I'll have to try and find out what he done.
Shouldn't affect him as Tenerife is not in the EU.

Yes, it is. The Canaries are an autonomous region of Spain and so are part of the EU.

What they're not part of is the EU common area for duty free allowances, so there were different rules when we were in the EU for going on holiday there.

Re: Britain outside the EU

It's a bit clearer now why in the midst of a pandemic, Boris was keen to fly to India. Just Google "EU and India plan global infrastructure deal" or go to https://www.ft.com/content/2e612c38-...7-78e11ab1c697

Not at all clear on the paywall! But perhaps clearer from the horse's mouth, an EU statement from 3 years ago: https://www.europarl.europa.eu/legis...ategy-on-india

... from which I select this quote:

Quote:
Build on common values: promoting common global agendas on human rights and democracy, gender equality and women's empowerment; enhancing practical cooperation with and outreach to stakeholders, including the civil society; work together in third countries to help consolidate democratic processes; coordinate on humanitarian and disaster relief operations, as well as on food security.

If you Google the headline, you should be able to access the article.

India has been BoJo's great hope for a trade deal. If anyone knows the country, they'll appreciate that it is hard enough to trade across states there let alone externally, although it's improving.

When he got wind of the upcoming Indian-EU collaboration, BoJo was keen to take the wind out of the EU's sails by making an in-person trip to India and announcing a tick-box exercise eg looking at making it easier for skilled Indians to work in the UK, India to study an impact assessment on reducing tariffs on spirits.

BoJo is a gifted politician. He is only too aware that May's anticipated announcement by the EU will encourage commentators to pose the question about the UK's ties to India and future trade opportunities. And the questions will go beyond India to other Commonwealth countries where the feted opportunities have failed to materialise.

All of this made travelling to India in the midst of a pandemic look more of a rational decision.

*easier for skilled Indians to work in the UK*

Won't work Andrew, we won't be allowed to pay them 38p a week to produce clothes for Primark
