Boris Johnson must listen to business, says BMW boss
EPA The chairman of BMW has warned Boris Johnson no-one would win from a no-deal Brexit and urged the new Prime Minister to listen to business. BMW warned earlier this year that if the UK leaves the EU without a deal it would threaten production of the Mini which is produced at its Cowley plant, near Oxford, where it employs 4,500 people. BMW is one of a number of car companies that have expressed concern about leaving the EU without a trade deal. BMW closed its Cowley plant for a month in April after planning for the original Brexit deadline of 29 March. In his previous role as foreign secretary, Mr Johnson last year allegedly used an expletive when discussing business concerns about a hard Brexit at an event for EU diplomats.
