Post-Brexit investment flows, £170 billion in 2016

Business investment was untouched by Brexit as £170 billion flowed into Britain last year, exposing the Remainer lie that our historic vote for national independence would cause a collapse in foreign business investment.

The figure is practically unchanged on last year. Members of the government hailed the figure as a “huge vote of confidence” in the country, which showed that Brexit hasn’t caused a dent in the British economy.

The news should come as no shock after months of good economic news, showing healthy expansion across the economy and constant news of new investment.

Huge car manufacturers like Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, and Honda have all announced plans to invest in the UK, along with drug firm GlaxoSmithKline and tech giants like Facebook and Google. Remainers told us that freeing ourselves from the EU would turn away foreign investors.

Once again, the facts reveal just how wrong they were.
