Should we be surprised ? ?
 
More than half our “politicians” strongly support this rape of our (once) profitable world class sovereign nation state.

This gives another perspective on how good the EU has been for UK jobs!

Some have even used EU (taxpayer’s) money to drive UK jobs overseas.

1. Cadbury's moved its factory to Poland 2011

2. Ford Transit moved to Turkey 2013 with EU grant.

3. Jaguar Land Rover recently agreed to build a new plant in Slovakia, owned by Tata.

4. Peugeot closed its Ryton (was Rootes Group) plant and moved production to Slovakia.

5. The British Army's new Ajax fighting vehicles to be built in SPAIN using SWEDISH steel at the request of the EU to support jobs in Spain, rather than in Wales.

6. Crown Closures, Bournemouth (Was METAL BOX), gone to Poland, once employed 1,200.

7. Hornby, plus other toys and models, have gone abroad, along with patents.

8. Gillette has gone to eastern Europe.

9. Texas Instruments Greenock have gone to Germany.

10. Indesit at Bodelwyddan Wales has gone

11. Sekisui Alveo, Merthyr Tydfil Industrial Parkfoam plant is to relocate production to the Netherlands.

12. Hoover’s Merthyr factory moved to Czech Republic and the Far East, by Italian company Candy.

13. ICI integration into Holland’s Akzo Nobel with EU bank loan and within days of the merger, several factories in the UK, were closed, losing 3,500 jobs

14. Boot's has sold facilities to Stefano Pessin, who have based their HQ in Switzerland, avoiding tax to the tune of £80 million a year.

15. JDS Uniphase bought up UK companies using EU 'regeneration' grants, created a pollution nightmare and closed it all down leaving 1,200 jobless.

16. Many British invention patents have been passed to foreign companies, many of them in the EU.
