OUR minds boggle that the same Remoaners who claim Brexit was sold on “lies” now falsely blame it for Honda leaving Swindon.
They even dispute the car giant’s own bosses bluntly and repeatedly spelling out that it “is not related to Brexit”.

It simply must be. They need it to be.
The facts, though, are that Japan no longer needs to make cars in Europe because the EU trade deal it has finally signed will cut its export tariffs to zero.
Hence its Turkish plant closing too.
Meanwhile the UK factory has struggled for years, making far fewer cars than it once did, with sales falling and the war on diesels forcing Honda to refocus on electric vehicles.
It is vital that Government incentives and a low-tax economy lure another big employer to Swindon to prevent these devastating and traumatic job losses.
But it is grim to see some Remainers concerned only with weaponising them against Brexit, while sniggering that the Wiltshire town voted Leave.
Honda CEO confirms it’s only UK car plant will shut in 2021, with the loss of 3,500 jobs from the Swindon factory
BREXIT uncertainty is spooking some firms. But they’re a minority judging by the remarkably rosy new pay and jobs figures.
Wages up 3.4 per cent, their fastest since 2008. And with inflation down to 1.8 per cent, those pay rises count.

Employment is at a record high of 32.6million. Falling unemployment, at four per cent, is the lowest since 1975.
How do Remainers explain it all, if Brexit is already destroying our economy? Oh, wait . . . we know this one:
Bad news is down to Brexit. Good news is because Brexit hasn’t happened yet.
Brit no more
SAJID Javid has done us a huge service by stripping Shamima Begum of citizenship.
She knew all about the atrocities of IS but flew out anyway to support them as they beheaded aid workers, raped children and burned women to death.

Even now this remorseless teenager justifies the Manchester bombing.
She must not return. So it is great to see the Home Secretary take such swift and bold action.
Well done, The Saj.

HERE are Labour’s two words of sneering defiance over the departures of seven of its more sensible MPs: “Derek Hatton”.
On the day Luciana Berger and her friends abandoned it, the party ended its 33-year ban on perhaps the most odious and toxic political figure of the 1980s.

And that is precisely where Corbyn is leading those “moderates” still feebly defending Labour as a “broad church”.
Back to 1985, to refight all the old battles.
Except this time Militant Tendency isn’t expelled. It’s in charge.
What is The Independent Group and why did seven Labour MPs quit the party in protest against Jeremy Corbyn?
