Re: Britain outside the EU

This is first (as in EU-UK) I'm glad has gone to the EU rather than UK.

The EU's food watchdog on Wednesday paved the way for diners across Europe to tuck into insects as it gave safety approval for human consumption of dried yellow mealworm.

The move by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is the preliminary step needed before officials can decide whether to allow the beetle larvae to be sold to consumers across the 27-nation bloc.

Unfortunately, it was over budget for the free school meals pack.

Re: Britain outside the EU

I tend to be a bit sceptical of his Brexit judgments.

Funny that because I have been more sceptical to the crap you and Mr K have spouted for the last 4 years, which has been very much proven to be baseless.

Northern Ireland loses new Stena ferry as Brexit deal disrupts trade

Vessel switched to Ireland-France route after demand rises from traders wanting to avoid bureaucracy

Ferry operator Stena has removed a new vessel from a service between Northern Ireland and Britain in the latest sign that post-Brexit trade rules are driving traffic away from the UK.

The company has instead deployed the Stena Embla in the Republic of Ireland to meet surging demand for direct shipments to and from mainland Europe as traders change supply chains to avoid additional paperwork in Britain. Many companies that traditionally shipped goods between Ireland and Europe via Britain, a route known as the UK land bridge, have diverted this year to direct European shipments because of concern about procedures since the end of the Brexit transition period.

But Stena’s move was unplanned, coming only days after it introduced the Embla on its service between Belfast and Birkenhead in England, where it was supposed to replace one of its two smaller vessels on the route.

The Embla arrived in Belfast from China on January 2 but was reassigned to the south-eastern Irish port of Rosslare 11 days later in what the company described as a “Brexit-busting” move. It will replace a smaller vessel — one of two on a booming route between Rosslare and Cherbourg, France.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Some settling down and re-orientations will obviously take place across the board.

... which helpfully clarified that the vessel Stena Horizon, which is already assigned to Rosslare-Cherbourg, is in need of maintenance; and that the assignment of the new Birkenhead-Belfast vessel Stena Embla to the Rosslare-Cherbourg route is seen as temporary.

Though I’d still be curious to know what people think is the downside of getting HGV through traffic off our roads?

Anything that gets traffic off the roads is a good thing - you have to wonder, if it such a good thing, why they didn’t do it before?

I wonder what the benefit to the product shippers was, instead of shipping it direct to Ireland?

I’m not sure what HMG could do about it. HMG couldn’t unilaterally close the border to HGVs while we were in the EU. They couldn’t introduce additional tolls for only foreign HGVs; they would have had to introduce them for domestic traffic as well, with all the additional cost to businesses that would entail. As long as the “UK land bridge” was quicker and cheaper for hauliers transiting to and from Ireland they would continue to use it. It is our exit from the EU that has allowed this to happen, though it is the side-effect of additional form-filling rather than a deliberate government traffic management strategy that has brought it about.

Of course once the new bureaucracy beds in, traffic may return to Dublin-Holyhead. The route via the UK is still significantly quicker for most destinations at either end. But I hope in the meantime the government takes note of the altered traffic patterns and pollution levels and draws useful lessons from them.

Unfortunately, the UK-EU agreement allows full transit rights between the UK and EU so an arbitrary blocking of EU traffic in to the UK might be a no no
