    Problem is people don't want to buy British. They'd rather save 15% on inferior products from the continent or worse – save 40% by buying in from the far east. I offer people chairs that are 100% green with a carbon footprint of 0 however they don't want to spend that money. They'd rather save 60% buying from china, where the footprint exceeds the cost of the chair itself… Not to mention the ethical issues of supporting the CCP..

    You won. You got your Brexit. Now enjoy the sunlit uplands with frolicking unicorns. Weird that nobody claims ownership for this titanic victory. I wonder why?

    I find this truly remarkable. You completely screwed over manufacturing via Brexit, and now you want that manufacturing saves your sorry rear ends?

    Mass mortgage lending fraud in Australia. PM Scott Morrison voted 26 times AGAINST a Banking Royal commission. Watch the Denise Brailey "bombshell" video on Youtube before investing in Australia.

    Manufacturing has "well paid jobs". I am not sure I agree with that, although, of course, it all depends upon one's references. I found that as a skilled aerospace engineer my income was low compared to other "professions", such as law, medicine and "financial services". Most folk in England don't really know what "an engineer" is. They lump engineers, technicians and production assemblers as one ugly and rather unappealing mess.

    Why Japan and Germany can build up the world most competitive manufacturing sectors after the WWII, whilst Britain on the other hand, on the losing side of our once brilliant industry?

    Economic is a shamble across the rich, they are getting richer out of printing and borrowed money to fill they needs, and we the tax payer's and savers pick out the bill, not Government. Blessings 🙏 Amen 😔 😔➕

    The Treasury could easily increase investment in UK businesses by giving tax breaks to investors. It won't of course, they don't want well paid workers in quality manufacturing.

    We don’t produce much, loads of British manufacturers have already moved to Eastern European countries pre Brexit.

    Judging the economy on one month's figures is misguided. One swallow doth not a Summer make.

    The wealth-creating private sector never stopped during lockdown. But a lot of people took their long-overdue annual leave this Summer – LOTS of it. I know people who've had three holidays this Summer because they were nearing burnout and fed up.

    Manufacturing recue the economy??? Like fuck nobody wants a job. At my factory we are crying out for staff we pay decent wages have a good reputation but people just dint want to know

  21. @johnnyboy2459

    Nothing to do with brexit. It's cause of Covid and the fact we employed waaaaay too many EU members!!!!

  22. @tonydalton6756

    January 25, 2024 at 12:40 am

    The government has been destroying our manufacturing sector for 50 years. I'm surprised we have any left.

  23. @sjfarrell2.03

    January 25, 2024 at 12:40 am

    What manufacturing? We have imported 30% more from China since the scamdemic began, not less. And you need raw materials to manufacture stuff. Forget electronics because China owns 85% of the world's rare earth mines. And does anybody think our youth with their worthless degrees are going to work in factories? 😂

    Not now we've had Brexit, focus will be on services and digit exports to Indo-Pacific region.

    January 25, 2024 at 12:40 am

    When will people realise the reality of the situation where in ANY western country that thinks it can complete at any level with China is deluding itself until it realises what needs to happen… China's success is not based on anything other than it has a first world infrastructure with third world wages, property is 43 times the average wage… If you want to compete with China you will need those circumstances in your country…

    When you spend multiple years ripping out the heart of your own country to use slave labour from other countries, then eventually you will have to reap what you sow.
    I take care of my own home not my neighbours, British industries would have done well to learn this, instead of chasing money for the sake of chasing money.

    Not if foreign are continually allowed to buy out key companies especially America and China asset strippers. Why does American companies have a strangle hold on food manufacture and supply. Why are these companies allowed to continue without paying appropriate taxes?

    Creating a cutting edge manufacturing (Like Mittelstand) is a long process. You cannot create a mamufacturing region with just one click. You need to change your education system to create skilled workers.

    There is a Facebook.group called Buy British Made – more is manufactured here than you think. We should buy British.
    We need to stop pushing kids into university and instead encourage them to take up apprenticeships so there won't be a skills shortage.

    Margaret Thatcher proudly closed 90% of industrial Britain in the 1980s and turned our great country into a ‘service’ industry. Skilled Engineers from the Welsh Valleys told told to get a job at a Call Centre on half the wages.

    And the Conservatives disinvestment in education and apprenticeships in the 90s and 20s was the final nail in the coffin.

    As far as the UK is concerned the plan has worked very well, with our importation of aliens stacked on covid we are well and truly screwed and exactly where we are supposed to be.
    It is ok though, the government is here to help, trust them.

    FTSE 100 last 5 years grow 4.58%, Dow Jones Industrial last 5 years 91.82%. Hopefully, it means that the British stock market is healthier.

  36. @derrenlambert2279

    January 25, 2024 at 12:40 am

    No….because the Government is raiding tax coffers at every opportunity, hence NI and tax increases, once they get enough in the pot, they will raid it again… this is a money grab by a corrupt government.

    Boris's obsession for inefficient, extremely expensive green energy is what going to shit on the economy.

  38. @nwk-wt3ty

    January 25, 2024 at 12:40 am

    Businesses should be incentivised to hire British workers. Over reliance on labour from overseas is one of main factors.

  39. @donny121able

    January 25, 2024 at 12:40 am

    Yes it can be part of the recovery. We have needed to get back to manufacturing for years. Need to start educating the young ones that skilled labour and factory work is a good thing.

    A thing that triggered my brain was an advisor to the SNP advised emptying the hospital beds of the elderly—they did that and put them in carehomes with DNR notices with them and then pumped them full of MIDAZOLAM!?!? MURDERED!!!

    The UK is the only country in the world to sell off it defence companies. Very we manufacture is foreign owned.. They could leave the UK at anytime.
    The government only interested in keeping the city happy..
