The damage is done

Proof was hardly needed that the 61 per cent of Mackems who voted Leave were turkeys voting for Christmas, but it's duly arrived with the news that Nissan, whose factory is a cornerstone of the local economy, have announced a freeze on investment amid fears that tariffs on exports to Europe will increase significantly in the wake of Brexit. One suspects (or hopes) that some people will be waking up to the cold, hard reality of the events they've brought about - but, with Theresa May announcing that the process of triggering Article 50 will begin by March at the latest, there doesn't seem to be any going back now.
