Impossible to fault the views of some EU media really. Some may feel they are just being, well, jolly churlish because the UK, erm, "won".

Some of us feel they summarise matters perfectly.

Brexit induced geographical confusion ?
Yesterday's 'Today' on the Beeb, had Ms Kearney saying "and over the sea in Truro" ...!!
I had to don my 'Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells' outfit and point out that, much as we might wish otherwise, Cornwall, and its only cathedral city, is still firmly connected to 'Emmet' territory ! Possibly the lady intended to say Tresco .... ?

Or, since she was talking about fireworks - St Ives, where the display has been cancelled, You call 'em Emmets, we call 'em Grockles but the local NHS calls 'em Vectors.

Another bumper Brexit bonus!
 
As the UK has made itself a "third country" how on earth can it complain when France treats it as one??

I really hope that thoroughly inconveniences any Brexiteers hoping to drive to their second (or even first) homes in Spain by road or rail. Serves them bloody well right!

Should boost business on the Harwich / Hoek van Holland and Hull / Rotterdam ferries for people trying to get home to the Low Countries, Germany, Austria or further afield.

Ah, but, this time last year you and others might recall, the chaps were in full flow " we won, get over it ! " or "the people have spoken ! " to offer but two oft regurgitated phrases of jingoistic triumphalism. Of course, not being able to celebrate New Year didn't stop many from celebrating the "freedom" from the cursed EU.

As potential disasters go, this one had more warning signs than a volcano spewing forth lava and crud...so here's a little synopsis of the "success" thus far and, apparently, come next year, the paperwork will increase significantly. Obviously those who "negotiated" this fantastic deal cunningly failed to mention it would be a fantastic job creation scheme !...and to add to the fun, we await the appearance of the vacuous Ms "oh please, just call me Britannia" Truss and her own inimitable contribution..

For info there’s some debate ATM about whether Eurotunnel/The Guardian have got that story right, currently the likes of the French Consulate in London’s website/French Interior Ministry’s website is not showing any change to the rules for Brits resident in the EU who have regularised their status.

Maybe there’s an amendment on the way?

Bit quick on the draw, there - article doesn't appear to include any complaints? Thought the "triumphalism" came from the other side?

I didn't infer that any would be travellers had complained, more that the UK is in no position to cry 'foul' because it is a situation entirely of their own making.

Maybe, maybe not.

The normal French way is to declare a rule and see if it flies. They do not worry about legal niceties or current regulations. If there is too much of an outcry, they may backtrack to a more tenable position.

Examples:

Some government bigwig's child has a misadventure in a swimming pool. Immediate decree to fit covers and alarms to all pools, The specified alarms and covers did not exist at the time. Garden ponds not covered by any rules. Outcome: manufacturers eventually caught up, kids can still drown in garden ponds.

Economically inactive EU citizens resident in France were suddenly ejected from existing medical arrangements and required to take out private medical insurance "from the first Euro". At the time, private medical insurance did not exist in France so could not be bought. Getting any other European insurer to cover you "from the first Euro" was virtually impossible as most policies did not cover pre-existing conditions and none of them met the requirements of French law. Outcome: French government taken to the EU court, fined and regulations rolled back.

The pool fiasco passed us by as we had a hot tub. The health insurance debacle struck home though!
