Re: Britain outside the EU

Lidl and Aldi today has fresh fruit and veg from many parts of the EU, so there must be a lot of smugglers at work.

Or perhaps the UK is a lot more sensible about things.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Not a situation we can transfer blame to the SNP for.
Quote:
Northern Ireland food shortages set to worsen, say UK supermarket heads

Further supply disruption expected from new border regime after Brexit grace period ends

The UK’s largest supermarkets have warned the government of “significant disruption to food supplies” to Northern Ireland because of “unworkable” post-Brexit border arrangements.

Many supermarkets in the region have already been hit by rows of empty shelves because of the new border regime.

But in a letter to Cabinet Office secretary Michael Gove, chief executives of companies including Sainsbury, Marks and Spencer and Tesco UK warned that shortages would worsen when a Brexit grace period, which has exempted retailers from some arduous red tape, ends on March 31.

The supermarkets urged the government to take “a number of steps to work with us to ensure the long-term sustainability of the Northern Irish grocery market”.

The retailers also called on the government to begin an “open discussion” with the EU to explain why implementing the Irish protocol was “unworkable” in the current timeframe, raising the prospect of difficult negotiations with Brussels just weeks after the deal was agreed.

Re: Britain outside the EU

An emergency airlift by the Guvmin seems in order here.

Brussels will be intent on punishing us.

I suspect that they will end up changing their sourcing to the Republic but longer term may make ownership less viable. We'll see.

And where exactly will Ireland source things from? They are heavily dependent on goods coming from or through the UK.
Ireland is currently dodging the issues.

Quote:
Ireland is set to be awarded more than €1 billion as part of a European Union fund to offset the impact of Brexit.

...
However, while the sizable majority of goods are fully checked and sent through the so-called “green route”, a source said there is now a “trend of people not engaging with their paperwork or obligations”.
Ministers were told of the need for companies to engage with the problem, with a fear that individual companies have “switched off” to the impacts of Brexit. The issue was among the reasons why customs arrangements for businesses importing goods from Britain were temporarily eased last week.
Sources cautioned, however, that while this measure was suitable as a once-off step, it could not be repeated going forward.

I'm sure the EU will support Ireland.

What else can the EU do from a practical point of view?


A lot of it seems to be a matter of getting used to the new EU imposed regime.

It's the EU's systems, not the UK's.

It was the EU that delayed things. Not sure there was anything much in the final agreement, that the UK wasn't willing to accept a long time ago.
Anyway, it should mostly be a temporary set of hiccups, that people get accustomed to.

Re: Britain outside the EU

British drivers to escape speeding fines in EU as Brexit loophole exposed
BREXIT may mean British drivers avoid speeding fine







The UK’s departure from the European Union on 31 December has ended existing deals regarding motoring offences which could see thousands of drivers escape punishment. The EU’s cross-border enforcement directive no longer applies to road users which means information cannot be shared between borders.

And EU drivers in the UK will escape fines too.

Re: Britain outside the EU

And vice-versa...
Quote:
The new loophole also means the DVLA will not be able to get the details of European drivers caught breaking the law in the UK.
Of course, if the UK driver who sped ever goes back driving through France, they'll get them (and again, vice-versa).

Speeding in the UK it's damn near impossible to reach the speed limit, especially in Lincolnshire there's a tractor every half mile
