Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

You’re far too pessimistic about Brexit.

Give it a few more years and I think the UK will be doing fairly well.

Look at the EU. GDP is falling, the euro has fallen to parity with the dollar and politically, things don’t look good, especially in Italy. Add in the impending winter energy shortages and I’m more than happy to be out of Europe.

The border issues at France are just them being awkward as we were never in Schengen. I’ve been to a few European countries this year and no problem on entry.

People will just give up on France and switch to Spain, Portugal and other countries. They will lose the trade.

GD- you’ll be proved right.

Would this be the Spain which has just introduced a whole load of new laws on people arriving from the UK?

It's hard to see exactly what we have truly gained in leaving the EU.

Any ideas?

I bet the Guardian spends a great deal of time looking for such cases.

Well, having journalists doing actual research certainly beats media outlets that just regurgitate Press Releases from, for example, No 10 Press Office.

Yes, but I know that the UK producers have increased production to compensate for people abandoning European suppliers.

Surely a good thing.

Not if UK producers are relatively less efficient and could be using the same capital and people to produce something else more efficiently and sell that to Belgium. Everyone wins. 

Fairly basic stuff here.

Wouldn't you say though, that when this is the level of your reply, that Brexit is not working?

Well. True! But isn't that actual journalism? A thing that the right wing press don't seem to understand.

A Sky poll on who performed best by the Tory blue rinse brigade. 50% backed Truss as the better performer. Confirms what a bigoted, thick, dangerous mob they are that are electing a new PM.

You'll be waiting quite a while I think.

The full impact of this idiocy on the NHS will be very detrimental. Losing/finding it harder to recruit skilled staff to the fact that almost all medical equipment and supplies are manufactured in France, Germany and Italy and will become much more expensive and the future is far from rosy.

This from page 1 of this thread back in September 2016.

I’ll need to look into that as I’m going back to Spain in September.

Been three times this year with no problems whatsoever.

You've got me worried!!

Think I read somewhere that visitors will be required to provide evidence they have funds of £85 per day for each day of their stay.

As to the veracity of the info I dont know.

Thanks anyway.

Doesn't sound too onerous.

That rule has been there for a long time.  It didn't apply to us until we left the EU though (no more freedom of movement).  It also doesn't mean they'll be demanding bank statements from every UK visitor.  If they think you're going to Spain to work they'll start poking around and possibly asking for proof of funds.

Pretty much all countries have border rules like this.  It's certainly something the UK ask "visitors" if we suspect they aren't just coming here as tourists.

Amongst the things to get pissed off about regarding Brexit this one is well down the list and will have almost zero impact on legit UK punters.

Yeah, I think all the teens and 20'somethings who descend on some Costa grot-hole with 20 Euros to their name in the hope of paying for a year-long drinking, shagging, and snorting binge by working for a club or bar might just be the target audience there.

A mate of mine's Dad posted a thing on FB the other day about how Brexit has went badly, and immediately a few of his gammon mates leapt to its defence. Some of the stuff they come out with is staggering. Saying that petrol isn't any cheaper in Europe as they're just back from Spain and (I shit you not) "in their book" 1.89 euros isn't any different from what we're paying.

"In their book" they've got a whole different fucking exchange rate to justify their absolute bollocks.

My family business is now buying more goods from UK suppliers rather than from Belgium or France.

 

What was stopping you buying from UK suppliers before Brexit?
