Theresa May threatens to blacklist Boeing after America puts over 4,000 UK jobs at risk with threat of tariff on UK-made Bombardier passenger jet

Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon

“This is not the behaviour we expect of Boeing and could indeed jeopardise our future relationship with Boeing.”

Boeing stand to gain a lot of British defence spending.

We have contracts in place with Boeing for new maritime patrol aircraft and for Apache attack helicopters and they will also be bidding for other defence work and this kind of behaviour clearly could jeopardise our future relationship with Boeing.”
