The Brexit Consequences Thread

Who promised access to the single market without having to fill in forms etc?
They didn't mention forms at all...which is a lie of omission...remember this?

"absolutely nobody is talking about threatening our place in the single market."

If they'd said:

"You'll need to set up another company to trade with the EU"

then everyone would have been aware.
 
To be fair the claim was "frictionless trade" when with a little more precision it should have been "frictionless trade unless the fFrench start being w*nkers"

But most people would guess that.
Already pointed out that it appears people who voted to leave the single market are now complaining that they have to comply with the rules for non members.

How about the UK *******?

Despite claims by Boris Johnson that there would be tariff-free trade after the Brexit transition period ended on 31 December, consumers who bought items from EU websites are being chased for import duties, VAT and admin fees – which, they say, render the purchase uneconomic.

Britons buying from EU websites hit with £100 customs bills

Or is it, shock, simply the consequences of raising trade barriers?

I was very reliably informed before Christmas that Mercedes had a contingency plan to assemble knock down kits in the UK in the event of tariffs for commercial vehicles
Which they would do, having a few hundred million invested in marketing alone until 2025. They'd then have assessed their bottom line and made longer term decision. Which they'd already made plain.

which would have been no problem to a company that has done this on a global scale for many decades, and who’s Sprinter factory is just a short hop over the North Sea.
 
BMW may sell more cars elsewhere but they make more profit in the UK than anywhere else.
Relates to purchase taxes in various countries
That why I said that the U.K. is there 3rd largest global market. Behind Europe and the US.

But we haven’t lost access to the single market.

And you don’t HAVE to set up another company to trade with EU member states.

None of those charges are tariffs
 
The Vienna Convention is unequivocal, where diplomatic protections are afforded to representatives of sovereign states.

One minute the EU are complaining about the UK breaching international law (when it wasn't breached), and the next they're soliciting a clear breach of a Convention. Moreover, it's the Convention that deals with the interpretation of other Conventions.

**** them off at the high port, and quote their hypocrisy back at them.
Why on earth would we give even more ar*eholes diplomatic immunity.

A familly still waiting for justice.

So we see that whilst in the EU, the EU was ok for the U.K. to collect the VAT and then give it back to the EU In the form of our National contribution (tenner, that’s where the money the EU gets from member states, VAT. (The reason John Major introduced VAT on some a tic fuel and we have:had a tampon tax - people at the moment are told what has to have VAT on it, and is moving towards what has BAT on it and what that VAT rate will be)

So these VAT charges is just the EU desperate to make sure it’s plugging the jokes by our loss.
 
funnily enough, German traders not involved in selling tat to teen monglets, are introducing fixed price €6 shipping and no surcharges. Funnily enough, Remainers and the Guardian don’t mention that.
Any chance of a link to that please. I only ask as I’d like to be able to reference it when speaking with remainers who read the Guardian
