The Consequences of Brexit [part 5] Read 1st post before posting

Recommended Posts

So, "3,500 service personnel held at readiness, including regulars and reserves, in order to support any government department on any contingencies they may need."

 

Of course, moving emergency supplies is exactly the job well covered by logistics companies, that have far more manpower and kit available to do it.

 

Doesn't sound like the no-deal planning is going well..... :suspect:

Surprise , surprise  the EU are also planning for a no deal brexit. Hauliers wont have to apply for permits for a nine-month period, Planes to be allowed to fly to and from the EU and UK financial services in certain areas to be recognised as equivalent to the EU's for one or two years.

What happens after the temporary period? It also says in the Mail..

"However, they would be barred from flying between EU airports, or operating services from Europe to the US." and " The document made clear that air traffic between the EU and UK would be 'interrupted' from March if there is no Brexit deal."

 

limits the airlines a bit doesn't it?

Also, haulier licenses doesn't address customs arrangements, businesses that rely on JIT are done.. basically (unless we're really not going to control our borders).

 

Lorry queues at Dover may back up to Maidstone or beyond

Totally, hence the likes of easyJet are moving.... into the EU. Best of both worlds.

 

Even British Airways is looking at becoming a Spanish company.

You should really read the fine print of that EU document. No cabotage for planes nor for trucks, and financial services interim measures are solely for derivatives and related instruments: bye bye asset management services, retail and corporate banking services, etc.

 

It’s measures to keep the lights on in the U.K. and to mitigate the worst of the short-term impacts on the EU27: there are no freebies in there. None.

 

The noises from Brussels via the usual sources (which have yet to be proven wrong as a matter of record), are that the Commission has washed its hands off the U.K., and that the only traction the U.K. could still expect lies with the Council.

 

TM got what she deserved out of her bit of no-deal brinksmanship yesterday: you’re on your own.

Any Brextremists getting giddy yesterday about a no deal exit should take a look at this morning's Prime Minister's questions. 

 

MP after MP of all parties, but significant numbers of Tories, getting on their feet raising question after question about the impact of no deal on their individual contituencies.

 

Opposition to any no deal is just about the only thing uniting the Commons at the moment.

but not so much they are willing to take the measures needed to do something to stop it.

British Airways are already a Spanish company in that it belongs to the International Airlines Group registered in Madrid.

 

What they are planning to do is move their management to Madrid and re register their fleet with the E-XXXX numbering rather than the G-XXXX numbering to allow them to continue to fly. In reality, the simplest way to do this would be to fully merge with Iberia and rebadge and re register the entire fleet.

 

Another thing the patriots and nationalists who voted leave probably didn't foresee was the end of one our our greatest national brands.

If this what the EU wants then it shows is that they never had anything but punishment in mind nothing more nothing less.

But no longer have to pay subs. Especially when the subs were so high compared to other members.

Do you Brexiteers have a special facebook page or crank US website where you get all your fake news from?

 

The UK is the second largest economy in the EU but pays the eighth highest contribution. This means that six countries with smaller GDPs than us pay in more.

 

Yet another widely believed lie from the leave campain, that discredits the 2016 vote.
