    There will be no hifi.

    Don't you watch the news?
    A no deal Brexit will bring 40 years of famine, plague, and pestilence, real biblical holocaust style, all that will be left is a Mad Max style wasteland inhabited by nothing but cockroaches.

    It must be true, the BBC said so and they're unbiased

    Yup. I think we should build a wall along the south coast and ask Trump to get the Mexicans to pay for it!

    It's people that were the problem, not stuff. Right to work, that sort of thing. No-one voted for Brexit because they wanted a clampdown on the charging of duty and VAT at Dover.

    That's a very good point, Martin.

    Sounds like it will all be fine then.

    I think the French will be awkward. Why shouldn’t they be?
    I am sure that they will push freight going to the U.K. through at the ports giving the U.K. the problem of letting it go through if they so wish. Freight coming into France is likely to be disrupted with the motorways leading to the ports effectively becoming car parks.

    two could play that game of course, depending if supplies can be sourced elsewhere.. the whole thing just becomes more childish by the day

    They are not the ones doing a Brexit.
    They love their processes and will be quite happy to work to rule and collect any customs duties from the associated imports if no agreement is struck. Why would you want to deliberately lose money?
