To mark the anniversary of triggering Article 50, Stratford4Europe are asking the constituents of Stratford-on-Avon, “Is Brexit Worth It?”.
Designed to open dialogue, Stratford4Europe are asking people if, one year on, is Brexit really worth it? Is it worth the risk to our local economy which relies on the agriculture, automotive and hospitality industries? Is it worth the rising food and petrol prices? Is it worth the risk to our NHS? Is it worth the risk to our relationships within the Union, with Ireland and with our European friends and partners?
In the first of a series of questions, Stratford4Europe quotes the recently released impact study on the automotive industry and invites debate as to whether Brexit is worth the risk of damage to our local economy?
“There are no advantages to be gained from Brexit for the automotive industry for the foreseeable future. The negotiations are an exercise in damage limitation. The Government should acknowledge this and be pragmatic in seeking for the sector as close as possible a relationship with the existing EU regulatory and trading framework to provide for volume car making – one of our great manufacturing success stories – a hopeful future.”
