Siemens in the UK

There was news this week that the giant company Siemens has demonstrated its faith in a post Brexit UK by announcing greater investment in the Country. It is not the only one, other Companies and global Banks have recently announced further investment. But why?
Money; that's why! These huge corporations can see trading advantages, located in a Country that is both in and out of Europe. They have faith that common sense (and money) will ensure that the UK and EU will come to a satisfactory arranngement despite the hard line rhetoric of Commission leaders, fighting to protect their fiefdom. Huge European conglomerates, hamstrung as they are by EU laws and rules, can see the advantage of  using a UK base, with better opportunities to exploit a more global reach.
How can we know this is going on? Just listen to the louder, more urgent rhetoric from the Commission, their appointment of more hard-line executives to enforce member states toe the line.  The UK, handily placed with its Commonwealth ties, will become a hub for world-wide trade and it is this that is the underlying theme of Brexit and the one that ensures that it will happen..
If the EU persists as it is, then, as the UK plans are realised, a huge surface bridge between Kent and the European mainland will be inevitable to deal with the trade and the County will become one giant warehouse.
