Airbust: Plane Stupid EU Spin Contradiction

Airbus UK, who employ 16,000 people in Britain, have given a gentle warning about leaving the EU: “The best way to guarantee this is by remaining part of the EU.”

In light of JCB saying it would be no biggie to leave, and the CBI organising companies to come out in favour of staying in, Airbus have put down a marker. Just a shame it completely contradicts to all the other markers the company have have put down in the past. Here is what their Chief Executive said in January 2014:

“Clearly we have a massive investment in the UK and I don’t think there has ever been a plan to change that. The key issue is for the UK to continue to be a competitive place to do business. Profitable trade and political union are not joined at the hip. Russian and American companies trade with companies in Europe without being part of a political union. Business investment depends on profits not politics.”

Guido could not agree more…

I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit…”
