Airbus threatens to pull out of United Kingdom if no Brexit deal reached

Saturday's demo, which will begin in Pall Mall and culminate outside the Houses of Parliament, is part of a "summer of action" by campaign groups created to increase pressure on Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid says government's "default" position would be to say yes to applications post Brexit.

Organisers say people "from all walks of life" will be present, including farmers, doctors, teachers, delivery drivers, students, fishermen and veterans, demonstrating the "growing popular demand" for another vote.

The majority of European Union citizens seeking settled status in the United Kingdom after Brexit will only to have to provide a national insurance number to prove their residence in the country, the British government said Thursday.

"It is essential as we enter the next phase of the negotiations that the European Union understands that and believes it".

The company, which employs 14,000 people at 25 sites across the country, said it would "reconsider its investments in the United Kingdom, and its long-term footprint in the country" if Britain crashed out of the single market and customs union without a transition agreement. Promoters say it will "focus on freedom from the European Union, freedom from terror, freedom of speech, freedom from sharia law and unity of all people irrespective of race or creed".

The People's Vote protest, due to start at 12pm and go from Pall Mall to Parliament Square, has been organised by increasingly well-funded anti-Brexit groups based at Millbank Tower and led by Open Britain, the successor to the remain campaign.

Reflecting on events since the referendum, he said warnings during the 2016 campaign of "economic Armageddon" if people voted to leave had been unfounded and the United Kingdom had been given a "very big vote of confidence" since then by foreign investors.

But Labour said Mr Fox's comments about a no-deal Brexit were the "height of irresponsibility".

Tom Williams, the chief operating officer of Airbus Commercial Aircraft, said Brexit would have "severe negative consequences for the United Kingdom aerospace industry and Airbus in particular" in any scenario.

"They don't want a half-hearted Brexit".

"We don't want them to be affected by friction at the borders".

"We are confident that we are going to get a good deal, one that ensures that trade is as free and frictionless as possible, including for the aerospace sector", a spokeswoman said yesterday.

He added that Britain is at an advantage in world trade because English is "the best language in the world for doing commerce, science and medicine and so on".
