    True, I remember that.

    Even though the one image I will never get out of my memory is the Corbmeister appearing on some TV show in a white fur coat (and that 6/10 Remain verdict iirc).

    Their complete lack of any opposition to a super hard, super veiny Brexit is a major contributing factor. Yet was only reason two or three why I thought Corbyn's Labour was unelectable

    If you want a reminder of the part trash like the Daily Heil played, reddit facepalm subreddit has one of their front covers the day after the 2016 vote with a current story about brexit food shortages

    "arrogant and out of touch elite" sounds like the tories

    A few of our dearly departed former forumites will be spinning in their emo-quit graves at all this talking down of the greatest PM we never had.

    I felt the impact of Brexit for the first time yesterday.

    I received a shipment at work, 5 copies of an industry directory we're mentioned in. We get these every year. This year it came with a 27Ä bill from DHL.

    We sent an order to Belgium using the new DHL system last week. Seemed to go ok, some charges for clearance, bit of duty that I was expecting. Less margin, but we'll cope....

    Then today, another invoice from DHL for extra duties and the whole Belgium VAT @ 21% for £1200.

    I was expecting the duties (as our stuff is made in China, so isn't tariff free), but hadn't figured for the import VAT too. Our account was set up to deal with imports coming in, where we pay all that stuff. If no one pays it, it's stuck in customs till someone pays up.

    So I'm sure you could argue it's my fault for not investigating the process properly....but this is what's facing 1000s of businesses. We know a bit about exporting and importing beyond the EU, but for many it might be a new experience!

    Off to register as an electronic Estonian. While will take time when I could be playing Shadows of Tsu...I mean working on my business!

    That was a sex arse - went through tariff-free as a sample/gift, but still incurred customs clearance charges.

    @Salaman, sorry mate, I couldn't ship the special cleaning solution - don't have a EU or new UK chemical safety certificate. Just give it a good rinse out under the hot tap (not boiling!), and make sure it's properly dried. Apply a light coating of lube for long term storage.

    I hope the Estonian government doesn't check your online presence as part of the application process. :-)

    @Salaman It's all legit! That was a side project that didn't go anywhere :)
    I'm easily distracted, but it's the boring stuff that makes the money!

    Although I am intrigued by a video of skateboard manufacture a friend sent me from China yesterday, they can custom print just one..... And I have to keep stopping myself ordering a container of pizza spinners, those will be big in 2021!

    I find the whole Estonian e-residency thing fascinating. I kind of want to sign up as one, despite not having any reason to.

    THERE ARE NO OTHER FORUMS (or at least no others that look like they're from 2005).

    Been off work for a week, just done the fruit and veg order for tomorrow and noticed we have had quite a few substantial price increases (in some cases 70%) on goods from Europe. Delays in transportation and the weather in Spain are causing havoc. Obviously once weather improves they may go down again but hauling is no where near running at full levels either, so they may not.

    Itís a bit of a trifling matter really. Seems normal once you get used to it.
