  • British Steel collapses

    Because of Brexit.

    British Steel was reportedly seeking a government loan of £75 million ($95 million) to cover losses it said it suffered because European orders had evaporated due to the uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

      British steel collapses?? Yikes! I need to know what kind of steel my office building is made of, STAT!!
      For those who prefer to listen rather than read and who ask these questions: What underlying crimes were being investigated when Trump obstructed justice? Why wasn't he indicted? Why did Mueller discuss indicting a sitting president in Volume II but not Volume I?

        That indeed is a concern. Maybe Donald can come by with his hyyyuuuuge hands and see if he can bend your building. That would be the ultimate test.

          Our emotional, reflexive, dogmatic leaders know what they are doing.
          Really, they do.
          George Washington was the man who never told a lie. Richard Nixon was the man who never told the truth. Donald Trump is the man who doesn't know the difference.
          Venezuela is what happens when you have Trump without the Madison.

            From the article.

            "European steel makers have been under pressure because of cheap competition from China. The European Commission put anti-dumping measures on Chinese steel in 2017, and extended them in 2018 after an investigation showed the practice of flooding the market with steel priced below production cost was continuing"

            Could someone explain to me how this is Trumps fault?

              No one said it was.

                Someone needs to work on their reading comprehension.

                    Why is there still uncertainty? Haven't they exited yet. When did they vote on this?

                    Things must move slowly over there...
                    EVERYTHING I type (i.e. not a link or video) is only my opinion. In a sane world, that should not have to be said. But then, we are not living in a sane world, are we?

                      #2 is mine.
                      In no way did I indicate this was Trump's fault.
                      And I refer you to post #7 and #8.

                            I explain this whole thing in posts 37 and 44, and pretty much bring it home in post 57.
