Re: Sold to Germany??

Plenty of non-EU owners of British companies - TATA Steel, for example. Not a few foreign owners seem to do better than native British management (e.g. the Japanese car makers). The real issue you have missed is the workers' rights: out of the EU there will be pressure to drop down to US or lower entitlements. If some of Boris's chums have their way it will be goodbye to statutory redundancy pay, sickness benefit, paternity leave etc - those benefits will all be "choices" for you to fund yourself with insurance. And we all know how insurance firms like paying out.
