I see the Mogg has been given a new job - Brexit opportunities minister. He won't be very busy then. :sad:

A job which is on a par with "Wardrobe Master for The Emperors New Clothes" really...

This has to be the least publicised, even allowing for the plethora of fallacies already associated with Brexit, Gov't aspiration for the UK.

The facts concerning rising costs, who would ever have imagined this would be the case !..pale into insignificance really now that "Fortress Global Britain " is the true objective it seems

Ahem " the most effective border in the world "...now it could just be me, but, I think there's a few other nations that could lay claim to this title..

The public may really start to feel the (negative) affects of Brexit when the new rules on biometric passports come in for third country arrivals into the EU. Some weeks ago the head honcho at the Port of Dover was expressing his concerns at the delays that will be caused by car loads of passengers having to be disgorged and individually checked which he felt were unmanageable, not least because of the health and safety implications.

I'm sure when the delays hit the Express and Mail will be complaining bitterly about British travellers being "victimised" by France and / or the EU when the reality of the situation is that if you make yours a "third country" you face consequences.

Or - you cannot solve complex problems with simple slogans.

Picking one at random, top of my head- Get Brexit Done.

Typo, I think it should read “got done by Brexit” 😂

Woot?

No, you are seeing this all wrong. This is genius at work. Why pay a man to dig a hole and another to fill it, when you can create real jobs born of new bureaucratic hurdles? And these will be British jobs for British workers, involving quality training and transferable skills, such as putting on your high vis vest on the right way around.

Due diligence will ensure that they contracts for these jobs will go to peerless companies such as Crapita, who will be, as usual, sharing the wealth regionally and Making Britain Better.

And Peppa Pig is not the only example of the great British entrepreneurial spirit. Only the other week, I was heartened to see that a tanning and cosmetic studio had shown just how versatile British small business can be, by offering Covid testing out of the back of a van at the ferry port. I’m sure the woman standing in the dark and cold and rain administering the tests, was only to pleased to be fleecing customers 65 quid on behalf of her employer. I wonder how many nice cars and property the business owner has? Not one penny was being spend on either the employee’s or customers’ comfort. The only thing that wasn’t cheap was the price.

Oh, come on ! Don't you understand the great British entrepreneurial spirit ? Maximum profit for minimum effort, and, if possible, move your business to somewhere which has cheaper labour. Our centuries-old 'business sense' was being stifled by all the silly rules and regulations which you Continental chaps insisted on , so we had to leave and get back to good old British greed ... only we don't call it that - sounds bad !
Entrepreneurship that's the word ... shame it's one of those 'foreign Johnny' words :{

Got our hands full trying to sort out some of the c**p that got built in the UK over the last 15 or so years re façades, so we will have to decline your kind offer to re create the Berlin Wall or perhaps the Jerusalem Wall, as the latter is taller and would be visible on a good day from those French Beaches. Incidentally how is the old Trump wall going talking about that sort of thing ?

Cheers
Mr Mac

In its report, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) said it was concerned about what will happen when passenger traffic across the UK border returns to normal levels as the pandemic subsides.

And it described government plans to create the most effective border in the world by 2025 as "optimistic, given where things stand today"
Of course, in seeking to produce "the most effective border in the world", one needs to define the effect one is seeking to achieve.

Yet another one for the “you couldn’t make it up” list. I see Rees-Mogg has an article in the Sun today appealing for ideas for ex EU (now UK) regulations we could get rid of.

You would have thought after years campaigning pre- referendum, and 6 years since, if Brexit was such a good idea he’d have a list of his own by now!

They’ll never be public, but I’d put money on a lot of the suggestions being nothing to do with the EU in the first place!

Sallyann1234 10th Feb 2022 09:09

I forced myself to watch a Party political broadcast last night, boasting how many new trade agreements had been signed. Somehow it was forgotten how most of them were merely catching up on what we lost by leaving the EU.

Holy cow - I know of a bucket load. Getting even the simplist UK legislation changed isn't for the fainthearted. Hope the government have recruited a shed load of lawyers...

How about all that pesky red tape that gets in the way of a simple summary execution for ministers who tell lies?

Is the Ghost of Christmas Past still quenching jingoistic thirsts with his slake oil? It reaks of desperation.

It has been remarked that JRM is the beneficiary of the only job so far created by Brexit...

Any country's laws are full of junk that should be cleaned up. I'm sure the same applies to the UK. I'm sure 90% don't have anything to do with Brexit or the EU.

Otherwise suggest watching the excellent lecture posted by Bergerie on previous page (https://www.pprune.org/jet-blast/619...l), specifically the part about the UK having to put in place a good number of laws and regulations as part of Brexit, as none existed.

Irrespective of other, possibly more pressing events in the UK and elsewhere, thankfully the Excess has its readers morale in mind.

Quite what these glorious riches will be is unknown, but, at least the headline is in keeping with the rags notorious weather warnings and predictions...total bolleaux.

Not forgetting JR-M only has a couple or so years left before the UK has a much needed change of Gov't, so he won't be able to bring his malignant influence to bear for much longer anyway

Did the Government not know which rules they wanted to get rid of before Brexit?
