"Unilever plans to combine its U.K. and Dutch arms in a single British parent, reversing a previous plan to consolidate in the Netherlands".

But we were told that this kind of thing would never happen, even less so while the threat of a no deal Brexit was looming.

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

Oh dear. In fact, going further than this... Unilever leaving the UK was indicative of "Brexit bad". Don't worry though, we'll hear from the usual suspects this is still terrible news, or will be painted as a bad thing somehow.

Maybe you missed this critical paragraph:-

"The organizational streamlining wonít affect staffing levels or business activities in either country, it said. The headquarters of Unileverís foods and refreshment division, which represents around 40% of the companyís sales, will continue to be based in Rotterdam. The home care and beauty & personal care divisions will continue to be headquartered in the U.K."

So this has nothing to do with jobs. Much more likely to be ready to take advantage of the expected lower tax regime that a desperate UK is prepared to offer in an effort to shore up its economy.

Don't though let that stop anyone claiming it as Brexit victory.

I have not mentioned jobs anywhere.

I'm surprised that a company the size of Unilever would speculate on "desperate" tax moves to shore up the economy, if they are part of that economy. Strange management tactics.

During the Brexit process one of the major foreign corporations I think it was Japanese moved their London HQ to Europe. Much was made of it by the Remainers the number of jobs involved was 5.

I'm not bothered either way about these corporates they blamed Brexit for jobs losses now they will blame the virus. They always do what is best for them.

At least they will pay some tax. Many dont and recently it has proved fruitless not to.

What was it Barnier was fond of saying? Ah, yes, "the clock is ticking"

Tick-tock, Barnier.

Hmm. The "EU Commission" and "voters" - two concepts I don't tend to see in the same sentence.

The EU political government layer is utterly uninterested in the economics of it - they just want to dispense with the annoying "nation state" thing, and move to fullly federalised US-E. It is a political project, with political aims. I'm just grateful we rejected it.
