If there is a city in Europe which signifies muscular success and power, then Munich is surely it.
The economy of the region Bavaria is bigger than all but five countries in the whole European Union.
German exports to Britain were worth tens of billions of dollars last year.
A messy brexit with no plan could cost the Germans a lot.
So people are worried. They also think that Britain should be.
It’s a danger, so the relationship to be bidden,to say polite.
And I say also it’s a big big burden of bureaucracy submits documentation.
We make research between our members and this is estimate of the cost of this bureaucracy will be fifty two hundred million every year plus.
And if they move production to a different European country, they wouldn’t have this problem. Maybe.
When Theresa May pitches her deal to the European Union on Thursday, the central aim is to persuade them that goods like cars could still move through open borders.
Every other freedom like the movements of people would end and that’s the sticking point.
In Britain, there’s a growing assumption that the European Union’s about to cave in on all its demands for freedom of movement of everything in order to strike a bargain over brexit.
〝We buy all the German cars!〞say the brexiters of course.
The Germans want to make this work. Well, maybe that’s true and maybe it isn’t.
The view from the German brexit Department is that in the end it would be preferable to let Britain fall off a cliff and force Germany to find new export markets and to break Europe’s cherished rules on freedom of movements.
They think the UK is quite important but no more than that.
There are much more important markets especially for German cars.
It’s first and foremost China where we sell I think one third of all of German cars.
It’s the United States and other countries as well and so the British market is one of the German export markets.
As it stands, Germany is largely content and Britain can’t stop arguing with itself.
There’s a general sense in Germany that Britain is having a meltdown, is asleep at the wheel driving the wrong way down the road.
Soon, it will have to become clear who is right.
