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*

Re: Britain outside the EU

Now the real fun begins:

Quote:
Ursula von der Leyen warns EU could hit UK with tariffs over Northern Ireland row
MEPs brand Brexit a 'historic mistake' before voting to ratify the UK-EU trade deal in Brussels

The European Commission president said that Brussels would not hesitate to hit Britain with trade tariffs if it failed to implement its commitments in Northern Ireland, before the European Parliament voted to ratify the deal in the final step of the years-long Brexit negotiations.

The European Commission president said enforcement mechanisms in the deal were “essential” to ensure the UK complied with level playing field rules in the trade deal and the Withdrawal Agreement, which includes the Northern Ireland Protocol.

Mrs von der Leyen’s warning came as France, embroiled in a row over fishing licences with the UK, said the EU would hit sectors such as financial services with tariffs if the UK did not properly implement the Brexit fishing agreement.

The trade deal has a dispute mechanism that can lead to tariffs being imposed if one side diverges too far from agreed common standards. The agreement’s enforcement measures also allow for cross-cutting retaliatory tariffs in a specific sector as a result of a dispute in another.

Mrs von der Leyen said, “This agreement comes with real teeth with a binding dispute settlement mechanism and the possibility for unilateral remedial measures were necessary. And let me be very clear. We do not want to have to use these tools, but we will not hesitate to use them if necessary.”

Good old “ Don Von der Leyden.”

We need to get AC12 in here as we evidence of an OCG.

That speech was all part of the final push to get the vote through the EU Parliament. That was pretty much a formality but now it's done - 600 yes, 5 no, 32 abstentions.

Just the Council to go and they were involved all along so it's pretty much done now

Yes - done. Now the next phase begins where they apply their eagle eyes to our obedience to the agreement and are already threatening us because the NI piece isn't working well.

Milk and cream sales to EU drop by 96% because of Brexit

The UK’s milk and cream exports to the EU have dropped by 96% ‘because of the post-Brexit trade deal’s red tape’, new figures show. Food and drink sales to the bloc dropped by 40% in the year to February, a report by the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) revealed.

Whilst the pandemic has certainly contributed to slowing business, the organisation, which represents more than 800 companies, has blamed the post-Brexit trade deal. Animal and plant industries have been hit the hardest, with a 79.5% drop in chicken exports behind milk and cream at 96%, followed by a 77.6% plunge in beef sales and a 75.7% dip in vegetable oils.

Re: Britain outside the EU

I'm not going to lose sleep over that, given that we only produce about three quarters of the dairy produce we consume and import pretty much all the rest of it from the EU.

There is a domestic market for everything British dairy farms produce, and it would be much more environmentally friendly for us to produce and consume our own needs as far as possible.
