    The company has announced it is taking its manufacturing elsewhere causing the loss of 3,500 jobs.
    The company has said that Brexit is not to blame - and conversely, employment figures nationwide are at a record high, so what's causing the move? Our economics editor Ben Chu went to find out what the move will mean for the British car industry.
    In the studio, Kirsty Wark is joined by Faiza Shaheen, director of the think tank CLASS and economist George Magnus.

Momentarily i drive a Jaguar and a New Mini in the EU. The last British cars i will ever own! I rather support the EU. Mercedes , Porsche etc. are al superb cars we don't need The UK! A holiday in the UK a few years ago was very pleasant. It will be the last visit of the UK, France and Italy are also very nice country's. By the way... Didn't anyone in the UK notice that the pound has already dropped 10% ?? I think you are all paralysed and are not aware what's going on. Do you all really mean that Boris Johnson is a good and wise politician?

How about we say all cars to be sold in Britain, must be built in Britain. The bbc is so anti British they forget the simple things we can do.When President Trump complained that the EU is trading unfairly with the US. He challenged them to fix it or he will copy thier levels of tariff. That soon got sorted.

What I find amazing is that none of the people commenting here saying the same nonsense about trade. Because UK imports more than they export EU, so EU needs UK more than the other way around. Listen and understand what I’m writing now!!! UK HAVE ONLY 1 THING THEY CAN CONTROL IN REGARDS TO ITS TRADE AFTER BREXIT! THEIR IMPORTS!!! So you will still import Goods but exports you have zero control over!

Well we`re leaving because we voted to leave . Plus I don`t for 1 minute believe the car manufacturers will pull out their deals because of Brexit but even if they did so there's a price worth paying to get back control and holding our own elected government responsible for their actions instead of unelected bureaucrats who take their direction from the gift bearing corporate lobbyists.

Mashing your gums about Brexit! Nothing to do with the diesel down turn or Trump threatening trade tariffs then. Also Honda have been behind the curve in electric hybrids being sold in Europe. Giving the HRV to a dust bowl in Mexico to build for Europe and the quality being crap hasn't helped either. Honda Swindon top in quality!

Why don't we make our own cars? We invented them. Also TV, medicines, electric motors, combustion engines, steel, computers, phones etc etc etc. Are we that pathetic that we can't do anything for ourselves anymore? Pathetic!

Nothing to do with Brexit and all to do with the fact that you killed your own industries back in the 1980s. The UK doesn't own most of the businesses that exist in the uk. TATA, BMW and others may shut down their factories with millions more jobless. Great Britain was killed by its two most admired PMs: Churchill (By going to wars) and Thatcher by killing manufacturing industry. You deserve it because you still don't get it.

In this morden global world if you make a silly decision economically or politically like Brexit, it will come back and fuck you in ass for centuries to come.

Britain was ruined long ago. French, German and even Italian Car firms were successful simply because labour relations in these countries were ten times better. Continental countries enjoy better standards of living and quality of life because their politics are not polarised by class division. Uk managers were mere sychophants and incapable of leadership sand the same goes for the politicians. The UK is riven and broken. What country would invite armies of cheap labour from EEC and beyond to do their bidding while an untrained and obese army of benefit scrounging sloths live high, exporting their depravity to european holiday destinations? I wanted us to copy best practice from other EEC countries, but we ignored anything that worked like their railways and health service. We are heading for a mamoth collapse. Thanks Brexit!

Why does the UK still focus so much on manufacturing? We're a tiny island and sooner or later we come up against the fact that we aren't big enough to compete with other countries. We need to focus more on tech and innovation.

Not even during the good old times the brits were able to build quality cars. Even the Jags, RR's and B's were know to rust slowly away. How ever a kingdom in its last phase. May be out of May's betray and disaster something new and better will come up like the Phoenix out of the ash!

It's not really British car manufacturing - it's German, Japanese and French car manufacturing. The British destroyed their own car industry. The British have failed as a people to create wealth - they don't value wealth creation they value welfare and consumerism. Most British people are to dense to realise that their country's economic model is based on attracting foreign capital, foreign businesses and importing foreign workers to generate productivity and wealth which is taxed to fund their beloved welfare state. Without foreign investment, businesses and people Britain would be classed as developing country.

So when you say British car manufacturing what do you actually mean? Not Diesel obviously those plants are de facto dead. Not really petrol now EU has deal with Japan no duties need to be overcome. So what. The only area where Britain has an edge is electric / fuel cell road, rail and skycar type autonomous transport systems. The car is just a small part of something much bigger that is happening in the next decade or so, but if we don't make the system we don't get to make the car. But sure you blame Brexit if you like. PS all cars being electric by 2030 might give you a hint.

How can it be British car manufacturing if the companies in Britain aren't British idiots, let them leave new companies will be created that's the life of business. Nissan is a Japanese company which guess what is not British, BMW not British so shut the fuck up about British car manufacturing all these companies do is supply jobs for a period of time with no guarantees, soon as they don't like something they fucking leave Britain.

Jaguar Land Rover moved to Slovakia- paid for by UK taxpayers, with EU state aid rules binned to do it. JLR said that if they didn’t go to Slovakia, they would have moved to Mexico. So how would just in time work with final assembly 5000 miles from the EU?

If these clowns fall out with a no deal Brexit hopefully tariff barriers will eventually finish what's left of English car assembly.Airbus should be keeping a close eye on it's British operation also. Tariffs walls can also apply to service industries. The World doesn't owe delusional, ill-educated,xenophobic boors a free lunch.
