Nissan Close Barcelona Factory, Centre Production at Sunderland

Nissan’s restructuring plan cements its Sunderland plant at the heart of the Japanese manufacturing giant’s European strategy, despite Brexit. Today it has been revealed that the manufacturer’s second largest plant, Barcelona, is bing shut down losing all 3,000 jobs at the Spanish site. Meanwhile the consolidation means that 6,000 jobs are being protected in the North East of England. Despite Brexit.

It had previously been reported that production of two Renault models is moving out of Spain and to Nissan’s Sunderland plant in order to streamline production in what has been a rocky year for the automotive industry globally. This isn’t what the experts said would happen post-Brexit…

Nissan Invests £400 Million In Sunderland Despite Brexit

Nissan has announced it will build their new ‘Qashqai’ model in its Sunderland plant, despite Britain having left the EU and Brussels threatening tariffs. The same Nissan that took Vote Leave to court for claiming the firm would “stay in the UK whatever the result of the referendum.”

As part of the almost half-billion pound investment, last week a new £52 million production line was announced in order to build the new model, guaranteeing high skilled manufacturing jobs to workers in the North East. Project fear continues to fall to pieces…

Getting Brexit Done Has Confidence Surging

On the eve of Brexit the CEBR/YouGov consumer confidence index has jumped 2.9 points to 107.7 – a surge in optimism, pushing consumer confidence to a 16-month high. So much for the “immediate economic aftershock” we were told to expect by George Osborne…

Voters are more confident about their finances and job security than they were a year ago. They are even more optimistic than they were a month ago. The Boris bounce is strong…

Business Confidence Booms as Threat of Corbyn Dies

The CBI’s rolling survey of British business confidence in the UK has seen optimism in British factories hit its highest level since 2014; leaping from -44 in October to +23 in January. Prizes for guessing what event in between may have triggered the leap…

The leap – coming only a week before Britain finally Brexits – is confirmation that growth is settling into top gear since the pre-Election uncertainty was ended, and once again undermines the arguments of remainers with the biggest quarterly swing since records began in 1958. The Boris bounce in action proving the gloomsters and doomsters wrong…

In well-timed #DespiteBrexit news, Tim Martin has announced he will be creating 10,000 jobs from a new £200 million investment in his pubs and hotels. Unfortunately, there aren’t any new pubs planned in Leicester South where Jonathan Ashworth will be wanting to drown his sorrows today…

The 10,000 jobs will be injected into mainly small and medium-sized towns, including:

  • Bourne in Lincolnshire
  • Waterford in Ireland
  • Hamilton in Scotland
  • Ely in Cambridgeshire
  • Diss in Norfolk
  • Felixstowe in Suffolk
  • Newport Pagnell in Buckinghamshire
  • Prestatyn in North Wales

Tory target seats?…

Jaguar Land Rover Continues Investing at Full Speed

Far from what the gloomsters proffer, the UK’s car industry looks like it’s shifting into top gear as Britain speeds towards the Brexit finishing line; with the announcement by Jaguar Land Rover of a new three million-square-foot distribution centre in Leicestershire, supplying to 80 markets worldwide. Fueling confidence in global Britain…

The new campus is expecting to create a sizable number of new jobs in the area and shows Jaguar Land Rover plan on having a stake in Britain’s sizable car industry for many more years to come. Remainers must be quite exhausted and tired of making wrong predictions, Guido doesn’t think they’ll give us a brake any time soon…
