I've talked to a lad from ABS but as they're not sure whats what right now and are currently closed due to obvious reasons, I'm getting back in touch mid Feb.
I think making actual bait orders are the last thing on most French lake owners minds at the moment, spending out on bait orders is not a good idea when we have no idea when British customers can make it over. Ordering bait from the UK in smaller quantities for personal use won't be feasible going forward I shouldn't think, there'll be too much admin and costs per order involved to bother with anything but large orders.
UK companies are being advised to open hubs on the continent so that they can ship over in bulk, which minimises costs and administration significantly, and then dispatch to EU customers from inside the EU. It seems like this should be the model for UK bait companies or possibly a business opportunity for a middle man who's got the money to invest into something like this, they could also offer a selection of British foods including meat ect. If I was based near the ports and had money burning a hole in the bank it's what I'd be thinking of doing!

Immigration was a key reason due to seeing the changes in European cities in the last five years. Far right fascist groups are on the rise, whereas in Britain they are declining. Why is that? Why do people travel through safe countries to make a new life in the UK? Why were Europeans arriving in Britain for 24 hours on the 30th of December to claim settlement? Why did we give 96% of applicants settlement status? We had 40k asylum claimants last year. Why didn't they want to stay in France or whichever port they arrived from? Why do they pay thousands to traffickers and forgers to circumnavigate the visa system to get here? Why do we have an agreement with Greece to not send back asylum seekers to them? For a racist xenophobic country, we certainly do far more than most.

It's not all about immigration, but under freedom of movement Europe has (in my opinion) became a fractured project which has resulted in the deaths of thousands of people and made Britain a breeding ground for exploitation by way of prostitution, modern slavery etc etc. Why is it such a bad idea that people that people need to prove they are here for genuine reasons? Why is protecting 16 year old Bulgarian girls from prostitution such a bad idea? Why is preventing a Romanian being exploited for 3 an hour at a car wash such a bad thing?

This "stole my freedom of movement" thing makes me laugh though. Yes, you had freedom of movement. If you fancy going over to work in Spain, what stopped you? Oh, probably because their unemployment rate is treble that of the UK's. Sod all there for the kids neither, hence why they are here "serving our coffee in pret" as one pretentious tart once said on Question Time.

We are not perfect, but to many within Europe and the rest of the world, we are a Utopia, and I would not want to live anywhere else on the planet than Britain, this completely tiny insignificant island(!) that everyone loves, apart from Brits themselves.

If you use a kilo of boilies as a hammer to batter someone who voted leave, then have a word with yourself.

There were restrictions before, but as we were part of the EU the restrictions didn't apply to us bringing bait back from France etc.. They would have applied coming back from a non EU country though.

Yeah, right.....but the British Red tape introduced because of brexit that's strangling so many businesses is world beating at least.

I think Winkler means that we used to enforce the EU rule ourselves ourselves up until the start of this year.

Any longer? You mean before you couldn't take bait back to the UK? Don't think that's correct at all.

I believe the way it stands is yes, you can bring unused bait back as the UK has no such restrictions in place any longer.
