods on the market across the EU on the basis of a single Type Approval is a particularly important benefit.

    24. Honda would like to see the continuation of the validity of pre-existing Type Approvals after Brexit, both those issued from any EU-27 Type Approval Authority and presented in the UK, as well as those issued by the UK’s Vehicle Certification Agency and presented in the EU-27. It should also remain possible to guarantee the validity of the extensions issued by the VCA after Brexit to pre-existing EU Type Approvals.

    25. The issue of the continuing validity of Type Approvals in a “Hard Brexit” scenario is of critical importance to Honda’s European operations and supplier base across EU-27 Member States. If EU and UK Type Approvals issued after Brexit are no longer mutually recognised, we would be unable to place products onto the market. Additionally, if approvals for parts and components are no longer recognised, we would face significant difficulties sourcing
    appropriately approved components from suppliers in the UK and EU. Both of these factors would have a very significant impact on our production activity.

    26. In order to mitigate this risk, and to ensure we are able to continue to place vehicles on the EU market, Honda would either have to relocate Type Approval activity to another Member State, or the UK would have to negotiate to ensure that the EU continues to recognise UK Type Approvals – and vice versa.
    Your curious tangents around profits and multinational corporations are an odd way of addressing the impact on trade that is around the corner.
