Brexit

Presumably because many British products aren't available locally??
You'd be amazed at some of the problems you have when you're living abroad. From basic stuff, like Marmite probably not being available in a French supermarket, to DVDs/Blurays or streaming services not including the original English soundtrack.

Don't know, wouldn't be surprised given the importance of their "Académie Française".

Read this article today:
Quote:Dutch TV news has aired footage of customs officers confiscating ham sandwiches from drivers arriving by ferry from the UK under post-Brexit rules banning personal imports of meat and dairy products into the EU.

Officials wearing high-visibility jackets are shown explaining to startled car and lorry drivers at the Hook of Holland ferry terminal that since Brexit, “you are no longer allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, fruit, vegetables, fish, that kind of stuff.”

Quote:Also, the fact that having one consignment with missing paperwork means the whole lorry load must be rejected. Why not just impound the ‘dodgy’ goods?? At least during the interim period, whilst firms are adjusting.
Because...
1) if the company didn't do the paperwork right for that element you can no longer assume the paperwork for everything else is right as clearly they /aren't/ doing it properly
2) what if the item is at the back of the lorry - whose gonna pay for a couple of fork lift trucks for a couple of hours to empty the lorry, remove the one item then re-pack it (and often lorries are packed in a very specific order)
3) where would the removed items be stored, who would pay for that, how long before they are destroyed, what if the item gets damaged whilst customs are holding it?

Hmmmmmm, yeah. It seems a lot of food producers basically share lorry space. In order to overcome these issues, they’d have to have a single lorry each. Which is clearly not going to happen.

Meanwhile fish from Scotland is being landed in Denmark - so it doesn’t go to waste.

That really is taking back control. Wink

If there's a chance that a catch will go to waste maybe they should just leave it in the ocean.

This has been standard for ages, though. Anyone who’s travelled outside the EU would tell you it’s exactly the same.

If it hadn’t been for the COVID crisis, I’m pretty sure this would’ve been all over the papers by now.

He probably means not catching the fish in the first place
