    Default UK car exports or imports, no I'm confused....

    Can someone from the hoping mad Brexit brigade tell me why we have ze Germans car export market over a barrel when UK manufactured car exports to the EU are so numerous?

    "MPs ask car executives for a breakdown of where the UK's cars are sold.

    Mike Hawes of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders says:

    UK car makers export just under 80% of the cars they produce
    56% of that goes to the rest of the EU
    The EU is 4x bigger than the US, which is the next biggest market for exports
    For EU car makers, 7% of their exports come to the UK
    The UK is the EU's second largest market for new cars"
    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.

    While I wholeheartedly agree with the sentiment, it's not polite to call other posters 'it'.

    Things have never been better! Two holidays a year, a Porsche on the drive. Beer in the fridge, bloody hell when I was kid, things where bad. When my Dad was a kid things where really bad.

    Don't fall into a spiral of negativity.

    But enough about Brillo's exes. What are you going to do when you can barely scrape together enough coupons for a chlorinated chicken drumstick?

    They should have asked that prior to the referendum.
    Brexit: Pay more to get less and having less money to pay for it.
    Brexiters: I want the rest of the UK to suffer and deprive the young of their future.
