One in ten German firms present in Britain plans to stop investing in the island nation even before it definitively leaves the European Union, an industry group survey published on Tuesday found.
German firms believe Brexit will seriously damage business with the United Kingdom, said Eric Schweitzer, president of the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry (DIHK), which surveyed 2,200 internationally active companies.
Some nine percent of firms who have invested in the UK plan to shift investments elsewhere, with Germany and the rest of the EU the top choices.

Great opportunity to purchase UK securities, but most likely fake news.
1 in 10? That would be the case if there was never a Brexit. Some firms are always changing their exposure to a given market. Others are probably increasing their UK investment.

So 9 in 10 won’t be. Lord grant me the patience to tolerate fake news for another day.
The emotion driven Globalists are desperate to complete their war against the very concept of the nation. The vultures were circling for the expected kill, when Brexit, Trump and some others rallied patriots against them.
To the horror of loathsome betrayers, the Western heritage may yet survive!
They’d be smarter to dump their German investments and double-down on British investments.
One in ten German firms to cut their investment, means 9 in 10 won’t cut.
Notice how the “bad” though a minority, gets top billing.

So the U.K. will get less business from Hitler descendants because they voted for Brexit. UK should stop buying German cars because they killed Jews.
Can’t expect anything like that out of Agence France-Presse.
England has been around several hundred years longer than Germany and I’m sure will do just fine. Isn’t it time for the Germans to start indiscriminately murdering their neighbors again?
