Brexit Phase Two - Trade

I wonder if Blair is claiming consultancy fees from the EU for advising them re Brexit.

If he is and that becomes public knowledge, I predict a first class $hit storm.

You're the guy who generates longer posts with chains of reasoning in them? You forgot to add that they're fuelled by fear, loathing and paranoia.
 
The FRONTEX regulation specifically says the previous competencies with regard to customs are unchanged..
really, now that is interesting so Frontex is really the Old Customs Co-operation council dressed up, thought that had died a death. Tricky point this. If Lisbon is now declared the font of European Customs but implies that articles 32/30 have not been withdrawn-who is actually responsible for Customs- the answer appears to whatever you think it is it's wrong, but since Juncker is determined to tax illegal activity it's not surprising. Should I ever wind up in Ireland and get stopped by their customs, it could be a see you in court moment. I'm a stickler like that. Cos Frontex contradicts Brussels. Oh and we'd be entitled to ten years rebate on the customs element- Ouch.

The draft no-deal law published by the French government today warns checks on goods at the borders could cause huge disruption.

The document says: 'In the event of withdrawal from the United Kingdom without agreement, British nationals who enjoy the right of free movement and free establishment throughout the European Union, as well as members of their family, will become nationals of third parties and will therefore in principle be subject to common law, that is to say to the requirement to present a visa to enter the French territory and to justify a residence permit to stay there.

'In case of withdrawal from the United Kingdom of the European Union without agreement, British nationals currently residing in France and their family members would be staying illegally.'
 
Revenue have a number of roles, collect of all taxes, all customs duties, all excise duties, VAT etc etc
It's still an excuse. Revenue collect the money for the Treasury but they were always split between Customs and inland. There a is simple explanation for this. Inland there is usually a continuous tax policy whereas customs depends on an ad hoc importation of goods. Now technically from 2008 anything within the EU that is an offence falls to national police forces not not existent Customs forces because Lisbon withdraws 32/30. If there is a national customs residual force it's for the external borders not the internal- the Role that the EU assumed in 2008.

Must be a very worrying time for you @irlsgt , Armageddon just around the corner and there is deck all you can do about it, especially as yer man Leo has sold you down the Swanee (aka Seine or Spree).

Really. If only our own government was as upfront and honest about brexit as the free state crowd have been.
Anywhere else you’d care to have a go at, before we become any ,more of a laughing stock?
Just asking like.

Cue massive depreciation in property values in areas such as Dordogne, and reduced taxes to regional governments and the French Government
 
The irony that Grac denies mainstream media in favour of Twitter.
You're making stuff up and confuse opinions with fact. If you're not stupid it's because.....?

Ah well French residents become Aliens and have to report for Police supervison. But surely it is the EU that determines migration policy-not the French

Should be interesting if the Gendarmes try that one.

I think Macron et al need to remember what side their pain is beurred on, there are more EU citizens living in the UK than vice versa.

Maybe more brits would move there. On the Irish border and tariffs aren’t there WTO rules on that sort of thing about what you’re proposing being frowned upon.
If we’re going buccaneering, we’re going to need a bucking idea.

Shush you denier of mainstream news. And it's not even like you can discern a poor opinion from a well founded one.

Here, have another source:

UK would still lose EU budget rebate if it decided to cancel Brexit, Brussels budget chief says

If it's the opinion of the EU budget boss that the UK would lose it's rebate, you can be rest assured that it's a possibility.

Now what other hairs would you like to split?

Only if destroying the economy of a region and declaring Brits 'aliens' is an attractive proposition for some Brits to move to that region.
 
So let's see if this is correct, a reporter sees a report and prints something about it and a poster here posts what the reporter says, and you want a copy of the document. Then you state the document does not exist. Someone is telling porkies, either the reporter or you.

I am sure you will find some natty little tweet from twitterland to keep you happy
You're making stuff up. It's one man making a statement. Go and read it. Then my original reply.

The EU only decides migration policy for citizens of other EU countries. There is no harmonisation of migration from third countries.
