The Brexit Consequences Thread

Blast from the past:

Once upon a time in HM Customs and Excise

But fear not, HMRC are on the case. Whatever that might be....

Thus roll out their new Customs Declaration Service in phases from August with a fallback contingency onto an uprated version of the old CHIEF system and then buy in the "Single Window" customs system from Singapore.

Oh and selectively ease border checks until all that works not to mention recruiting another 5000 staff.

All sub optimal of course but they have been given the shitty end of the stick largely thanks to Government infighting.

Always going to be the case that EC would give two fingers to the White Paper proposal because they don't trust HMRC to slice and dice the 12,500+ EU import tariffs let alone the Import VAT on stuff from outside the EU which, come 2022, changes so that UK would be collecting for EU.
I remember that well but then we need to be careful of assumptions. Single window might work for Singapore, where few distinctions were made. CHIEF can be renewed but then again the Issues surrounding the provision of hard and software has always been a bone of contention for the U.K. where providers tend to walk away from problems . One of the good things about chief was it’s override system which didn’t interfere with non contentious freight and provided COW . However it’s worth noting that the tariff headings were already in existence back in the 70’s to provide the stats required by the treasury, They predate, the “Harmonised Tarriff” by some measure. More to the point we have rights in the issue that go back to Common market days. But then we got rid of many of the trained staff didn’t we...... to comply with the EU8O

Enjoy. Or maybe not

Selectively then it would seem on the basis of “subsidiarity” I do criticise the Legal system for not being even handed, I can criticise on a fair basis. If the British Government can selectively promote HR for Matrix chambers to make a bomb out of immigration issues, shouldn’t the same be true of Banking retail misappropriations? AFter all the EU says they should. Conveniently Labour removed the 1988 Banking act, in 2005. And I have a letter from David Lammy re legal aid which interprets National interest as nothing more than convenience. Unfortunately ( I don’t know if it’s changed since) but the ECJ won’t hear a case from the U.K. unless it’s To challenge an SC hearing. So you see the argument of non implementation works both ways.
Internal issues where blame can only lay on UK entities and the ECJ keeping to its remit!
 
If you wish! I still think you're fooling yourself but so be it!
The point being that if my bosses told me policy was changing to implement EU policy, which they frequently did, there is no way I can accept that the Government didn’t. The alternative was they had their own agenda and they lied- it being a Labour Government at that point. Tories got in in 2010 and I retired in ‘11, being the point. That would be three administrations from ‘ 97 . The ones that promised a referendum and failed to deliver.
 
Genuine.
If only I was a bit younger!
