I'm considering asking my friends in the USA to send me some. And a WW2 M-29 Weasel amphibious tracked vehicle for the snow and floods.

One shipping line recently offered freight rates of $12,050 for a 40ft container from China to Southampton, but charged just $8,450 for the same container to travel from China to Rotterdam, Hamburg, or Antwerp.

Boris Johnson: "****** business"

 

Move to EU to avoid Brexit costs, firms told

In an extraordinary twist to the Brexit saga, UK small businesses are being told by advisers working for the Department for International Trade (DIT) that the best way to circumvent border issues and VAT problems that have been piling up since 1 January is to register new firms within the EU single market, from where they can distribute their goods far more freely.

Moss said it was now clear that Brexit was not about winning back control from the EU but investing in it to survive.

Rachel Reeves, said: “Once again we see this government’s sheer incompetence and lack of planning holding British businesses back and slowing our economic recovery.

“They’ve got to get a grip on this now and stop leaving our businesses out in the cold.”

Relocate to EU to dodge Brexit bureaucracy

British businesses struggling to export to the continent are being encouraged by government trade advisers to set up separate companies inside the European Union to get around extra Brexit charges, paperwork and taxes.

Geoffrey Betts said: “When the government said it had secured free trade, it was obvious it was nothing of the sort.” New charges on moving goods, VAT problems and more bureaucracy had created an “administrative nightmare”, he added.

Relocating operations into the EU will mean British companies can avoid cross-border delays and costs on every consignment they send – and avoid VAT problems plaguing post-Brexit trade.

This is a CoVid thing , not a Brexit thing. WFH means more time to boil an egg.

Everything has been a disaster.

Im chatting to Spanish, German and Italian relations.

The disgust and upset is very very real and extreme.

 

 

Well ditto - Spanish and French in my case.

The most interesting however are English friends (who left to live abroad before 2016) who can't understand what is going on here. 

Its almost as if they are plugged into a different reality looking in on us in wonder. The interesting discussion I had a few weeks ago was around the idea that the governments are 'setting the tone' and that the internet isn't quite as powerful as is sometimes made out.

Which is funny because it seems as if our government appears to be waiting to hear what the internet says and then making decisions, by which time its of course too late...

According to the link you gave it is very much just Covid.  It does not mention Brexit as a reason.  There is apparently a shortage of containers because of unprecedented world demand.

When things settle down we will not simply be trying to replicate things as they are, like on-shipping from Rotterdam.  As is well known this practice inflates the apparent UK-EU trade volume.

When we joined the EU, a favourite saying was, "Liverpool found itself on the wrong side of the country".  This would also apply to all west facing ports.  Perhaps now things will shift back somewhat as we trade more with RoW.

The Brexit costs are mounting.

‘Brexodus’ of jobs from City of London to continue

Mairead McGuinness has launched a plan to strengthen EU’s financial system post-Brexit. “There has been this discussion around movement of employment and investment. Already some has happened and it is likely that more will follow,” Ms McGuinness said. “While that is happening, it isn’t our objective that we’re trying to take some of the one million people’s jobs that are in the UK. But we are trying to take account of Brexit,” she added.

Ms McGuinness, who is in charge of financial markets and services, said that the commission was still lacking clarity on the British government’s intentions regarding regulation, and on how much it will seek to diverge from its past alignment with the bloc.

The EC has not yet made a series of equivalence decisions on British financial services, which would ease access for UK banks and financial firms to the single market by effectively deeming British regulations to be on par with those of the EU.

The EU will be introducing a financial transaction tax as part of its funding of its Covid recovery fund.  Just imagine if we were still in the EU, which country do you think would've been stung the most by this?

Also, the EU decided to punish Switzerland by removing its "equivalence" status.  Turned out this had no discernible effect on Swiss share trade volumes.

Are you clairvoyant? 

Are you coming from the future?

Is Turkey a member of the EU in the future?

The financial transaction tax is a firm plan. 

https://ec.europa.eu/info/strategy/recovery-plan-europe_en

June 2024, the Commission will propose new sources of revenue, such as:

piled coins a Financial Transaction Tax
investment icon a financial contribution linked to the corporate sector
board a new common corporate tax base

Is this what anyone voted for?

Your diagram needs another area, TCA, or "Trade and Cooperation Agreement".

They'll all be after that now, Norway for one.

Propose. In three years. TTIP was proposed. Didn't happen.

I don't know, it seems you struggle with understanding English. Let's compare your initial statement with the ongoing working document you have kindly provided.

So let me explain the difference for you:

The first one (your quote) is definitive, the second one is hypothetical. Here you are drawing conclusion from something that did not happen, nor has it even started to be debated. You (nor I) know which way the wind will be blowing on this one. What you did is more than taking a shortcut, you are disingenuous.

It has to find money for its recovery fund somehow.  If no transaction tax, some other tax will have to replace it in the plan.

In any case the plan seems well advanced.  It's a firm plan, nothing like Turkey joining.

You thought I'd made the whole thing up, or got it off a conspiracy site, and then it turns out there is a definite EU plan for it.  You are upset because that screws with your assumption of remainer intelligence and brexiter stupidity.  It's as simple as that.

That recovery fund is happening.  They have to raise money for it somehow.
