Airbus CEO says hard Brexit would mean "painful decisions" for United Kingdom operations

POLITICS Brexit

The Treasury just announced a Swiss-UK insurance deal after Brexit - which amounts to one deal, for one sector, for one country, for things to carry on as they are.

Many large companies in Britain have warned of the dangers of leaving without a deal, fearing the uncertainty and disruption that would bring.

Tom Enders' sharply worded statement comes as business leaders increasingly express their frustration at the lack of progress in securing a Brexit deal ahead of Britain's scheduled March 29 exit from the bloc. On release front today, United Kingdom market will see the release of gross mortgage approvals while the US market will see the release of new home sales data and Core durable goods order data.

Liam Fox, himself an early Brexit supporter, has in the past argued that a "no deal would be better than a bad deal", and he is on a mission to convince other partners to buy into an orphaned UK Plc. after the March Brexit deadline.

Michael Hodson, the director of asset management and investment banking, issued the stark warning to financial businesses, saying it will not provide an insurance policy to firms for "inadequate" Brexit planning.

Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May is also working to secure a deal to ensure a smooth departure from the European Union, her spokesman said Thursday. "We are happy to be forthright, as "no deal" would be catastrophic for Airbus".

"Make no mistake, there are plenty of countries out there who would love to build the wings for Airbus aircraft", he added.

This will then be followed by cold and bright weather on Monday, with heavy rain, gales and some snow likely from Monday night. Cloud and patchy rain reaching the far west, edging inland into Lochaber later with perhaps a few light snow flurries.

Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has refused to meet May to discuss Brexit until she rules out a no-deal option, and lawmakers outside government are seeking to block it.

The Central Bank of Ireland uses 88p to the euro as its sterling figure, but says this could slide to 96p-97p in a no-deal Brexit. But she has shown little willingness to make changes to her Brexit plan.

Sir Graham told The Sun: "It has been obvious for a long time that the most serious problem arising from the Withdrawal Agreement was a backstop arrangement that could trap Britain in the wrong relationship with the European Union in perpetuity". They also plan to vote on opposing deals, including efforts by groups of legislators to delay Britain's exit and to prevent a "no-deal" Brexit from even happening.

The Irish Times newspaper reported that the company has begun stockpiling products in Britain and taken more warehousing space as it works on the assumption that Britain will leave the European Union without a withdrawal agreement.

The minister told an audience of German industrialists that crashing out without a deal would be "a disaster for business", adding: "I really don't believe in this idea".

The Chancellor said: "In the 2016 referendum, a promise was made to the majority who voted for Brexit - that they were voting for a more prosperous future".
