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.

Shock horror:

Quote:Brexit: 'I was asked to pay an extra £82 for my £200 coat'
"I had no idea at all I was going to be charged any more for deliveries after Brexit. The extra costs were definitely a bit of a shock."

Ellie Huddleston, a 26-year-old Londoner, thought she would treat herself to some new work clothes in the January sales.

Having spotted a bargain, she placed an order for a coat and a number of blouses from two of her favourite clothes brands based in Europe.

But both deliveries were delayed, held up in customs checks for at least a week, she says.

She was surprised when she then received a text from courier company DPD, containing a link asking her to pay £58 in customs duties, VAT and additional charges for her £180 order.

I’m not being funny, but this is nothing new. You would have to pay these charges if you ordered and imported stuff from America and so on (or even Jersey, actually).

Even the Irish customs website tells people how much they would need to pay importing stuff from abroad. People really are dumb if they assumed there would be nothing extra to pay.

Just means the cheapest way to buy stuff from abroad will be on holiday from now on. Meanwhile, the export market for EU goods to the UK will likely dry up (except for bespoke things).

I can remember many years ago, I used to go on holiday with Mum and Dad to France (usually around the spring bank holiday). Coming home, there was usually a customs queue at the port for all those duty frees.

Definitely gone back to the 80s. Cool

Don't you have to declare the stuff you buy abroad upon your return from holiday?

Of course. But worn clothes and things in your luggage, I doubt they’d be looking for those. Just things in shopping bags.

It’s also a bit hard to prove someone is coming in with a nearly new iPad (unless you’ve got the packaging and so on).

They’ll be looking for booze, fags, contraband, stuff like that.

Agreed.

But you have to remember. People were told that apart from getting rid of the immigrants, nothing would change.
Any predictions of massive red-tape, delays, shortages were all met with a cry of 'Project Fear'. Which the Dumb believed hook line and sinker.

Great news - we’re moving to the Pacific Undecided

UK applying to join Asia-Pacific free trade pact CPTPP

So rather than exporting goods a shorter distance across the Channel to the E.U. (Britain's largest trading partner) it's looking to focus its exports at higher cost and higher pollution to the atmosphere to nations half way around the world?  That seems to counter efforts to mitigate climate change these days.
