This was at the Leavers rally in Wetherspoons at Harrowgate on Saturday.
It's not you is it Hudswell? ;-)

Actually I found it quite sad but as you can see from the vidèo most of them agree with his comments.

Yes Hudswell I did, it is amazing we have the Engineers to design and build Formula 1 racing cars but not the skills to build an electric car; come on, who does he think he's fooling. Leavers keep saying the UK can trade with the world so why has he got to open his factory in Singapore to do it?

Hudswell

You should really read up on the man himself. He spat his dummy out because the EU said he (and other manufacturer's) had to improve the efficiency of the motors on their vacuum cleaners to use less electricity which benefited "Joe Publc" and also helps cut the carbon footprint. Until then he was a supporter of the EU and a keen advocate of the UK joining the Euro.
Same with Bamford of JCB who was another supporter of the EU until JCB were fined for breaking anti trust laws and hit with a fine of over €39 million.
There's always more to it than meets the eye.

So you don't think it's anything to do with Singapore signing a new Free Trade Deal with the EU then?

I think for us simple types a fully explanation is perhaps required 😳
I don't think so but you can always Google tax avoidance and Brexit. :-)

The EU made it plain it was bringing in rules and regulations to stop tax avoidance and. Money laundering - which would detrimentally affect the City of London traders who verge on the illegal - allowing, for example, Russian money to be invested into schemes to launder it....

Rees-Mogg and many others, would be seriously affected by such a move and his vehicle would NOT want such imposed restrictions.

There are many who believe that the momey men have sold us all down the river to finance and back brexit for purely selfish reasons.

Hudswell, you knew this....

I'm sure he did but then again you wouldn't find that sort of information in the right wing press. ;-)

The National Crime Agency is investigating Arron Banks and his Leave.EU campaign for alleged offences committed at the 2016 EU referendum.
Mr Banks and another senior campaign figure, Liz Bilney, were referred to the agency by the Electoral Commission.
The watchdog said it suspected Mr Banks was not the "true source" of loans to the campaign and the money had come "from impermissible sources".

No but you will find plenty of it in the left wing socilist press...and you really think that this was a reason why 52% of those that voted, voted to leave....getting desperate boys..
The 52% took advice and leads from a small number of people - mainly Boris, Farage, Gove, Rees-Mogg and others.... perhaps ones who had a vested interest?

Hudswell
Have you ever wondered what the most vociferous leavers who just happen to own the media shouting the loudest about Brexit have in common (apart from being billionaires); that's right they're all tax exiles and perhaps a clamp down on tax avoidance may not suit them just like it won't suit quite a number who are members of the ERG.

I agree about the voting though I'm sure given the opportunity those who sat at home thinking remain was a forgone conclusion won't do that again.
Have you ever wondered why all these self exciled media barons are pushing so hard for Brexit while other independent right leaning media outlets are pushing to remain; just a thought.
