    If you bothered to check, this was the "official" announcement following the end of the consultation process.

    So no, its not "old news".

    Even though they said its nowt to do with brexit. They said it, out loud, when it would actually have been the easiest thing in the world to blame and divert ill-feelings towards their brand.

    They only make the civic there and the UK market is tiny compared to elsewhere - it'll end up being made where its cheapest with a high demand market

    They closed it again just so brexit can be blamed as well as the economic reasons behind the first closure.

    I think the British public should respond by boycotting all Hondas.

    It might make car manufacturers think twice

    Well done the EU.
  18. You don't know who Unipres also supply car parts too, do you?

    If constant concerns to Nissan won't cause us to lose jobs and work then the loss of Honda pretty much is determined to it seems.

    Mind you I am only agency so I know nothing about how much the loss of a supplier will hurt us or what will happen if Nissan downgrade us to a Level 3 supplier.
