Which is exactly what I said YF

The vaccine programme is a governemt policy success.

Its not however a success of the governemt Brexit policy.

Just brilliant ... the triumph (and predictable consequence) of focusing on propaganda over policy...

Paying for propaganda?!

 

Moto GP, British Cycling, Au Pairs, hobbyists, chocolate makers, fishermen, fashion brands, farmers etc etc etc. The list is becoming ever longer of people being hurt.

There are no "scallop wars". The Uk negotiated at great length an agreement for trade and cooperation with the EU. The UK wanted to be free of EU regulation, and this agreement ensures that. It was ratified in Parliament. The agreement left the UK free to diverge from EU standards and implemented border controls, taking back control.

All the EU is doing is implementing the agreement.

The UK cannot do the same because the country is a shambles.

They knew it was going to happen.

Many things but the main one is that a democratic vote to leave has been implemented despite opposition from every quarter with vested interests.  Other countries that also want to leave may not get the opportunity to leave as the EU is hell-bent on destroying their sovereignty, so another plus is that we did it just in time.

His aim is to rip off gullible fools like you to fill his own pockets. Take a look at his vomit inducing adverts that pretend he isn't working in financial services for his own profiteering motives. Once a spiv, always a spiv, and a very ugly one at that.

As Roger Daltry famously points out, bands used to tour the continent before we joined the common market. We are back to that same situation. Only covid stopping you taking your guitar to Hamburg tomorrow, Herman.

It's the Roger Daltrey who was prevented from touring in Holland with his band, The Who, in 1966 due to a lack of Work Permits

Though this isn't really about The Who, they are big enough to look after themselves. Its the smaller artists who will suffer more 

It seems that even the top UK bands, the real top, top bands who are No. 1 in the UK are going to find things more difficult

I put my name on waiting list of sorts for that album. That explains why I haven't heard back from the record shop.

Perhaps all the brexit supporters on this site would like to make a substantial monthly donation to all the companies faced with these crippling costs. Or maybe they could volunteer a couple of days free labour a week to help fill out the forms.

Don't any of you realize that the EU are being  deliberately awkward ? I think there's no way you need that much paperwork (save the planet) They don't want Brexit to be a success and they are trying every trick to hinder it. We should start doing it to their imports.

Don't you realise that this is the deal the government negotiated, the deal they wanted, the deal you voted for and the deal that passed through Parliament. Once the priority was taking back control of the UK's borders rather than free trade this is the inevitable outcome. The UK rejected the required steps to mitigate this problem, so the EU is applying the standard WTO/3rd country arrangements that the extreme Brexwits wanted.

You won, you got what you voted for, now own it.

Swindo is a little simple bless him, I thought these Brexiteers said that the EU need our goods and we wouldn’t suffer, now they complain that the EU is being deliberately awkward!

Nope it’s what Brexit was always about divorce from a massive market which was worth 43% of our export without any checks or paperwork issues, now we’re treated in the same brackets as those outside this lovely big market and we have adhere to the regulations as all the others! Nothing to do with being awkward, but up to our government to negotiate a better trade deal on movement of goods, which in turn will probably come with more caveats......

Funny how those brexiteers are only now seeing the full effect only after two months which those of us involved in trading with EU saw coming years ago! 
We are not members of the EU and we need to accept that they have standards which as a third country we knew would hit us, it’s sad that our narrow minded government with their Brexit advisers we’re so focused on getting out rather than sorting out a decent agreement!
