Editor's Comment 

Unfortunately being non political or not conversing about the EU referendum has been virtually impossible over the last year. I have listened to the debates avidly and spoken to countless manufacturers from the very largest in the world to numerous SMEs from a cross section of industry, as well as being in the privileged position of hearing leaders of British industry who have expressed their honest opinions based of real experiences at top level EU discussions and global forums.
