That many of them will go to Ireland
And Ireland is in the EU - so the same rules will apply there as in Belgium, France etc.
Even if the Irish still have the green stuff .
How Scotland will manage if it becomes independant I can't imagine.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Do british sailors who go abroad just up sticks overnight and go without any forethought?
Knowing that you are going to cross channel etc withen a matter of weeks, months etc would you not have plenty time to either use up your stock of red and fill up with white from your local petrol station or is that too much ****ing work for some of you.
Folk moaned when they tried to ban the red now you are moaning when we are getting to keep it.
Also, it is not that easy to get rid of the red. If you have a full tank of the stuff, you are going to have to run it close to empty at least twice and refill before you are down to safe levels - not easy to do in short notice for many boats.
Just to throw some real facts into the frenzy.
as of today's pricing, white marine diesel with all duty and VAT applied is 1p/litre less than red diesel if 100% duty is declared. So the main difference is the relief on 40% duty (IF repeat IF it that is what you declare), which equates to 20p per litre at least until the budget in March.
ie net difference is 19p per litre.
