In response to the charge: is it letting the facts get in the way of a good story? No it's not as it states them.

I went through Schipol last year, automated passport e-scanners, no people required, very quick. Only for EU citizens though.

Re: [Updated] The UKs future relationship with the EU

I went to Spain last week ......no issues. Even went through the “ EU” channel.

Will be going to France next month and expect zero issues.

I suggest, along with the thousands that have travelled since the end of January this is the case.

..... and we still have our jobs, the Pound is at a recent high, Germany is political crisis (were not). The dog might well be dead, but the cat hasnt shat itself.

Btw, regarding financial services. Thatll sort itself out. Euro land is most wobbly - nothing to back the Euro up now. The world is unlikely to trust Euroland as a main financing centre.

Colin - stop whinging.

I think your gripe's with Colin for jumping to conclusions and not with the article which reported the real reasons for the delay.

Re: [Updated] The UKs future relationship with the EU

The EU needs us far more.

Plus put the Royal Navy in our fishing waters and kick out any fishing vessels we want.

Especially thos big buggers that can take the entire stock with one sweep.

Re: [Updated] The UKs future relationship with the EU

EU's requirements don't seem to be going down too well with BoJo. To the Government's credit, it's made a strong case but the UK has handed the negotiating edge to the EU by insisting upon a December deadline.
https://news.sky.com/story/boris-joh...nable-11935283

So, maybe the obvious thing would be for the UK to ramp up relationships with other countries, to put some pressure on the EU?
The opposite has happened!

Maybe like the EU does, the rest of world just needs to understand that need us more than we need them, and they'll have to come knocking on our door?
