    10% tariff on cars imported from the EU if there's no trade deal, isn't it?

    But will Boris cave in to get a deal?

    And that's only one Company, wait until the figures from other large manufacturers outwith the motoring sector emerge.

    Looks like we may have voluntarily award ourselves the title "The poor man of Europe". :oops:

    I seem to remember the blonde bullsh*ter saying the deal was 'oven ready'... but what does that actually mean?

    I doubt even Boris knows what he meant when he said that.

    Some things should be popped in the oven...?

    It's a shame we don't have a honest competent government - one that had been helpful in pointing out what fr**it means to the country; food, standards, fuel/energy, trade tariffs, medicines, research etc, also of course the fact if we want to sell to other countries/marketplaces we'll have to meet their standards anyway, and of course as we're such a large global market place that everyone will cut us a good deal as we'll be such a huge buyer, err compared to err somewhere like europe, then how of course it means how we'll all be better off for it?

    The joke is that if it is oven ready, you don't need to use a microwave - why would you !!!
