Consequences Of Brexit [Part 9] Read First Post Before Posting

Vaati

Let me make this perfectly clear - any personal attacks will get you a suspension. The moderating team is not going to continually issue warnings. If you cannot remain civil and post within forum rules then do not bother to contribute.

 

In addition to remoaner we are also not going to allow the use of libdums or liebore - if you cannot behave like adults and post without recourse to these childish insults then please refrain from posting. If you have a problem with this then you all know where the helpdesk is.

Northern Ireland least affected by Brexit, according to the ONS.

 

 


Is the reason behind Frosty’s insistence on triggering Article 16 of the N.I. Protocol getting clearer yet? 😉

"In a communication seen by the Financial Times, a US commerce department official stated that talks with the UK on easing metals tariffs could not move ahead.

The official cited US concerns at British threats to trigger Article 16"

More jobs for British workers is a Brexit positive.  There is nothing bad about British workers having the opportunity to work both more hours and having more choices where they can find work.

I couldn't give a monkeys about scaremongering regarding alleged shortages of gammon, turkey or anything else at Christmas. I've just returned from a shopping trip at my local Morrisons where there was piles of British beef reduced.  The offer price is £5.99 a kilo and the reductions today lowered the price to £3.60 a kilo. I've now got enough British beef in my freezers to last well past Easter . The icing on the cake is that Wetherspoons are still selling guest ales at £1.99 a pint.  I enjoyed a very nice Christmas ale 5.4% before I returned home with the hoard of British beef.  Times have never been so good.

Le French fishermen are threatening to go ahead with a pre-Christmas blockade of British goods entering Calais.

 

UK and EU settle fishing row but French fishers vow to go ahead with blockade

 

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/dec/12/france-drops-threat-of-trade-war-over-post-brexit-fishing-rights

 

Paris, London and Brussels have dropped talk of a trade war and appeared to settle a dispute over post-Brexit fishing licences, but angry French fishers threatened to go ahead with a pre-Christmas blockade of British goods entering Calais.

 

The European Commission and the French government signalled satisfaction with the result of an intensive fortnight of negotiations as the UK and Channel Islands governments agreed to issue 83 more operating licences before an EU deadline.

 

The offer did not fully meet the demands of Emmanuel Macron’s government, however, and fishers in Brittany said they would go ahead with a planned blockade of Calais on 23 December.

 

French vessels imposed a similar blockade at Calais, described at the time as a warning shot, in November. A vessel run by DFDS, a Danish shipping company, and a P&O ferry were forced to wait outside the port, the biggest entry point to the continent for British goods.

 

 

I remember the good old days, when we were still members of the EU and we could simply bung the EU another few £billion to distribute to the French farmers and smooth things over.

 

I wonder if those Royal Navy warships that Pretty Stupid has threatened to sink migrant boats with will be used to break the blockade?
