Seems sensible and I voted remain. This is where we are now so I'd rather we crack on and fix what we can, and not in a Tory way, just get some sensible people workig on it and try to find solutions rather than burn it all down.
I'd prefer single market access etc but really can't spend all the time arguing about it. Get better people in, sort what we can and come back to the whole SM thing later.

I'm actually a little bit concerned that this may be the start of the groundwork for the Tories to begin campaigning to rejoin the single market/customs union on the run up to the next election. Right now (according to the polls) they have nothing to lose by doing so, but possibly quite a lot to gain - especially as Labour are trying to embrace Brexit to win back the red wall.
Had to laugh, then cry, when I read this. Fuck me, at last, the penny/cent has dropped!
It’s astonishing, really. Like I keep saying to my old man, if you believe in brexit, conservatism and all that bullshit, you should be shouting louder than me. You should be demanding better and require at least a basic level of competence from people implementing this stuff.
The right wing press should hound these people to their graves rather than printing ‘this ladies not for u-turning’ nonsense.
Apologies if this is the wrong place for such an enquiry, but what's the post-Brexit situation when it comes to importing goods from EU countries?
It used to be that if you were buying something from, say, the US or Canada, and the declared value of the item(s) was less than £15.00, no additional taxes or other fees would be payable. (This may still be the case - the cost of shipping CDs from the States to the UK has become batshit crazy in recent years, so I almost never do it nowadays.)
Does this £15.00 declared value threshold now apply to items imported from the EU as well, or is there an altogether different setup in play?
Thanks in advance.
I don't mean to sound cold, or bitter, or cruel... but I am, so that's how it comes out.

Mr Wonderstuff: Chopper gang reporting in together ZX-Spectrum 48k. Always wanted a Grifter though.

EMarkM: I had friends with Grifters and Commandos. I had a Rancho (I think: I can't find it online this morning!), though, which I suspect was a cheaper version. I never had a Chopper, but did have the Budgie

zagibu: But coming back to the PE teacher topic...my PE teacher kept a pair of extra gay short shorts from the 70ies in his bag for people who "forgot" their sports bag at home. I had to wear them many times.

zagibu: Well I can't deny that a small, somewhat female part in me enjoyed flaunting my thin, pale, hairless teenage legs in their full glorious length in front of the whole crew. Thankfully it was before the camera phone era.
