    ... and yet when all is settled what will have changed - more than likely nothing.

    ....nobody will until all the cards are played and the game is finished mate, anything else is speculation and agenda driven. The building sector is full of eastern europeans as is the hospitality sector as is the custodial sector etc etc. all of whom don't know the outcome so are we going to see millions heading back over the channel. No.

    Ok but tech ? Do they think companies won't buy their stuff just because they work in the UK ?
    I know people can be petty but like this ?

    I don't think Brexit will have any real effect at all to be honest mate! Few people having jitters but hey such is life - the FTSE is going up so far so good

    I have to agree. Kinda thought people would have rolled their eyes and moved on after those doom and gloom pundits got shown up.

    and 68% of 904 uk suppliers weren't.



    How are UK supply chain mangers preparing for Brexit?
    Already mapping the potential costs of new tariffs 28% - good
    Strengthening our relationship with existing European suppliers 23% - excellent
    Performing a risk analysis exercise 44% - good
    Looking for alternative suppliers outside of the EU 21% - good
    Looking for alternative suppliers inside the UK 32%- good
    Pre-emptively increasing costs 12% - and consumers can look at alternatives if they find cheaper price structures from alternative suppliers!
    We have not done any work to prepare 23% - sounds a bit worrying for a commercial enterprise?

    Isn't this what companies do on a regular basis? I would imagine that any company that does not do market research is heading for a few problems.
