Airbus warns over Brexit free movement

"We are entering a dangerous phase" if Airbus cannot seamlessly move people and products around the European Union, a senior executive has warned.

Chief operating officer Tom Williams told MPs that Washington would be "delighted" if that happened.

Giving evidence to the Commons Treasury Select Committee, he added that the US would make decisions based on the benefits to US rival Boeing.

Airbus employs 6,000 people at its wings plant in Broughton, Flintshire.

1. We seem to be able to move people pretty easy

in North America. 3 sovereign nations with border and everything. Been to Canada a bunch of times, Mexico a few.

It has become more of a pain in the ass since you need a passport now.

3. Same here in regards to Mexico and Canada. I think other people should be able to do the same.

What disturbs me about our treaties are the environmental regulatory exceptions that are sometimes made to reach agreements. I support raising environmental standards for trading partners rather than lowering already inadequate standards to second or third world levels..
