Re: Britain outside the EU

So, no actual story then.

Spain’s “final say” occurs because the Frontex officers deployed to help Gibraltar integrate into Schengen will be Spanish ones. It’s their job to teach Gib’s own officials how to interpret Schengen rules. It is not their job to point at individuals arriving at Gibraltar Port or the airstrip and tell Gibraltar immigration officials to deny them entry.

Gibraltar or the UK won't have access to the Schengen database so Spanish police officers will work behind the scenes hence Spain's final say claim.

Only the customs officers of Frontex will be public-facing. This is not a one-off training exercise to pass on knowledge to Gibraltans, it is a four-year contract which will either continue under Frontex or directly with Spanish officers.

The key benefit for using Frontex for now and not Spanish officers directly is that travellers arriving in Gibraltar are approached by agents in EU uniforms, not Spanish uniforms. After four years, Frontex members are anticipated to be replaced by Spanish officers. However, the agreement incorporates a consultation process which could extend Frontex's presence.

Re: Britain outside the EU

It's a good job we didn't adopt the Euro. We'd have had to change all our money again as I don't suppose the EU would allow anyone to use their currency without being in the EU itself.

While there's plenty of good reasons to not join the Euro, and plenty of really good reasons to not to outside the EU either, the idea that we'd have to have changed currency isn't correct.

The states of Kosovo and Montenegro in the Balkans are not members of the EU. The two countries adopted the euro unilaterally in 2002 and have since used it as their de facto currency. This means that the euro is not legal tender there, but is treated as such by the population. Before 2002, Kosovars and Montenegrins used German marks.
All the others on the list are autonimous dependencies {or similar} of EU states.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Interesting that, had we adopted it, we could have carried on using the Euro currency after we left the EU.

I imagine that the present Government would have wanted to stop using it though as a means to send a signal to the electorate eg blue passports.

I would think we would have gone back to the pound in the same way we switched to decimal. You can't replace all the country's currency overnight.

They inherited it because they were using the German Mark, which obviously got replaced by the Euro.
We were in Montenegro for a day trip last year, you could spend Croation Kuna there as well.

Great country with a lovely combination of beaches and mountains and cheaper than Croatia.

Now DPD halts ALL EU deliveries as British firms blast 'perfect storm' of Brexit bureaucracy, IT woes and confusion as fishermen complain of a 'brick wall' in ports
- They lashed out at new 'obstacles' slowing exports via Calais and Boulogne
- Some consignments delayed 48 hours, running the risk of being rejected
- Came as retailers warned that a new wave of red tape and tariffs is hitting trade


A major parcel courier halted deliveries to the EU today as firms complained of a 'perfect storm' of post-Brexit changes hitting business.

DPD UK said today it was pausing its road delivery services into Europe, including Ireland, until at least Wednesday, citing issues resulting from the EU-UK trade deal agreed last month, which came into effect on December 31.

It came as retailers warned that a new wave of red tape and tariffs was hitting trade.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) said that 'at least 50' of its members face potential tariffs for re-exporting goods following the agreement of the Trade and Co-operation Agreement (TCA).

Marks and Spencer boss Steve Rowe also warned that, despite the UK signing a free trade agreement with the EU, new rules and regulations are set to 'significantly impact' its overseas ventures in Ireland, the Czech Republic and France, although he insisted the company is 'actively working to mitigate' the issues.

Meanwhile UK fishermen lasted out, saying British-landed fish are being left to rot because of a post-Brexit 'brick wall of bureaucracy in French ports.

A Dutch TV network has filmed border officials confiscating ham sandwiches and other foods from drivers arriving in the Netherlands from the UK, under post-Brexit rules.

The officials were shown explaining import regulations imposed since the UK formalised its separation from the EU.

Under EU rules, travellers from outside the bloc are banned from bringing in meat and dairy products.

The rules appeared to bemuse one driver.

"Since Brexit, you are no longer allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, fruit, vegetables, fish, that kind of stuff," a Dutch border official told the driver
It begins.
