Soubry’s Big Nissan-derstanding

Nissan are on the record saying they won’t leave Britain post-Brexit and have been at pains not to scaremonger about the referendum. So they were a bit put out by Anna Soubry using their reception in parliament last night to preach doom on their behalf. The event had nothing to do with Europe, but Soubs misjudged the tone and told guests how leaving the EU will cause a “disaster for manufacturing” and result in “an immediate 10% tariff on Nissan cars”. Her speech was heckled by a number of Tory MPs including Michael Fabricant, who shouted “complete rubbish!”. Soubry curtly replied “we know you don’t agree but everyone else here does”, to which another two Tory MPs shouted “we don’t!”. Guests say the Nissan representatives present were not impressed with their event being hijacked by an overtly politicised speech. A simple gag about SamCam’s Micra would have been much more appropriate…
