Leaving aside the spelling booboo in the headline, here we have your Road Haulage Association saying that the NI-GB supply chain is at risk of collapse, while your Minister for the Cabinet Office says that the movement of goods between NI and GB will get worse before it gets better.

Out of interest, do all the big supermarkets in NI have warehouses in the RoI   ?   Would it seem feasible (or likely)  that they'll start supplying their NI warehouses from RoI warehouses ?   

 

If the logistics of shipping from UK to NI remain problematic  for another few weeks, you'd think supermarkets  wouldn't put up with it and  find other solutions.

So all companies from the EU exporting to the UK have 6 months to get everything bedded in and UK companies don't. 

I matters not what way you voted, that's a fecking incredible piece of stupidity from Boris' negotiating team.

The fine detail of our “cake and eat it” Brexit Deal continues to seep out. Given that Scotland lands 60% of the UKs fish, this table is damning. Taking Back Control?

Now that its all done and dusted we need more negative brexit stories imo 

 

But it clearly isn't done and dusted!

 

Do you have a positive story you'd like to add?

We have no idea what we have done! 31st December cheese and ham sandwich no problem. 1st January big problem. 
In one respect I feel sorry for the voters who voted leave they were lied to by the likes of Gove, Johnson the ERG and Farage. 
I do suspect that there will be a movement to rejoin once the reality begins to bight home that they were lied to big time.

More Brexit dividend 🙂
Turns out the Devil is in the detail rather than the side of a bus ...

"SKY has stripped all UK customers of their ability to stream or download shows from UK terrestrial channels or on-demand boxsets when abroad in the European Union. The feature - a longtime staple of the hugely-popular Sky Go app - is due to the change in relationship between the UK and the EU, following the implementation of the Brexit referendum on January 1, 2021."

I don't share your optimism that Brexit supporters will have a change of heart.

People don't like admitting they were wrong or hoodwinked to themselves, let alone others. So as it becomes increasingly apparent that there are no unicorns frolicking on the sunlit uplands, they will suffer in silence with their cognitive dissonance rather than admit they made an almighty blunder.

And the racists who supported it won't care about bad outcomes, they'll just be happy free movement has ended.

No idea. Surely he’ll have to take a COVID test at least to avoid having to self isolate at Turnberry though. Maybe depends wether he’s officially president at that time or not.

While I fully appreciate, it's very early days. The new rules will take time to bed in, and we're very much in a lull in volume of freight moving between the UK and EU, so far it's not really been the predicted meltdown, has it? Sex arses and British expats no longer getting Sky TV aside.

The general pattern is the UK wanted to 'get Brexit done'. They were offered a lot of transitional options.

 

The main limit where some arrangements are being brought in  is where IT systems aren't ready.

Fresh fish prices in the Scottish fish markets have dropped by up to 80%.

The extra bureaucracy and red tape is meaning delays in getting catches to their final destination, so it's not fresh any more.

Buyers are abandoning the UK market and are buying French or Dutch instead.

 

If these "teething troubles" are sorted and we can get back to reducing travel times to a day or so, there is no guarantee the custom will come back if they're pleased with the French and Dutch produce.

I have little sympathy. The majority in the fishing industry voted to Leave and Remoaners were labelled scaremongers for pointing out the consequences of their folly. Those in the fishing industry that voted to Remain have my sympathy (yes there WERE some).

Tbf nobody knew. I was pretty pro brexit in the beginning when it all started. I ended up not voting as towards the end I was seriously swaying towards remain the more and more I found out. The EU was far from perfect but leaving and with what looks like a very poor deal looks insanity. It does need time to calm down but what a ***** it seems they’ve made of it. 
An unprepared shambles.

Sorry, I missed this.  Tesco, Lidl and Aldi do, and there are a couple of Irish chains with warehouses in the Republic.  Asda, Sainsbury's, Co-Op and M&S (AFAIK) don't.

Brexit red tape is likely to increase food supply chain costs, the Food and Drink Federation has warned.

 

Those costs will either be passed on to consumers or absorbed by retailers, the industry group said.

 

 

 

 

Hmmm

 

Wonder if the costs will be absorbed by the retailers?

Just referencing Johnson's famous quote that Brexit would let Britain have its cake and eat it, a claim he reiterated after the deal was agreed.

The fisherman says he didn't vote in the referendum.

The seafood industry is being described as the “canary in the coalmine”

I watched Cornwall : A Fishing Life last night. It was of particular interest to me as it focussed on Newlyn and I was born and brought up just a mile away. It covered the run up to Brexit 2018/19. Overwhelmingly the fishermen were in favour of Brexit despite making it clear that they had benefited greatly from the increased EU market for fish which used to be just used to bait crab pots. individual grants for various fishing boat equipment and a Regional development grant worth millions to redevelop and expand the port facilities. Some of the most prominent spokesmen for the fishing industry featured, lobbying parliament and media. As the prgramme finished well before the final deal (everyone who voted for Brexit knew what they were voting for surely), I thought I'd see what the reaction was. The spokesman featured on the programme was Paul Trebilcock. Here's an article from Cornwall Live.

 

The Cornish Fish Producers' Organisation CEO, Paul Trebilcock, said of the deal: “We’ve had our expectations continually raised by the Prime Minister, and MPs, for years now.

 

"Promises of full and absolute control of our waters and better fishing opportunities have been made time and time again only to be shattered at the final moment.

 

"For Government to say this is a good deal is hugely disappointing, it is certainly not the deal we were led to believe we would receive, and it has left Cornish fishermen feeling angry and insulted.”

Well, we DO have more control of our waters and an increased catch quota. Promise kept.

 

Nobody said anything about the extra red tape, delays in getting produce to market or our EU customers not buying all that extra fish.

The devil is in the details, darlings!

Boris can ***** about with the Royal Navy chasing French ships out of the English Channel all he likes, but is he going to sail into Boulogne harbour and force them to buy the UK fish at gunpoint too???

There will be an element of 'You can't bring your cheese & hm snadwich into our country' about it, no doubt.  The paperwork will be a bit more onerous I'm sure but in time will be just part of the process, and will be forgotten.  The tariffs and their effect on folks buying the fish in the EU will be market-driven.

Maybe we should be a bit more adventurous in the fish we eat? 

 

As an island nation we really hardly touch the produce from our waters.  As an aside I wonder what the SNP government have done with the £200million given to them by Westminster to ease financial pressures on business after Brexit.
