And it makes me very sad about how we have actually ended up in this situation..

I think, after reading through some comments, that there's a lack of appreciation of how far removed we have become from the EU and the larger single market it governs. It is now much easier to move goods between Turkey and the EU as they are members of the customs union.

Britain's choice to prioritise sovereignity over all else has severe repercussions, whatever you think of the EU or more importantly, the common market which preceded it, it has been of huge benefit to its members and the UK was one nation that did better out of it than most.

Taken from History.com's article on the European Common Market:

Britain and other European nations initially declined to join the "Common Market and established the weaker European Free Trade Association (EFTA) in 1960 as an alternative. By the early 1960s, however, the Common Market nations showed signs of significant economic growth, and Britain changed its mind. Because of its close ties to the United States, however, French President Charles de Gaulle twice vetoed British admission, and Britain did not join the EC until January 1973"

I'm confident that the UK would have prospered if the entire EEC had disbanded and we'd been on a level playing field with all other nations - we have a strong history as traders and innovators. But this new relationship places Britain at the periphery of our closest and most important market.

Just a point in support of my point on the reciprocal nature of rules. 30% of orders delivered from the UK to Europe are being refused by customers because of the duties and taxes added without notice prior to arrival. Some bigger UK companies considering destroying goods rather than face the costs of recovery.

One point that has little mention is the extra cost of selling bait in the EU now. With duty and admin costs it is possible that UK made bait could be priced out once it reaches the shelf. At the moment baits such as Nash and Mainline that can be found in many angling shops are anything up to 15 euro's per kilo and with the added costs after Brexit it will be interesting to see how prices pan out. I think the way forward for anglers visiting France will be to source bait either at the lake or from one of the many rolling companies already established in the EU. Obviously if border restrictions are eased it will be 'business as usual'. Time will tell.

It could just as easily happen that after borders open with tourists again anglers will be "smuggling" in bait and all related products for trade in the back of their van... I know we did it on some other border before 😂 if they cant search every car for drugs they for sure are not gonna stop every car for bait... For trade is different as will still have to go to custom&vet inspection etc... But once a shop has got one batch with papers adding additional supply from the back of the van is a piece of cake... Nothing new in any business there...

Why am I I've not criticised anyone I've not insulted anyone, I gave my opinion on an open forum abiding by the forum rules which is more than can be said for you, if you don't agree with me that's fine, give your argument but I don't see why you feel the need to personally attack me, but if thatswhat you have to do to make yourself feel better then carry on fella 👍🏻

You're a dick. This is on those who voted leave. So, thanks to those who did, everyone loses out.

Its quite interesting that a lot of comments on this thread mirror views Before and after we entered the common market! Im old enough to remember that taking foodstuffs abroad was also “banned” but it didnt stop me mum filling her suitcase with bacon and sausages every time we travelled!

Not to mention prices went up overnight when we joined.

It will all settle down. Folk will stash their boilies and the odd unlucky soul will get pulled over for a once over. Happened to us last year for a drugs swab of the car (glad i gave up the weed when I was 17)

Do we really think the french are going to fastidiously enforce the rules as currently interpreted?

Im more interested in the logistics of it all, presumably any french customs/border checks will remain on the UK eurotunnel side and they will operate a random check, if they are there and can be arsed!

Be interesting to see what happens in reality

it's probably peopl that voted remain moaning the most

Yeah, like all those fish exporters and that arse Roger Daltry that have been in the news recently.

Funny that now it's all going pear shaped people are now saying 'it's a long-term thing' ... in that case all the old folks should have asked the youngsters how to vote, seeing as they'll be dead by the time it pays off.

I seem to remember the leave lot listing a whole load of immediate advantages. No mention of 'long term' anything, while any suggestion of problems sending stuff abroad was 'project fear'.

Lol, the thing is it's probably peopl that voted remain moaning the most because its a result of something they didn't want, as a leave voter I'm willing to accept hardship and inconvenience for what I feel will be good for the country in the longterm, but it's just my opinion and I can see why people are against it and that's their opinion, what ever happens regarding food and bait it's nothing compared to the inconvenience caused by the Chinese it's just a temporary distraction 😂

No argument Chris, it is purely that when we are suffering from our own decision I find it irritating that so many people seem to think it is the French putting one over us !! You must excuse me mate, I am an old sod after all !! lol
