With all the excitement going on, I forgot to say anything about those Japanese car people last week. Apparently they have some sort of mega car plant in Sunderland (where’s that?) and have been making noises about investing elsewhere in Europe going forward. Considering most of the locals voted for Brexit I can’t say I blame them, but better keep quiet on that front. Anyway it would seem we’ve bunged them some sort of assurance under the table that everything is going to be fine.
I wonder what exactly we said? I wonder if anyone else will want something similar? And what it might cost if everything goes tits up? Probably best not to ask and worry about it all later. And of course the deal’s not secret – we’re just not letting anyone see it!
