Just in the local Morrisons. No milk, no tomatoes and the fresh produce shelves pretty much emptied.

Much as I would like to connect this to Brexit I doubt that's the case. 100% of Morrisons milk is British, currently their tomatoes are from Morocco and won't have been affected by Brexit.

I would suggest a truck has failed to arrive on time from the RDC.

Suddenly, in a corner of England the penny dropped. But, alas it was too late.

The reverse also applies of course. We will have EU drivers exceeding speed limits with impunity here, if you're happy to see that.

Since this will mean a loss of income on both sides, I suspect it won't be long before a suitable arrangement will be drawn up to exchange data,

No need to be so crusty, AO. You've already had the last slice. There wasn't a crumb left.

Far be it from me to suggest, that, had these monkeys been involved with negotiations from the onset, the UK may have ended up with a far better deal......or even, they are clearly more intelligent than the UK's hand picked team of "negotiators ".......

A NEW Rejoin the EU party has been founded in the UK with the promise to force a second Brexit referendum.

Volt UK was registered with the electoral commission earlier this month and is hoping to win a future referendum on EU membership, despite the UK finally leaving the bloc less than a month ago. The group is part of a pan-European movement (Volt Europa) which has operations in 29 countries around the continent.

Volt UK co-president Alex Haida told Redaction Politics: “People were offered change, they were given a stone to throw but they didn’t know they were throwing it at their own house. We will see the impact of Brexit, we just need to give it some time.

“We have ex-Lib Dem people, ex-Conservatives and ex-Labour, all of them coming to us because they lost their political home. People just lost trust in politics and we see that especially here with Brexit, that’s why all these campaigns repeatedly blamed someone except themselves.

The Labour Party has the chance to come up with real changes but they don’t, they are too afraid to lose power. They don’t even have it, it’s just frustrating. That’s why I totally understand people leaving the Labour Party right now and coming to us.

“Starter’s a smart guy, he knows what he is doing, but it’s not everything to be intellectual about something, you shouldn’t forget you still have people who want you to change the country.

“We must look at the European Union again as something worth joining to give people more opportunities in terms of cultural exchange, opening up our own society, educational benefits and trade.”

Maike Bohn, co-founder of the group, added: “The feeling of all of a sudden having to prove that we belong here has been quite hurtful for many of us. Of course we know that Brexit means changes and Brexit means the UK has to take stock of who is in the country from the EU. But what has accompanied all this is a very hostile rhetoric right from the top.

“From Theresa May’s citizens of nowhere to Amber Rudd saying our companies need to have lists of foreigners to Boris Johnson saying last Christmas that EU citizens have made themselves far too comfortable in the UK for far too long. Those are the things that really hit home and hurt people.”

The group claims to have more than 40,000 supporters across the continent.

Far too soon, even without the vagaries of the UK FPTP electoral system will fail to make an impression. And I say that as someone who dearly wants the UK back where it belongs, in the EU, and fully in not in with a pile of UK opt outs.

As pointless as the Reform party.

Shame ORAC hasn't mentioned about the fishing crisis. Nice to see that Rees Mong is being as nasty as ever. No doubts the fish are happy as they will not be caught. Thank god I never had managers like that in the military. Had a couple of civvy ones that are as vile mind. Oh, that is being nasty to Jacob. I did hear that his MP staff do get great boxing day gifts, better than the ones IDS gave to his staff. Then again IDS doesn't run asset management for offshore people.

In both Scotland and England I believe it is a paperwork problem - either not knowing or getting the assistance to prepare that required - or insurance fees that incorrect paperwork on a combined load will leave one shipper responsible for the loss of the entire load.

I believe, from reports, the government is providing assistance, considering grants and/or short term compensation whilst the issues are resolved, and working to ensure longer term solutions.

I’ll wait, as with all theses stories, till things have been running for a couple of months to see where the true problems lie - and I accept there will be some.
