This is Brexit. It won't get much better. We're stuck with it.

The cost will be staggering. All this extra admin, red tape and bureaucracy will strangle our economy.
Grow up, any admin changes will become insignificant costs once they are used to it and systems have evolved. Most countries aren't inside the EU you know. Removed

"Most countries aren't inside the EU you know."

No, but most countries haven't chosen to leave a free-trade agreement with their closest trading partners. That's something only people with no business-sense would choose to do.

Brexit was supposed to do away with "EU bureaucracy" and red tape.

Another Brexiter lie.

It's just made it more difficult and costly for UK businesses to trade.

But the new border checks are making a huge positive difference in preventing the theft and illegal export of stolen goods from UK. Particularly large criminal gangs in Europe from stealing cars and motorcycles etc. It is it very difficult to steal from the UK for sale in EU and beyond. You won’t read this on the BBC as it doesn’t fit the agenda.

More utter BS from Chloe.

Let’s face it. All exporters were warned that they need to prepare. 12 months notice. We were always leaving the customs union. But exporters failed to listen and failed to prepare.

We used to say. “ Fail to prepare then prepare to fail”. Failure in the referendum and failure in business but it’s all ex remain voters who are failing.

Brexit - the world's first and only free-trade deal which erects barriers rather than diminishing them!...if you're outside the EU (or any other) single market, then it's blindingly obvious there will be - have to be - barriers. Half the 25 pieces of documentation required to sell, say, fish to France are demanded by the UK, not the EU - see government's own guidelines.

Way to go Boris - all we need is something else to screw the country after your pathetic handling of the COVID situation. Brexit was always doomed to failure and it has not taken long to see how Government has completely misunderstood the process. Simple rule is never let Government get involved in business - they don't have the brains.
NO sane businessperson would pay $28m for a middleman on PPE.

Businesses are having to cancel exports as they cannot find anyone to complete their papers. Have had conversations with hauliers in the EU and here who are now very reluctant to send vehicles from or to the UK. Those that do send will triple their rates to make it worthwhile due to bureacracy the huge delays in getting their papers.

The implications for this country are very real & very serious.

"new laws of "our own" that will replace those facilitating the SM."

It is worse than that. The UK is rolling over EU trade deals with Japan etc.

Those trade deals will be based upon EU regulations. If the UK departs from EU regulations, thus incurring tariffs from the EU, all other nations will follow suit.

I'll wager neither Johnson nor ERG have thought of this yet.

Sorry to burst your bubble. I know the EU budget figures are difficult, might be because they’re never audited independently, but you obviously don’t understand. The amounts on your hyperlink, you should scrutinise them more, are total amounts paid in. When you look at what each country gets back then Germany is a net contributor of just over 40% of contributions.
It's important to understand that the EU leaders haven't even started yet. They will put the jackboot in at every opportunity, because they are sore losers. The French are easy to deal with as they are fundamentally gay. The Germans are the issue. We may have to get tough with them. Removed
