Like I said, the cheese producer needs to adjust.
Is that a euphemism for downsize? As he's proved that exporting to the EU is uneconomic as are transport costs to countries like the US which Liz Truss advised him to do.

Would you Remainers have preferred to have been part of the EU's vaccine procurement and distribution policy?
You need to try and understand that answering a question you asked with factual information is not an attempt to "rubbish your assertion".

What about my question, vis-a-vis Covid?

My assertion was firmly rooted in the Covid situation. A matter of life and death.

Follow the rules.

I don't link the very high number of excess deaths to Brexit nor do I link the vaccination programme to it. We had the freedom to follow our own course here inside or outside the EU.

Brexit LIVE: British expats 'in tears' as Spain to deport 500 under new rules ‘Dream over'

Spanish police and immigration officials expect to deport around 500 UK citizens within weeks with targets already earmarked to be picked up and sent home for not having the correct paperwork to remain. Authorities have previously turned a blind-eye to Brits not legally registered in Spain but under Brexit rules they have to be out of the country by March 31 when they will be deemed as illegal immigrants as their 90-day legal stay comes to an end.....
snippet
Fellow returning expat Shaun Cromber voted Leave but said he did not believe Brexit would end his Spanish lifestyle.

He said: "Yes I voted out, but I didn’t realise it would come to this.

Re: Britain outside the EU

Do I understand this correctly?

People (Brits) go to live in Spain but don't bother with the required paperwork . . . and then cry when they get deported.

Shame eh

Since your post didn't mention COVID, and it hadn't been mentioned for a couple of weeks in this thread, can you understand why the connection wasn't made?

Even though the Covid situation was reasonably deducible, it's mentioned now.

According to the Br'Express article, they applied but were rejected.

He said: "Yes I voted out, but I didn’t realise it would come to this.

"My application has been rejected and we are on our way home – my wife is in tears, she’s distraught if I’m honest and I’m not too happy at the prospect of returning back to the UK.

“I’ve loved living on the Costa del Sol and after five years can’t believe it has come to this.

"We applied but got rejected and so have no choice, although long term I think the Spanish will regret chucking us out of Spain.”
