I think people have missed the big picture issue with brexit, after all the negotiations we are still in the f@&;(“/ Eurovision Song Contest😭
So is Israel which is in Africa unless the geotechnic plates have had a radical shift !

Non EU* supplies...such as from China, or in my case some loads of frames and boxes from eastern Europe (outside EU) will not see a lot of changes...you had to front up the VAT and duty (if any) before Brexit so not a lot changes apart from delays in queues, and demurrage on transport...our rate quotes for any shipments needing to transit UK customs on a truck inbound have doubled.

Big difference is now that I have to front up the VAT on any imports I make from the EU at point of import into the UK......and fill in a LOT of paperwork (its for the UK btw...but they are blaming it on the EU...cut the politics please and sort out the self made crap!)..and lend the govt anything up to £15k for up to three months (although they already say they may defer repayments to carry out checks) kicking a hole in my cash flow I really dont need.

It’s a crossroads really but Europe doesn’t feature in neither ancient nor modern cartography!
For quite a long haven't heard for that term.. In fact Asia minor is modern day Turkey..

The thing I can't figure out though is if I wanted to import from the EU then everything coming into NI used to come through Heathrow; will that even be possible with a health cert or will they need transit paperwork as well? Maybe now that Belfast Airport is a point of Entry it might bypass Heathrow?

I've ordered queens before that were mistakenly sent to Dublin only to be flew back to Heathrow to come here which added a good week onto their journey.

What I was expecting but not what I wanted to hear.

Suspect that may be major issue unless Belfast has had the appropriate veterinary staff appointed. There are plenty points of entry....however only three (I think) can handle live animals....used to be only Heathrow and Coventry (for mailed items only) and I think Manchester is now on the list.

So livestock movement gets a whole load of new friction but poor quality food like chemically washed meats gets the nod.
