The emergency Brexit powers for lorries has been made permanent as the government expects further and more serious disruption.

Whitewavemark2 Wed 11-Aug-21 07:09:56

Phone roaming charges have been reinstated.

One of the many lies told by brexiters who said that would never happen

My milk is not being delivered due to the shortage of drivers.

A double whammy for our economy : Brexit and Covid! Plus the lack of integrity on the part of our government.

Whitewavemark2 Wed 11-Aug-21 07:18:00

Took dog to see vet yesterday and had a chat.

Apparently there is a critical shortage of vets because of Brexit.

The “teething troubles” have turned into a permanent crises.

Nothing surprises me Whitewavemark2. I'm sure, in time, we'll become used to it and find a way through but it does feel a bit like biting one's own arm off (not that I've tried that!!).

I’ve tried to type something smart but you know - I don’t have decent words for this any more. It was and still is a criminal thing to do to our country.

One of the many lies told by the providing phone companies who said they wouldn’t do this, and who do not need to do this. This is about money grabbing, nothing else.

The failure to align with the EU over standards will allow cosmetic firms to once again use animals.

What new hell is this?

Funny my lovely Spanish dentist is still here, and the local Blue cross still has its Romanian vet. My brother has never had a problem at his dogs vet practice. Perhaps it’s just where you live, we welcome those EU citizens who have stayed,

No it is nationwide apparently

Prices are rising, second hand cars now more expensive. because there is a shortage of catalytic converters fir new cars. supermarket prices up and food and drink in pubs and restaurants have soared.
Just listening to special status food , apparently we are on our own in that too.
All I can say is Not in my Name!

If you live in Europe, there is no shortage of anything except stuff that has been affected by the weather (climate change😕)

Shelves and markets overflowing.

Many fields in U.K. left to rot because of picker shortage.

Cosmetic firms have always been allowed (especially the expensive skin care/make-up companies) to test on animals and if they export to China the products have to be tested on animals.

To check which products are not tested this way there is a free app bunnyfree .

Who said our standards would fall. Have you seen how pig farmers in Poland are allowed to get away treating their animals. In fact we banned animal testing in 1997, well before the EU in 200 something.

Perhaps you’d like a word with my vet?

Any comment on the hell that is being enforced on Kent?

Perhaps you'd like to explain why the phone companies can do this now, but couldn't before 1st Jan 2021, Lincslass?

I remember a brexiter saying that the acid test on Brexit was fishing.

Failed

Alegrias1 Wed 11-Aug-21 08:23:26

You can't distract from the fact that we are thinking of allowing animal testing for cosmetic products for the first time in more than quarter a century by saying "Oh, but look at Poland!". We led the EU in making animal testing illegal, now we're going backwards.

The arguments of the Brexiters/Tories/people with heads in the sand/whatever just get more bizarre by the day.

Never mind, I'm sure it will all iron itself out, as if by magic.

It's about making a profit, which is what businesses do, unless laws stop them, which being in the EU did.

Whitewavemark2 respectfully, perhaps you would like a word with my European Vet, Dentist and GP…

Whitewavemark2 Wed 11-Aug-21 08:24:41

Good news about Salt marsh lamb, which of course previously had EU status and was protected throughout Europe.

Now it is protected in the U.K.

That is all.
