      So the OP posts a picture of Elton John marrying a woman to show he's a hypocrite himself (I suppose at least, that is what she wanted to proof)
      OP just forgetting that it is because of mainly the religious brexit supporting political parties and politicians that gay people have stayed in the closet for a very long time

        Oh so bexiteers are all homophobic religious nuts as well? Any other unfounded accusations you want to level?

        Elton darling do explain how arranging a tour in France or Germany is any different to arranging a similar tour in Australia, Canada or USA? We aren't in the EU so the rules fall back to the same as other countries.

            The guy on the left is like looking at Elton, thinking, "I thought you was gay!"

              Arseholes are useful, not sure your opinions are!

                For someone like Elton John, there probably is little difference. But for the smaller bands the cost and red tape is well documented and could stop them from being able to tour outside the UK. Not just the bands by the way, it's the stage crew etc too - they would all need work permits for Europe where previously they didn't. These small bands and their crew would never have toured Oz so they would never have had to deal with the extra cost before.

                It's all well documented.

                Not just the music industry, sports people are having the same issue. There is a recent story re: cyclists that is interesting. Brexit really will reduce the options of young talent unless these Tories can sort out visas free travel for certain groups.

                Like I say, all well documented, but you may not find it in the pages of the Wail or Express

                  We ere promised Brexit would reduce red-tape, red-tape has increased.
                  We ere promised Brexit would give us all the benefits of EU membership but without payment.
                  We ere promised Brexit would let the Brits travel and work in the EU without restriction. No, we are a third county just like Russia or India.

                    Govt. had the option of an exemption to movement restrictions specifically for musicians and performers but turned it down.

                    UK refused deal on post-Brexit travel for musicians, says Barnier



                    The EU's draft legal text, published last March, included a clear exemption from potential new restrictions for several categories of workers including "sportspersons or artists performing an activity on an ad-hoc basis" as well as "journalists sent by the media of their country of residence."

                    The EU proposal went further, by offering the same exemption to "businesspersons, i.e. persons travelling for the purpose of business deliberations (without being employed in the country of the other Party)." Those exemptions were detailed on Page 354, in an annex to the draft legal text, and the EU also suggested creating a mechanism for modifying the exempted categories as needed.

                    EU officials have said British negotiators refused to consider a chapter on "mobility," citing the U.K. government's intention to end freedom of movement after Brexit. The draft chapter on "Mobility" proposed by the EU was absent from the final trade deal reached on Christmas Eve.
