Brexiteer tweets "this isnt the Brexit i voted for"!!

Fucking hilarious! :pmsl:



James O'Brien came to his rescue though;

"It's too late to change our minds about Brexit. It's absolutely finished, done with, over. Reality is now beginning to bite, whether you're a former employee of Norton Motorcycles, whether you're working for Honda in Swindon or whether you're standing in queues that you didn't have to stand in last year.

"It's all coming home to roost. So blame the people who sold it, not the people that bought it.

"In order to make sure that we don't get fooled again, you've got to go after the people who fooled you last time, not the people who got fooled."

What brexit did they vote for (incidentally this is a non-Schengen line, it exists for people who don't live in a zone created for central Europe in order to make getting to work easier)?

We're in transition - nothing has changed yet.

The delay was probably due to staff training, that's the good news.

The staff were probably training for how Brexit will actually affect UK citizens travelling in Europe; that's the bad news.

I have an Irish Passport. For me that's the fucking great news.

Talking of staff training i read this post on DS earlier. Brits are going to find this cuts both ways - and they won't like it one bit. Probably respond indignantly, "i'm British, get out of my way"!

Having come via the Eurostar last week I was surprised finding UK immigration behaving like US immigration towards anyone with a non-British passport.

What is the purpose of your visit?
How long are you planning to stay?
Where are you staying?
How will you pay for accommodation and other things during your stay?
Which country did you travel from today?

Sounds like bollox to me.
Last week I flew into Stansted from Spain and everything was just like normal.
There is just the same process for all EU citizens as before.

Nothing is supposed to change until December 31st 2020
And that will all depend on the post-Brexit agreement we have with the EU.

It's starting to happen now, that's the idea of drills and staff training, stuff that will be implemented between now and the New Year. That's what the transition period is all about.

This is the official advice:

Travel after 31 January 2020

Following ratification of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK departed the EU on 31 January 2020.
We are now in a transition period (also known as the ‘implementation period’) lasting until at least 31 December 2020.
During this time, everything will remain the same and you can continue to travel without any changes.

A transition period is where transitions happen.

Staff will have to be trained in new processes and procedures and it would be foolish to just 'flip the switch' on December 31 next year and expect everything to work straight away.

There will be delays to people coming in, discouraging particularly agricultural workers who will have the option to travel anywhere in the EU, and delays for people going out. It is Brexit and it is what you voted for.

Bollox
Why would the staff need training?
Worst case after Jan 1st 2021 is that UK passport holders go through a different queue with the Australians, Japanese, Americans etc
There are no new processes.
They already exist.

This is all fake news.
My guess is that the idiot who wrote the original story didn’t know that he still needed to go through the EU passport holders queue.
