Do #British consumers care where their cars are made? @unitetheunion thinks so. But when so much production could move abroad without #Brexit deal and electric cars subsidised by gov't, consumers could wave goodbye to more than just Astras @dgbailey
@andyverity No demand for cars in UK, so car makers send them abroad. And while rebalancing away from domestic consumption based on borrowing is a good thing, would better if not result of fear + uncertainty at home (leading to low pound) but rather technical efficiency of exporters #Brexit

We'll have to take the word of the @TheFCA and @gk_ben in today's @FinancialTimes that sub-prime lending is absent from credit boom. Why? because the industry doesn't collect figures. No public data. @GavinHJackson
