    Default Steel, fisheries among other industries that are low priority post Brexit

    The price to be paid for Brexit. I do apologise for the Daily Fail link, but the original article in the Tims is behind a paywall

    Ministers split industry into high, medium, low priorities | Daily Mail Online

    So much for saving the steel industry or fishing.

    So the demographic who voted for Brexit are to be punished. Fair enough, really.

    Hardly the golden economic future promised, is it?

    Anyway seems rather arse about face to prioritise car-making but not steel.

    I see the main business opportunity as trafficking unemployed Brexit supporters to Romanian brothels.

    I thought the steel industry was dead?

    Fishing is a weird one? I guess fishing might be higher up the EU's priorities, when it comes to the EU member states already plundering the fish from UK waters?

    We'll be digging it out with our hands soon enough when the cost of raw imports hit home.
    We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.

    They can still have our fish just so long as it comes from the UK fleet.

    Company high efficiency = the maximum profit for the least amount effort

    That looks like a positive response from the clientele, so it's either 2,000 up front, or 4,000 from your first six month's earnings.
