Bombardier: May 'bitterly disappointed' as US tariff puts jobs at risk


Here in the UK we're getting a little taste of life after we've left the EU following El Trumpo's decision to slap a 219% tariff on Bombardier, so jeopardising 4,000 jobs in the North of Ireland. More to the point, the government actually played this deal straight down the line, landed it fairly and squarely but still ordinary working people might suffer because of the whim of a fat orange idiot. Without influence as part of the worlds largest trading block, we're just back to being a small island with an over-inflated opinion of itself and at the mercy of the likes of Trump.

This is our world now.

We won't have the EU as an alternative market, that's what it's got to do with it - if there's a comparable product from an EU manufacturer, that's what EU airlines will buy.

The point of Brexit is to make the UK a dependency of the US, and this tariff shows how the US treats its dependencies.

Now where the hell did that come from? I thought and believe that the point of Brexit was to open up avenues to the developing world, of course a positive trade deal with the US would be great and in the interests of both countries.
There are quite a few points to Brexit, not least the control of how many people come here and the necessity to train our own people when the parasitic economic policy of "Free movement" is abandoned.

You thought wrong. The point of it was to retain the tax fiddles being used by the mega-rich (threatened after 2019 by EU tax harmonization rules) and sneak in a Nazi-style enabling law to make a wholesale bonfire of all the progressive legislation created in the last 200 years.

No new trade deal with non-EU countries is on the horizon, and several countries (Australia, |Japan, New Zealand for three) have recently snubbed the UK to make deals with the EU instead. If the US was interested in a "positive trade deal" this prohibitive tariff wouldn't have been imposed. They're treating the UK as another Honduras.

But then you already knew that. A fascist banana republic isn't likely to go after people torturing dogs for money.

A loss of jobs in UK if this happens, but let's just add a few facts.
Bombardier Transportation is the rail equipment division of the Canadian firm Bombardier Inc. Its headquarters are in Berlin.

It would be just as easy for Canada or Germany to have prevented this work being done in UK. And, the withdrawal may be America 'getting at' UK, or Germany, or Canada.

And, despite the opening comment, this is happening while we are part of the EU trading bloc.

When Bush put up the steel tariffs threatening UK jobs the WTO ruled against them the US totally ignored the ruling (clue: they don't care). Then the EU came in to back us up, threatened tariffs on US imports and hey presto! Bush backed down.

This collective bargaining is gone, and expecting the EU to back us up now when our incompetent government is flailing around in the Brexit negations and royally pissing johnny foreigner off, is either being a tad naive or wilfully ignorant.

Nope, we've taken back control and are on our own. Triffic, isn't it?

Okay, I've read that.
It seems this is triggered because of disputes between USA & Canada (something I suggested above).
It is also clear that the arguments about relative market size are exactly the same ones that those in favour of Brexit have been making about the future EU/UK trade position.

Right back to the title. In the last 15 months the pound has fallen against the euro from 1.31 to 1.13. A drop of over 13%. It has also fallen against the Dollar. These have caused a rise in almost everything we purchase, not only in International trade but on the shelves at the supermarket and at the petrol pumps. These rises affect everyone irrespective of their income. People with surplus can carry these rises, people on the breadline struggle ....... or get into debt.

I take your point Steve and perhaps you're right, I acted impetuously as I was so utterly pissed of with the Jim/Ake show spilling onto this thread for no reason at all. But... I wouldn't go to the mods as I see little reason why they should be bothered with this playground crap; they have a difficult enough job as it is.

I don't mind the combative and sometimes harsh discussions; it's the way we debate in the UK. What I object to is the constant dragging of unconnected information into these threads as a way of cheap point scoring during the pursuit of vendettas. It's rude, ignorant and not a little sad. That bystanders have to egg the protagonists on is equally depressing...

The point of Brexit is to work our way out to all the economic problems which afflict us...to do so, we need the contribution of all our people and the markets which WE chose.....the parasitical reliance on immigrant labour is unsustainable in the long term. Alongside this new marketing strategy, we also need to urgently reform the education system and instigate proper training schemes for our people.
Party politics will never provide this....too many ideological stoppers. We need to work together, business and labour, to make a success of this venture.

If ideological obstructions cause us to fail our grandchildren will regard us as stupid and selfish.

A speech the Bard put in the mouth of one of England's most difunctional kings who screwed his way through every woman he could get his hands on, was totally incapable of controlling the plots against him mainly instigated by his two sons, Richard and John who were scrabbling for control of the throne, and who was forced to imprison his wife, Eleanor (known as 'the democratic drawbridge who went down for everybody') in a tower for 360 days of the year to stop her servicing all the male members of his court and poisoning his lovers

"Jim...I didn't get the last thread closed,"
One of the last postings on the thread was your gratuitous "mindless twats" - a sort of slightly more intelligent version of "OCD Spunktrumpets"
I get tired of the slagging off by people like you, Ake and Teribus who reduce arguments to this level
Some of these subjects are complex and can't be dealt with superficially
I argue about the things I care about and I take these arguments to the lengths I believe they merit
I occasionally overstate my case, but I don't think I am gratuitously insulting - I have certainly never sunk to the level of your last depressing posting.
This forum is regularly being used as a platform for racism and hatred by a few people
There used to be a couple of Muslims at one time - there aren't now, I would hate to be gay and receive the waves of hatred and contempt of Akes diatribes - I know of intelligent Irish friends who washed their hands of this forum after some of the racism that was put up lst year.
I enjoy being here and I benefit greatly from much of the information that is put up - the generosity of some members still knocks me over
You talk of "many" the way you did of "people are fed up with you mindless twats" as if you had been elected spokesman
You like me and everybody else, speak only for ourselves
I argue passionately sometimes, and when I do, I put up as much information as I think necessary (it has often been complained that I put too much up)
That, as far as I am concerned, is what debating is about.
I wanted to end my comment on Ake's complaint about being slandered and move on - you and Stu have blown it up into a major altercation and your last posting has dragged it right down to schoolyard level
If this thread is closed, it is that which will have turned the key

As Mr Juncker has recently made perfectly clear. Brexit will bring about change, but remaining in the EU would also have brought about change, with ever closer union, creation of a EU army, forcing all members into a single financial authority (virtually impossible without first forcing the remaining members into adopting the Euro).
At least with Brexit we get to choose which changes we make.

Don't forget the rest of the speech, Iains. It finishes:
That England, that was wont to conquer others,
Hath made a shameful conquest of itself.

I read you the first time!

How you equate demanding Independence with "Hath made a shameful conquest of itself" rather escapes me I am afraid. Demonstrates the dangers of quoting poetry I suppose.
Try this one instead!

This land of such dear souls, this dear dear land,
Dear for her reputation through the world,
Is now leased out, I die pronouncing it,
Like to a tenement or pelting farm:
England, bound in with the triumphant sea
Whose rocky shore beats back the envious siege
Of watery Neptune, is now bound in with shame,
With inky blots and rotten parchment bonds:

Far more accurate I would say.

Who wants to play next?

Both poems/quotes seem to picture 'England' as surrounded by sea(s).

Maybe they meant 'Britain'!

Nice try but I am not convinced!
