Venezuela about to go down the tubes...a lesson for Corbyn and the Labour Party perhaps?

When Blair abolished duty free, EU regulations.
Right, so duty free remains abolished.
EU regulations will reinstate the booze cruise? How exactly?
There is duty free at present - but not within the EU. If you travel to/from say, the USA you can purchase duty free goods at the airport. However the country you fly to may impose restrictions on quantity.

Within the EU there is no duty payable at port of entry between member states, therefore the concept of duty free doesn't exist. It's just that you pay the duty that is applicable in the country that you purchase. Thus if the duty of 200 B&H is far less in France, you are perfectly entitled to go to France and buy tens of thousands of the coffin nails, provided you can prove they are for your personal use. Same with booze etc.

Blair didn't abolish duty free - being a member of the EU did that.

Coming out of the EU will mean a return to the good old/bad old days of red lane/green lane at ports of entry and being waterboarded as to why you've got over the allowance of baccy, and no, that fortified wine does not class as table wine.

It's all very well posting shunt and saying it was tongue in cheek, but I was under the impression that CA is for serious discussion. It seems to me that many posters on here just brain dump any old cack without even thinking about, which is what I thought the NAAFI was for.

I still raised, in a light harted manner, 'the rule of unintended consequences' if you charge a tax in one part of the country at one level and another in another part like State Tax in USA, someone will turn it to their advantage. ie white vans full of white cider to make a buck or two.
 
RE: Corbyn/Labour wanting to follow Veneuzeala.

What you have to understand is Corbyn and his ilk have a vision: socialism. Vision trumps reality. So stop harking on it's failed 476 times before. It doesn't matter. They have a vision.
