More likely, someone will ask, "Shall we have 'just a market' where we can sell stuff easily? We could call it the EEC."

The 3 independent UK countries will say, "Blimey, cracking idea, let's ask to join."

"Non!", says General de Macaroon.

But we'll keep trying. We are tryers.

Indeed we are. We have been trying the patience of the EU sorely for years.

I seldom post in this entertaining thread, but in keeping with the C&P tradition of the thread, I thought this was too good to not share.

Helluva Year!Boris Johnson's 2020 Review

Brilliant ! although you do realise such posts are akin to sedition and heresy for some on here ? ... and not forgetting disparaging .of course.

Not totally correct.
It was and still is perfectly acceptable and legal for non UK residents to buy UK lottery tickets. However, they can't buy tickets online but provided they are physically in the UK then they can buy tickets and win any of the prizes.

Ha! Yes, but how do I transfer my £150 millions to a French bank account??? With the end of Free Capital Movement, will I have to carry cash in my spare tyre next time I go back to my home in France??? Or will I still be able to use my BVI account?? (joke of course, no need to send the Taxman)

I believe the small print on the back of that winning ticket (and the occasional losing ones) says you must be legally resident in the UK to play. But I guess you are right, non-residents are free to buy them. And I say on behalf of the UK, Thank You! All donations gratefully accepted.

Just wondering if those good people who voted to remain are disappointed that the traffic chaos that was predicted at the cross Channel ports occurred while we were members of the EU while the traffic has run smoothly now we have left?

Are you for real? Where have you been for the last three years? The damage caused by Brexit is ALREADY so big, you will plainly see in a few months to which extend today's cancelled projects are showing in the books. Talk to scientists and doctors or nurses and engineers, they will give you an update!. Don't ask me how I know. As for traffic, seeing how so few lettuce and cucumber lorries crossed today, you better start freezing your garden grass cuttings.....

Dear me, what an odd comparison - maybe because the problems occured due to an unexpected public health issue, where as anybody with any sense has planned to avoid the ports around new year.

LTNman - more likely to be wondering why those who wished to leave lack the intelligence to understand the effect on traffic of lockdown and a Bank Holiday combined !!! But then, had that level of intelligence existed, they wouldn't have voted to leave

LTMan
Do you actually think there is that much traffic at the moment. Everybody is either off work or delaying shipments. 16 trucks New Year’s Eve on first shipment, with 6 turned back according to my shipper K&N. Wait until next week, or more lightly the week after. Also please bare in mind Boris has U turned again and delayed implementation in the UK for 6 months on protocols. Tarmac / concrete maybe dry by then on Nigel,s lawn for them to park. Please feel free to quote me in 6 months if there is no disruption, though please use a reputable source not a newspaper / TV with agenda be it right or left.

Kind regards

With apologies for the aviation content, here is one of those areas where those blue sky thinkers (understand airheads who have no time for detail) have scorched another trail into the past:

Sure it technically works without an EWA (you can receive the signal) but Jeppesen et al will remove the minima / code and the FAS from the Nav data in the next update/AIRAC beyond the date specified in the gov.uk document (Jun 21).

Flyer article

FLYER
asked the CAA what would happen if the UK failed to negotiate access to the EGNOS service. The full reply is:

“Subject to the outcome of the ongoing negotiations, we believe that the European Satellite Services Provider (ESSP) will terminate EGNOS Working Agreements (EWA) with aerodromes, affecting the provision of LPV operations. These will then be NOTAM’d as Not Available. The LNAV or LNAV/VNAV operating minima are unaffected.

“Following termination of the EWA, UK aerodromes will not be supported by the certified service provider/ANSP, i.e. ESSP, although we understand that the signal-in-space will still be received by avionics equipment.

“The CAA is not expecting pilots to disable EGNOS within the equipment and indeed, on some models such an action may not be straight forward.

“The CAA is therefore content to let the avionics box select the highest integrity approach mode available, but any approach should only be flight-planned and flown to the LNAV minima. LPV operations are not available.”
For the non-pilots on here, an LPV approach is a satellite-based approach system received by equipment on board the aircraft, offering a low infrastructure alternative to traditional landing systems. The UK needs to fix this.

What a bunch of numpties.

Here is a an issue that many are not aware of. At the moment much of the traffic over the channels are due to backlog due to the earlier shutdown. I have goods company from Germany, that has been stuck in a warehouse with DHL since 18.th of December. My understanding so far from DHL is that this will enter the UK under regulations as it would have been before Brexit.
There is still a massive amount of backlog on goods coming into the UK, which will not yet necessarily be under the new Brexit customs regulations.
