I don't believe you mate - for all your praise of Germany - they need us more than we need them - they are export driven - they sell us more than double what we sell to them - Europe is a basket case - Italian banks and Greece are more or less bankrupt and there is only so much money you can print to turn things around - so when politicians all over Europe say the UK is doomed (a country that is still showing positive gdp by the way) take it with a very large pinch of salt - Europe needs us out of the single market like a hole in the head atm - the pressure is on Germany, France et al not the UK - We will get the Brexit terms we want make no mistake about it.
living up to your name! premier Foods is a totally British company headquartered here and Tate& Lyle is a global company again British owned and with headquarters here. poor examples indeed. So who are these companies in Britain in which £100bn has been spent to change their domicile? I think we should be told of one or two!
Another patronizing Remoaner! The question was simple, as was the answer- and the biggest issue for many was Sovereignty. Tired of hearing about the 'Certainties' of an imploding EU & EURO. Italy's banks can NOT be saved, IMO, as their customers have already been swindled into swopping their cash for worthless Bank bonds, a miss-selling scandal that dwarfs anything seen so far & Beppo the comedian is the most popular politician.
Your understanding of the situation is rather suspect if you think Premier Foods and Tate and Lyle are British companies. Sure, we love to hate Germany, a country that has real potential and real democratic leadership.
It was revealing that in the 1st 9 months of 2016, foreign investors spent £100bn buying British listed companies, almost certainly spurred on by the weak GB pound. That trend seems likely to continue and begs the question for whom will these companies be operating in 5 years time?
Sadly it is ever apparent that those who voted Leave simply did not know what they were doing and acted on the advice of vested interests who did not represent ordinary people. Far from helping make us a more equal society it will aid those who wish to increase the wealth of the elite.
I think buying British if you can , keeps the money in the U.K. and does not line the pockets of Germany , whose Politicians are no friends of this Country . Let's be honest , Germany still has the ambition of taking over Europe at the expense of Italy , Portugal , Spain , Greece etc who since the Euro took over has virtually destroyed their economies .A federal Europe was a big mistake ! Thank heavens we are trying to escape from it .It will all end in disaster .I support Premier Foods, Tate and Lyle and other U.K. manufacturers .
I am fed with people telling me what I should buy with the money I have earned and paid taxes on. I am not a Nationalist nor do I suggest that foreign capital should be prevented from investing in the UK.
I have seen a massive increase in footfall at my local Tesco - which is only half a mile from Aldi - people are now beginning to realise that you don't have to go trawling through food items written in Arabic or German and then queue up at a till where the assistants throw stuff through at breakneck speed and then ask for cash as there is no credit card facility - that is just hassle that most people can do without especially as there is barely any difference in price now anyway - Retail Sales figures out tomorrow - my guess is that they are going to be good - if they are then Tesco will go up big time imo - we shall see dyor etc
I am seeing increased footfall at Tesco Formby , Tesco Litherland , and the Tesco at Liverpool University . Perhaps people are fed up with threats from Europe , and finally deciding to support British business . BRING BACK A BUY BRITISH CAMPAIGN ,be it Tesco , Morrisons or Sainsbury .
see post below - I said in a previous post that Tesco will use its economies of scale with suppliers and sell more items but still reduce costs and this is what is happening - Dave Lewis has got the number of Aldi and Lidl et al - the game is up for these companies and Tesco is on the up - I am looking at £2.50 plus by Christmas/New Year - dyor etc
LONDON, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Two years after an accounting scandal plunged Tesco into the worst crisis in its 97-year history, the British supermarket looks set to reassert its dominance, given the edge by a transformed relationship with suppliers.
Monthly industry data shows Tesco is once again pulling ahead of rivals in Britain under a plan led by boss Dave Lewis, where lower prices and improvements in store have led to more goods being sold to more customers.
