Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
the view amongst the realists is that the Japanese thought they had a deal with Thatcher that the Japanese would site their industry here and, in return, HM Govt would deliver access to the EU.

The Japanese Govt delivered a short memorandum 2 years ago about its fears for brexit and the likely consequences. The Tories chose to ignore that and, since then, Japanese companies have gradually, one by one, withdrawn from the UK.
