I have found it quite amusing to read all the UK bashing since the end of the transition, what is happening know is quite what I expected and have said that it would in past posts within these hollowed threads on Brexit that there will be disruptions until people become more aware on the new operating construct of trade between UK/EU.
Sorry but google can't help me find a post of yours where you predict various sector will have to simply kiss goodbye to basically all their exports (like shellfish industry and tour artists), care to point me to one ?
Seriously, you seems to treat this like if it was simply an adjustment variable. But even with experience of the operations, many businesses who were viable before brexit will not be anymore due to the added cost of the NTB. The livelihood of thousands of people is at stake.
Of course, I understand it's easier to just state big concept and never really look at practical consequences, that's brexiters in chief modus operandi for 5 years after all, and it worked pretty well for them
. I wonder though, do you have an idea what could be the coming opportunities for the people working in the 2 sectors mentionned above ?
Stand by my statement, that it is an adjustment period on both sides of the border its the market that says whom will flourish and who will not, its up to the SME if whether or not they pass on the costs in thew new trading relationship and the consumer if they are prepared to accept those costs, you only have to go back through the threads and i have been consistent on that line
I see, if the market eventually dictates thousands of businesses go belly up, other thousands takes a big hit and only a few manage to thrive, it won’t be because brexiters never looked at the actual consequences. There’s just the bloody market to blame !
The threats against custom agents in NI-UK border is rather interesting though.
Can't recall if you were one of them A101 but I remember a lot of brexiter against May's backstop deal arguing the backstop was unecessary because a technological border would make the trick.
It's a shame they are so silent now they could put in place such invisible technological border between NI and GB !
Didn't you ever advocate such border operations was doable in time A101 ?
Yes was me who said it, its Brussels whom said it could not be done its Brussels implementing the rules at NI ports.
But if we went on your train of thought then both the EU/UK could scrap the NIP and go back to the status quo don't you think as until NI votes NI is still sovereign territory of the UK in which the EU agrees within the Belfast Agreement and the WA
I’m talking about the electronic border brexiters were confident to have ready to implement in such no time that the backstop in May’s WA was useless.
What are they waiting to implement it, at least by bits, for the Irish Sea Border ? I mean, if Brussels “said” it could not be done it just takes the world beating UKG to demonstrate it can. Should be easy.
Not sure how my train of thoughts brings you to such an assertion, scraping the NIP is certainly not a solution, and not an option anyway.
The NIP is UK Prime Minister negotiated solution, he got a wide majority in Parliament by campaigning for it during last GE, it’s simply time to make it work as envisaged.
Unfortunately it seems he didn’t give much thought about it. Remember 2 weeks ago ? “if somebody asks you (to fill a form) you tell them to ring up the Prime Minister & I will direct them to throw that form in the bin”
But now he’s begging EU to extend the grace period….. (when he could have unilateraly decided to extend the Transition Period last summer but carelessly decided no to)https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-55913907
Sorry but it simply shows that just like a lot of others topic linked to Brexit, no magic exists. As M. Barnier said in most of his speaches, brexit have consequences.
In this case, full border procedures with no way to go back to a status quo or hide it : EU and UK are now in different regulation and custom territory by UK decision
, with all its implications.
In order to be old and wise, one must first be young and dumb.
