The editor of a regional daily which openly backed Remain ahead of the European Union referendum has stated his newspaper’s opposition to ‘hard Brexit’.
The Birmingham Mail was one of a number of regional newspapers to support a Remain vote ahead of the 2016 vote.
It comes after the Mail, and its sister website Birmingham Live, covered the outcome of an inquiry by the cross-party House of Commons business committee which found it could put thousands of car manufacturing jobs at risk in the West Midland
Plants highlighted as being under threat of cuts include Jaguar Land Rover, in Birmingham and Solihull, and BMW, in Warwickshire.
Posting a link to the online version of the story, Marc wrote on social networking site: “It’s why our editorial line before the referendum was anti-Brexit, and why we’re opposed to a hard Brexit.
“There are simply too many jobs in Birmingham at stake.”
