    Ouch. Minor, but the first time I've seen it personally...

    Just ordered a bunch of pesto etc from Sacla and saw on their checkout page that they're not currently delivering to Northern Ireland.

    Waiting on a hoodie from Element, been about 3 weeks.

    Got an email saying out for delivery - checked DPD tracking and stuck in Oirchot (NL) with note "Parcel in Customs Clearance: Missing or incorrect data.

    So happy with Brexit - so many wins across the board...

    Oddly enough, the rum I ordered from the Netherlands showed up with no delay or drama at all. Plus, extra bonus... they didn't charge me any VAT.

    Irony of course is that they're the first sort of people to complain about THE MADNESS OF CYCLISTS WITHOUT INSURANCE.

    But no, a vehicle heavy enough to crush you is just fine. Fill your boots.

    I'm currently waiting on something I ordered from Fanatec. UPS have treated me to 16 days of bonus delays and counting. Current ETA Friday but has already twice been delayed without notice, on both occasions just a no show with tracking showing still in Germany.

    I ordered from Fanatec in the golden age of enlightenment (2020) and received it 48hrs later.

    Obviously, I know Brexit and Covid aren't their fault, but they are charging almost £40 for this 'service'. They've also popped a message on their website saying they've suspended their money-back guarantee.

    This is hilarious: https://www.independent.co.uk/business/uk-financial-services-bank-of-england-b1806765.html

    Bank of England expects the City of London to lose £25 trillion to £89 trillion in European derivatives trading business over the next year.
    There's literally fuck all we can do to stop the EU taking that business from us (we have no inherent right to do it in the first place now we're out of the EU)... but yeah, lets stamp our feet about it anyway.

    These people, they are not stupid (I hope). I sometimes wonder if they just parrot party dogma and know the reality, or if they really believe it.

    I mean, it's pretty simple. The EU is a group aimed at consolidating power and looking out for the interests of said group. Stepping out of said group automatically means that, even with the best intent and friendship, it will no longer have your interests at heart. If it can get more powerful at your expense, it will. This is how the world works. The US and everybody else is doing exactly the same.

    They are stupid when it suits them. All our most flagwavy media are saying we must exploit the advantages Brexit gives the UK (and the advantage vaccines give us for that matter), and at the same time are up in arms every time the EU do the same.

    Bailey is savvy enough to play the stupid card on their behalf when it suits him, as the PM would approve of - surprised befuddlement at the underhand tactics of Johnny Foreigner. To do otherwise might point back to the fact this sort of thing was blazingly obvious before during and since the Brexit campaign, led by said PM.

    Unlit Sumplands!

    The government's plan to introduce checks on food and drink from the European Union this summer risks hampering the re-opening of pubs and restaurants, industry bodies have warned.

    Cheese, wine, vegetables and other imports from the continent are at risk of being delayed.

    “There would have been a full-blown crisis in Northern Ireland in January had restaurants been open and the same sort of thinking could play out for EU-UK flows,” said Shane Brennan, Chief Executive of The Cold Chain Federation.

    “It is unprecedented in terms of what we are going to experience”.

    Unlike the EU, which implemented post-Brexit checks on goods coming from the UK on January 1st, the government has opted for a phased approach in order to give businesses time to prepare.

    On April 1st UK border officials will begin requesting Sanitary & Phytosanitary paperwork for animal and plant imports like meat and eggs. Three months later, on July 1st, all goods arriving into Britain from EU member states will face a full range of customs, security and health checks.

    June Mummery former Brexit Party MEP and seafood company owner is distraught that Brexit hasn't made her rich and in fact quite problematic.

    She's joined by Lance Foreman Brexiteer and owner of a smoked salmon business who wants compensation for Brexit related cost...

    Shameless.

    Shameless, idiotic, greedy, actions have consequences. I mean we could go on but you know it's ok because they've got their freedom from those EU laws that control their lives, the EU laws which they can't recall when asked for a legitimate example. But I suppose I'm judging them too hard, they've just had a different opinion and all opinions are valid in the marketplace of ideas. Apparently.

    No money for public sector pay rises but plenty to plant pro-Brexit propaganda in a bunch of different newspapers:
