    If we do a deal we will probably not have to have visas but would still be restricted to 90 days in any 180.
    Of course we may yet do a deal where we stay in the single market and accept freedom of movement and so we would have no problems. Europeans would of course likewise have freedom of movement to the UK - fingers crossed but unlikely

    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.
    I am not sure I'd describe Brittany Ferries as spivs, the service they offer is excellent.

    Someone already did. (Although there was no definitive "won't", just a likelihood. The citizens of over one third of all non-EU countries on the planet do not currently need a visa to visit the EU.)

    The world is a different place to what it was then and no amount of wishing on a star is going to change that.

    Sorry, my translator, Mrs Sandy is not here at the moment, what is that in English?

    To be honest all I can say in French is, Je suis écossais, je ne parle pas français. It has served me well over the last 30 years travelling in France.

    It can be funny translating the other way. Mrs Sandy was in the chemist shop trying to sort out some medicine for conjunctivitis, she turned to me and said they want to put salt water in my eye, I suggested to her it was saline solution.

    Why should we 'have' to do any of this? You were sold a pup with Brexit.

    getting a visa for the USA is that easy, I am not sure about a 30 min wait when we arrive in Roscoff on the ferry. It normally takes us, as foot passengers, about 30 mins to check into France currently we can go through two passport controls, only one is marked for non-EU citizens. I'll let you know next time we pop over.
