Today, Yellow Travel, the best place in the West Midlands to book a Birmingham Airport taxi, has welcomed statements from our local big employers, Birmingham Airport and Jaguar Land Rover in the wake of the referendum in the summer.
“The outcome isn’t just about Britain leaving the E.U. but is now also about reforming our new Government,” according to an official statement from Birmingham Airport. “The E.U. referendum result doesn’t mean that we will immediately see a change to our lifestyles, the way that we travel or how our European nationals living and working in Britain will be affected. Nor will it mean that we will disconnect with our European partners overnight. It is far too early to speculate about any of these important issues – this is an unprecedented situation after all. But it’s important to keep clear and calm heads so that we can ensure that our regional priorities, such as HS2, keep moving forward to ensure the future of Midlands’ residents, workers and industry, is not compromised.”
With a base in Solihull, Jaguar Land Rover has responded by simply stating, “Today is just business as usual.” In a letter to staff, the company said it, “Remains committed,” to its manufacturing plants and consumer sites across the E.U. This was welcome news to our many loyal Birmingham Airport transfer customers.
Birmingham voted to leave the European Union by the closest of margins. There were just 3,800 votes in to at the end revealing that 50.4% of people in the country’s second largest city supported Brexit. The final overview saw that The Black Country and Birmingham voted to leave with a majority of 291,000 votes or 59.8% of the vote.
