Tory MP claims hard Brexit would put Jaguar Land Rover in ‘wonderful position’

  Tory MP claims hard Brexit would put Jaguar Land Rover in ‘wonderful position’ Pro-Brexit conservative MP Owen Paterson has dismissed Jaguar Land Rover’s concerns a hard Brexit would make it unprofitable to stay in the UK because of a sharp rise in tariff costs, claiming instead that JLR would be in a “wonderful position” if the UK left the single market, customs union and jurisdiction of the European courts. Mr Patterson told the BBC Today Programme that businesses warning against a ‘no-deal’ scenario were assuming that automatically meant tariffs would be imposed on goods. “If we go to WTO terms, we set our tariffs and we can choose to have no tariffs,” Mr Paterson said.

Other Twitter users told Mr Selmayr to contact Gareth Southgate, as they highlighted pictures of the England manager consoling Colombia players in the wake of his team's victory over the South American nation earlier in the tournament.

A SMUG boss at the EU has been slammed tonight after posting a gloating tweet celebrating Europe after England lost in the the World Cup final. Martin Selmayr posted a series of football and European Union flags shortly after the devastating extra time defeat to Croatia.

But some people leapt to the defence of Mr Selmayr, who is known as "the Monster" in Brussels.

The senior civil servant had posted a similar tweet on Saturday night, when Croatia's quarter-final win over hosts Russia meant the World Cup's final four were all EU nations.

A former chief of staff to European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, Mr Selmayr is a key power broker who has been branded Britain's "Brexit nemesis".

Last October, Mr Selmayr denied accusations he leaked details of a meeting between Mr Juncker and Theresa May to the German media, following the publication of a damning depiction of the prime minister.

Mr Selmayr also denied he was pushing for a punitive Brexit deal for the UK.

The German official's sudden promotion to the head of the EU's civil service earlier this year was subject to an investigation amid angry accusations of a "stitch-up" by Mr Juncker and his key ally.

The row became known in Brussels as "Selmayrgate".
