Airbus threatens thousands of job losses over ‘no deal’ Brexit

Political Correspondent

It’s not an idle threat, it’s the dawning reality of Brexit, says Airbus. The government insists it isn’t expecting a no-deal scenario, but the official negotiating position is still that no deal better than a bad deal. And Airbus believes that would be so terrible it might have to leave the country, and with it thousands of high-tech jobs would disappear. More scaremongering from a company owned by Europe, say the Brexiteers.
