    What he said - Honda now seem to be saying they believe Cost of Manufacture in Japan + shipping to EU is in their view going to be less than Cost of manufacture in UK + shipping to EU. As the only possible cost differential is expected tariffs (I am sure Japanese car workers get at least as much as Swindon ones)

    "Jihadi Bride" story

    I have to say I have kept out of this thread until now as I was waitng for more info. My initial thoughts were "she was only 15" but the more of her statements and comments I hear the more I am in total agreement with Saintslass - her comment that the Manchester Bombings were bad but retaliaition for the same thing happening "over there" were the finalo straw for me. Her child can come back and she can be allowed to a military jail on cyprus for questioning etc if she can make her way to a UK consulate under her own steam first as not worth risking anyones life on getting her out

    The very man For Private Baldrick's and my sanity as someone with knowledge of the medical industry - do you beleive the talk of drugs shortages is fact or fiction and do you think if they exist they will be life threatening ?

    As an aside whilst trying to find the answer to Private Baldrick's question re "which drugs" I found another example of govt stupidity and over reliance on IT (not that brexit related except this is the system to meet the Falsified Medicines Directive which links into an EU wide database of medicines), it seems all Pharmacists had to install a new whizzy IT system but the drugs packaging doesnt comply with the systems needs https://www.pharmaceutical-journal.com//news-and-analysis/news/fmd-system-goes-down-on-its-first-working-weekday/20206139.fullarticle?firstPass=false#cxrecs_s Lila Thakerar, superintendent pharmacist at Shaftesbury Pharmacy in Harrow, north west London, said her pharmacy had spent at least £2,500 on the hardware required for the FMD and fulfilled all other requirements in order to be ready for its implementation on 9 February 2019. “We are ready to use our scanners except there’s a major hurdle — the products that are coming in are not FMD compliant,” she said. “So far, [I have] tens of thousands of dispensary stock, of which only one product is FMD compliant.”

    Well i am not a pharmacist but I do remember seeing that Novodisc who are apprently the largest supplier of insulin to the UK were actually trying to build up a 4 mth supply rather than the suggested 6 weeks when that was originally mentioned - at the time people (well leave voters) said they wer eplaying to project fear and over reacting. So let's hope they did lay down 4 mths worth and 6 month delays are an over statement as Insulin is most definately in the "life saving drugs" category. Other than that i would GUESS the biggest issue would be drugs with a short shelf life that can't be stored easily for long periods of time - again I am not a pharmacist. I know the special tablets my wife needs are already in short supply with her only being given 1/4 of the number prescribed from the single pharmacy in the entire of Reading that had any in stock (they are rationing as they are getting all the demand and have no extra supply) - hers are not life threatening but dibillatating if she does not get (she would have to take time off work)

    There is a difference between purposefully allowing people to die and through incompetance failing to plan for the previously unthinkable (a no deal Brexit) until too late and through that lack of planning cause a situation where people do die

    Well as CKN works in that area I am more willing to beleive his assertions that this is reality than just trust that in this area our so far proven incompetant govt has got something right

    How long can a temporary medicine shortage be before it turns deadly and how many lives in Brexit worth ? And i do actually mean that as a direct question

    In the comments above which you have referred to as an Opnion piece you will notice that the word MAY is actually relating to the fact that in the case of a No Deal we MAY be looking at 6 months instead of the 6 wks disruption previously forecast - it is logically impossible from what is written in the article to draw the conclusion that there may be no disruption what they are saying is "previously we thought 6 weeeks but now looking at it again it could be as much as 6 mths" this is now putting the prior forecast of 6 weeks of disruption to medicine supplies as a best case scenario in case of no deal rather than a likely end point

    Yes i would go with the main discriminator or being the answer to the question "Do you see competition from the outside world as a threat or opportunity ?" What you define as outside world is a function of your age/upbringing/location
