      it was actually meant as a joke but whoosh!

      sadly it seems Parliament is forbidding fair protest

      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...arliament.html

      Will Stop Brexit Man FINALLY be silenced? Pro-EU activist Steve Bray is barred from blasting loud music at Parliament under new law banning 'noisy protests'- but he REFUSES to stop
      • The failed Lib Dem parliamentary candidate accused police of harassment
      • Priti Patel's Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act came into force today
      • Bray told he could not conduct a 'noisy protest' within area outside Parliament
      "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

      I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

        Extreme left wing financial times with their remoaner fiction...

        The country’s current account deficit was calculated at 8.3 per cent of gross domestic product in the first quarter of 2022, a deterioration from an average of 2.6 per cent across all of 2021.

        It was the worst figure on record since quarterly balance of payments data was first published in 1955.

        The weak performance of UK exports and a surge in imports highlight the economic effects of Brexit.

          Some downsides: https://yorkshirebylines.co.uk/regul...nside-dossier/

          Personally, I've never heard of this one but made me laugh although I've had similar to this going from Germany into Switzerland some years ago:

          Lap tops. Travellers to the EU who carry a laptop for work purposes will require an ATA carnet to temporarily export their computer and avoid import charges according to advice from the government. A carnet from the London Chambers of Commerce costs £300 + VAT (members £180). To avoid this cost business travellers can, for some goods, use a ‘duplicate list‘ which is more complicated than exporting using an ATA Carnet and requires a list on company stationery plus a completed form C&E1246 with an EORI Number and a customs declaration

          or:

          Temporary imports: Spanish customs charged a holidaymaker 21% duty (£340) on the value of three e-bikes imported temporarily into Spain. Anyone taking reasonably high-value goods from the UK to the EU is required to declare them and pay any tariffs due. Payment can be avoided by paying for a customs carnet although this would have cost £300 plus VAT.
          Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

            How do they know if you're carrying the laptop for work purposes?

            I sometimes take my laptop on holiday with me.

              They look for the Fujitsu sticker with a bar code and asset number at the bottom right hand side of the lid.

                  It doesn't matter whether it is for work or not any goods above a certain value need to be declared. Germany allows the import of goods of up to EUR 700 without declaring. Anything above that should be declared. Every country has different rules for non-EU travellers.

                    If you remember back to one of the post vote threads, when someone posted a rant by Fish about small groups and solo artists no longer being able (financially) to do small EU tours due to having to use the CARNET system to move equipment between EU countries (if you are from the UK). This is exactly the same problem manifesting itself here. It's not laptops as the article suggests, it's anything of sufficient value, so camera gear, and if the receiving country wants to be arsey, expensive mobile phones. if you have to move between countries with any significant equipment, it's going to cost.

                    This was, of course, dismissed by the diptulips like vetran as being nonsense.

                      So the article being linked to is misleading in that it specified work laptops to the exclusion of other items that might be over the limit for a given country? There's a shocker.
