Well UK car factories tend to be more efficient than French, Italian & Spanish factories, no strikes. I could go on....... oh & closing UK factories will have a huge write down so won't happen in the foreseeable future. I guess it will be down to if EU robots are cheaper than Chinese ones, Interestingly NIKON bought a small UK manufacture of robotic equipment.
Right, because being ranked 15th or there about, with not much separating it from them is confidence inspiring....

And there is no need for huge write downs either because the way capital allowances works in the U.K. means that maximum write offs are up front and in the early years.

In any case the critical issue is where invest goes in the coming years and the deal with the EU will be a critical factor for companies targeting the European market.
