For once I agree with the tories.

Remainers are doing themselves no favors blaming this on brexit. Even a halfwit could see that brexit was at most a variable.
Spot on.

I'll wait.
Different business models.




Are you sure that you have "business interests" both here and the U.K.?



Not just a bit confused like your whole "U.K.-U.S." trade deal nonsense again?

Ah, at last.

So the reason Thomas Cook went bust is because of its different business model, not sterling and Brexit.

Thanks for your honesty.

Even the extract from the article the YOU posted from the Belfast Telegraph said so.

Thanks for your honesty.

Read my posts:Thomas Cooks statement of reasons includes both Brexit with the 20% decline on sterling and Brexit uncertainty for consumers affecting trade.


When you live on the edge of insolvency these things push you over.


Being a businessman in 2 jurisdictions you should know that Cona_n.

But it depends on your business model as you've already admitted.

Brexit and sterling is the same for all tour operators, I'm glad you grasp that now.

Is Cona_n slowly admitting that Brexit might be a bit rubbish?

Jesus Christ.

Being wrong about something really really hurts some people’s fragile ego.

Take a holiday stacky. You clearly need it.


Just don’t use a badly run travel agent.

I have just come back from a holiday where the decline in the pound made it a hell of a lot more expensive. I didn't book it till April due to the uncertainty around Brexit. Within my social circle, I'm hearing people saying exactly the same thing.
It makes sense, simple price elasticity. Pound goes down, price of holidays goes up, fewer people take them, companies that supply them go bust.

HBB, you’re better than this.

The world and his dog knows Thomas cook was in trouble for years. Brexit May have been the straw, but that’s all it was.

There’ll be plenty of chaos post brexit without trying to attribute this and things like this to it.

Its a form of business that has largely had it's day.


Saying it is a casualty of Brexit is bollocks.

Plenty of other businesses have but this one had one foot in the grave already.
