Yes, that particular incident was about a lapse in allocation of permits, not a change negotiated with or as part of Brexit.

An unforeseen* exception to the "nothing will change before the end of the transition period" rule.

* I mean who could have foreseen that some things might need to be checked, or that people other than the UK (such as Guernsey, which isn't part of the UK or the EU) might be affected.

What a surprise.

It's never been very clear what the trade priorities are of the UK govt (the portion that is pro-Brexit because it will remove the supposed obstacle of the EU from getting trade deals with other countries). USA, China and India are probably the top three, but they don't seem to have any strategy for aligning them or managing the disagreements arising from things like Huawei.

Of course, they are beginners at this trade negotiation business, not having done it for 40 years.

Also ... top trumps advisers :giggle:
Also also ... being a "top" adviser to Trump is not that impressive.

Bozo is having a cabinet reshuffle. This is a thing that happens.

The chancellor Sajid Javid has resigned (rather than obey the PM to sack his advisory team). This is not a thing that happens often. The budget is due in 4 weeks.

Having flown to Europe as a family where some of us (me, my mother and one of my siblings) have EU passports and the other two (my father and the other sibling) do not, you really see the advantage of the EU passport.

Of course, when you're with people who don't have it, you still have to wait for them... but you get to sit instead of standing in line at least.

I dunno, the times I've entered Europe it wasn't rough. US Border is worse, and... I remember the UK bloke being a bit of a cunt. Maybe it's an English speaker thing.

The border queues vary hugely with time of day and where other planes have come in from. I've even experienced the UK/EU queue being redirected to the allotherpassports queue because it was shorter.

Back when the UK/EU was a thing.

You can easily get monster queues within the EU when anything unusual happens. Frankfurt ... German efficiency doesn't apply when it's their lunchtime.

We arrived in Spain the morning of February 1. We Americans went through the passport line that we would have gone through anyway, but the one UK guy we had with us went through the EU line without any problems. He said, "It's Spain. There's no way they have their systems updated yet."
