Another case of Brexiteers celebrating something staying the same. The contract was signed in 2018, 2 test buses delivered in 2020, now they're happy to fufill the rest of the contract which was for 200 busses.

Is this how it is going to be? Every single time a British company gets a contract it will be because of Brexit rather than them being good at what they do.
Meanwhile the Office for Budget Responsibility reports that Brexit will cause long term damage to the UK economy. It really is shouting about finding a 10p coin after throwing away a £20 note.

Well every time a British firm loses a contract it will be portrayed its because were no longer in Europe.

Welcome to the fun club. 👍🇬🇧

They got the contract before Brexit, I think the argument that's trying to be made is "look we still trade with Europe". and they'll cherry pick stories. Meanwhile exports to Europe were down 30% in Q1 according to government trade statistics. Haven't heard that they've recovered but will be interesting to see the government statistics for Q2 in a couple months to see if they have.

Yep every good news story will trump you utter doom-mongers with your ham sandwiches, Dutch bike parts or Women's Jump suits.

But more importantly the contact was signed after we took the vote to leave the E U in 2016.

Nice try. 😉

Well we’re. Constantly treated to a plethora of negativity at every turn from the rabid Left on here about Brexit so why not
I'm not keen on Brexit but I'm not rabid anything, quite a lot of moderate Torys didnt want it either, it's not always a case of extremes.

So? My argument was that this is once again a celebration of things staying the same, not that Brexit should have deterred this trade, or that this deal happened because of Brexit (it didn’t). The only way you’d know if Brexit deterred or promoted trade on a large scale is looking at the statistics and not cherry picking deals that have or haven’t happened. Which brings me on to my next point...

Well you can bench mark them against last years when there was a lockdown (it’s still lower) also you can compare them to inbound trade which is yet to be effected as the UK hasn’t imposed most of it’s regulations yet - this has returned to normal. Yet exports haven’t. They may do in Q2, it remains to be seen.

But the bus company could have easily cancelled the order and gone to a bus maker within the EU though but they didn’t.

You can bet had that happened the remoaners would have been out in force telling us all we’ve lost a multi million pound order because of Brexit.

Faith in the British manufacturing industry comes to mind here. 🇬🇧

Sorry to piss on your bonfire. Alexander Dennis is actually a Canadian owned company.

However, any contribution to reducing the Brexit deficit, which equates to circa 40 years payment into the EU, by the UK, will be gratefully accepted.

The Canadians bought the company out in 2019 no relevance to the argument at all,AD who have been building buses in the UK for over 100 years. 👍

More good news. Boris Johnson is preparing to announce his plans to use Remainer tears to generate Britain’s electricity. The tears will be applied by power stations to generate millions of kilowatts to power homes up and down Great Britain.

A government spokesman said that he had been worried about the recent reduction in tear volume as more and more people are realising what a load of devious t***s the EU leaders are and what they really think of the UK. The moaners are moving away from the dark side in droves. However, those that remain are such whining, whinging cry babies that their flood of tears should be more than sufficient for the job in hand.

The spokesman offered his thanks to the remoaner soft arses and urged citizens to show their appreciation. Why not go round to your remoaner neighbour's house and make a simple gesture such as taking your chainsaw and carving their wardrobe in the likeness of Emmanuel Macron or their kitchen table in the shape of the European mainland. Or why not paint their lawn blue and sprinkle some gold stars on it. Their gratitude will make your gesture worthwhile.

The Germans actually buying British vehicles God no surely it’s incorrect? 🤔

I hope BHOK doesn’t read this as he won’t be sleeping tonight that’s for sure.😂
That's absolutely brilliant. It's taken you 4 months to try to find a positive Brexit story and all you can come up with is an example of something that happened all the time during our EU membership?!!! 😁

So it's all been worthwhile now, seeing the fishing industry devastated, the petrol bombs and break up of the UK and massive economic damage - it all pales into insignificance now we have a bus contract with Berlin. Whoopee!!! 👏👏👏👏😂😂😂😂

I refer you to the fact based headline of 198 buses being ordered by a German company.
If you don’t think it’s good news just come out and say so no need to go round the houses.
I never claimed it wasn't good news.

I'm sure it will help the church steeple fund reach its target of £100 billion +

But you couldn't help yourself having a dig even mentioning the new owners you just want us to fail. 👎

Oh and German exports are down to the UK 30% it's called a global pandemic. 👍

Rest assured Giro and one or two others on here would have been the first to comment on a thread had they lost that order claiming it was over Brexit that’s for sure.

So the opening post wasn’t meant as a dig?🤔

Why would I want it to fail? I’d be quite happy to be proved wrong. I’m entitled to my opinion and, as yet, I’m not convinced the eye watering costs are worth it.

Britain doesn’t build vehicles does it, companies do, just like the EU doesn’t manufacture vaccines, companies do!

I am rabid, hardly matters whether I'm right, left or upside down. This country is fxcking finished. Our future signed away to a bunch of incompetent, lying clowns. What a sad indictment on this nation.
I was just thinking about my young grandkids future earlier. Scary

The design of this message board creates ping pong between users. I got bored of serving Brexit shots at you and never getting a decent return. Your latest effort is another sliced backhand that didn't make over the net. 😂

Let me know though if we finally ever get a single trade deal that is better than what we had before. 😁
