    He is just displaying ignorance. Apart from red diesel, nothing on that list is anything to do with the EU, but individual states. The nature of contraband is unlikely to change for many years to come.

    That is one export that should be encouraged.

    I don't think that anything is going to change. There is a remain majority in the House of Commons so they will fudge it. We will leave in name only but it will be business as usual. May will use Labour to overrule the leave group in her own party to push through an "agreement". the result is nothing will change.

    I also wonder about visiting other countries around the world. I was looking at being sent to South America for a short work trip, and their list of countries from which visas are not needed includes "EU nationals". Is everywhere going to instantly update their lists to add "UK" as a separate entity?

    I assume that's rhetorical, Pete. If not, the answer is the usual: NOHAFC.

    Can someone explain why Visas won't be needed. Come March we leave the EU, therefore the EU nationals bit won't apply. So surely we would need a Visa to enter the EU? As someone said. Money talks, you just have to spend it on a visa.

    As usual, there's been zero reliable information on this. The only information is if there's a no deal, because if there is a deal, no-one knows what it is. It seems if you have less than 6 months on your passport you may have a problem. Other than that this document is supposed to explain it, but a good part of it is devoted to the new blue passport we're going to have to have.

    I have no recollection of any meaningful difficulty travelling to Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands etc prior to UK joining EU? Why should there be in 2019- other than as an act of petty vindictiveness?

    Brittany Ferries bookings for next summer are down 5% compared with this time last year. A spokesman said it is due to Brexit uncertainties; will visas be needed, will the EHIC card still be valid, wiil UK driving licences be accepted, etc?

    Typical scaremongering by business spivs, of course. Anyone knows you only have to flourish your new blue passport at the damned garlic-eaters and all difficulties will disappear.
