If all EU nations take similar measures - as they probably will -
You keep dreaming. In the last 10 years I haven't seen such BS to emanate from any other European country, by a country mile. Same with the draconian airside security policy, just by the way. It's a UK thing, shoot yourself in the foot and cut off your nose, tax everything to death and then blame consequences on the EU in Daily Mail. How the government stance on the Heathrow 3rd runway helps deter air travel is for everyone around to have a good laugh. Hypocrisy is paramount.
