  • Well that's all right then

    Lego have announced plans to ensure that supplies to Britain will be maintained through a no deal Brexit. Crisis averted. I'm surprised that Gove hasn't announced this triumph in the Commons

        You don't know much about supply chains, do you?

          What role do UK concerns play in Lego's supply chain? Do British manufacturers supply plastic or packaging material? Are Lego's plastics vendors especially reliant on British petroleum?

          I strongly suspect that what Lego is saying is that they'll perfectly willing to pass on the cost of increased tariffs and protectionist policies to their British customers. As is the norm with these silly protectionist ploys is that the party that ends up paying is your own consumers.

              No worries, the Lincoln Logs Co. of Burnham, Maine will be there to pick up the Lego "big kid fun" slack; environmentally friendly, I hear their Millennium Falcon kit is to die for!

                        And people think that the Brexiteer/remainer divide is intractable to deal with!
