On August 27th, the minister for International Trade, Greg Hands MP, tweeted an important update about foreign investment in the UK:
It’s clearly a good thing if Brexit doesn’t result in the economic calamity that some have predicted, but by itself, Mr Hands’ tweet doesn’t advance the debate. To judge whether this is good news, we need to know how big a company this is, how likely they were to leave, and what investment and jobs they might bring to the apocalyptic wasteland that is the UK’s future. In short, we need to know who they are. If the Government wants to use decisions made by private companies for the purposes of propaganda, we need to be able to scrutinise who they’re talking about.
