Amid Jacob Rees Smug, sorry, Mogg telling us the rotting fish waiting to be exported was at least "happy British fish", it appears some of our recent residents were not so happy. The UK governments Economic Statistics Centre of Excellence has produced figures saying the population was 1.3m less (at September 2020) with London losing around 700000 people. This was the largest reduction in population since WW2 so it looks like our problem won't be keeping people out, more like persuading them (or begging them unsure.gif ) to stay.

Whilst I'm on about the impact of Brexit, I read a story of one chap's experience of how it is now. He runs a business in Britain, manufacturing specialist sports equipment for Olympic athletes with a turnover of about 7m a year. Until the 31st December last year he sent his goods, with an average price of 200, to EU customers with frictionless trade. Since the 1st January each parcel now requires;

A courier admin fee to cover form filling of 4,50 per parcel
A deferment fee to cover import charges of 5 per parcel
A disbursement fee levied at either 14 or a percentage of the goods value (whichever is higher) plus VAT which is different in each country to cover the costs of processing and examining the parcel.

His cost will increase by around 160000 a year.

He cannot see a way of continuing to export goods in an economic manner and fears his workforce of 50 will have to be reduced considerably in consequence. This was a guy who was part of the DTI's taskforce in the run up to the "deal" being hatched. His opinion is that many other small businesses will be in the same position as his.

I suppose we'll have our GG seps on here soon calling the blockade of Downing Street by Scottish seafood companies trucks as just being Shelfish.....Sorry.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-91...ing-Street.html

And yet again, another staunch Tory Sep Ted Brocklebank who had this to say in 2017

"Ted Brocklebank, a Tory MSP from 2003 to 2011 and former fisheries spokesman told the Telegraph the next move could be to slap down Ms Sturgeon’s hopes for a second referendum because of her stance on fisheries.

He wrote: “Indeed “hard Brexit” is seen by many as the potential saviour of an industry that has been too long in the doldrums.

“Orders for new boats are up and former crewmen are clamouring to get back to sea.

“Far from revivifying the independence dream there is now the very real prospect that Britain’s withdrawal from the EU, and consequently from the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), could actually trigger its demise.”

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/841750/Ni...-European-Union

Clearly poor Ted needs a new crystal ball.

But in true Lying Tory Scumbag fashion he totally contradicts his 2017 prediction in today's Daily Heil.

"Last week's scenes of fresh fish being dumped or given away because of customs restrictions at Channel ports were as disgraceful as they were predictable. A Conservative government had again failed an iconic British industry"

There we are, Ted had actually saw this "predictable" outcome.

Never trust a Tory. yes.gif

A good example of the stupidity of Brexshit Separatist logic, of lack thereof.

Thought you might like n update on my post regarding EU export costs. I'm sure you will all be gratified to learn that the DTI has advised companies how to avoid the charges and several are already pursuing their solution. That solution is opening up a base in Europe (the Netherlands appears a popular choice) which means employing staff there and reducing staff numbers in the UK. You couldn't make it up huh.gif

Well when Johnson, Gove, Mogg, Farage and the rest of the seps told the gullible that Brexshit will be, "great for business" they didn't realise they mean great for Dutch business. wink.gif

Though all the clues were there, they just chose to ignore them in favour of some UJ and Blue (EU made) passport waving. yes.gif

Interesting to read the first page of this thread from almost exactly a year ago, Danny's telling overseas readers to ignore "Jagz and others" for scaremongering and Kem turns Brexit criticism into "SNP bad".

No change there then laugh.gif
