“I pay my taxes to Mrs Merkel …” Brexit, Business and Berkshire.

Brexit, Business and Employment in Berkshire – 2017

Judith Bunting speaking in February 2017 at a cross party rally organised by West Berkshire Stronger Together EU.

Back in 2017, I was invited to speak at a cross party rally organised by West Berkshire Stronger Together EU.

My focus was the results of the survey of local businesses that we had just completed, asking whether the prospect of Brexit was already affecting their business and how they thought Brexit would affect them in the long run.

This matters because it affects employment in our area and also the quality of life for everyone. To paraphrase the owner of an engineering company who has moved from Greenham to Germany: I pay my taxes to Mrs Merkel, now.
