Lidl Won’t Discount Brexit Britain

German supermarket giant Lidl is massively expanding its UK operations after being granted planning permission for a new state-of-the-art 240,000 sq foot headquarters in Tolworth, West London. The announced permission had been granted last Friday. The final hurdle before beginning construction is to secure a rubber stamp from Sadiq Khan in the New Year.

The retailer also plans to plough millions into projects outside the South East: earlier this month it said it would develop a £70 million distribution centre in Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Both developments are expected to generate hundreds of jobs.

Trade mag Construction Enquirer reports this morning:

“Lidl plans to invest £1.5 bn over three years on expanding its store and logistics network to 1,500 stores despite Brexit. It currently trades from 640.”

A huge sign of confidence in Brexit Britain from an iconic German firm…

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
