Already there, old bean!

And now there's talk of putting the lorry drivers in a hotel.

As long as the bill is sent to that spineless wonder Macron I don't give a fig!  I'm with @Chillidoggyand am now boycotting french products.

Thanks heaven for new world wines. :hrhr:

Ditto, albeit their cheese is disgusting, their cars are crap, their decent wine is overpriced and I like chianti anyway, So won’t be too difficult. 

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

I've actually found a nice Romanian Pinot Noir that slides down wonderfully well and a great Chilean Merlot.  No hardship here lol.  I also prefer Prosecco to Champagne. Going Frenchless is not going to be hard.

 How's a Romanian (EU) wine going to get here ? Or Italian Prosecco, or Spanish Riocha? I don't know, but someone here might - what are WTO tarrifs on this stuff? or is it just Olde English "Longbow" humour and waving 2 fingers ?

Great shots  - well worth the PPL equivalent 👍

🤔 If they lined up all the red lorries down the middle, then maybe the air-freighted goods would be able to land  - extra runway capacity ?

BTW (Be lovely to see an illuminated "night-shot" if such a thing existed ...)

Between 8 and 12 pence per bottle depending on ABV of the wine. Hardly the doomsday scenario portrayed by the press

Being realistic, we all know that that 8 or 12 pence per bottle will be £2 or£3 per bottle extra coming out of your wallet

How so? It's a competitive market so if the price rises significantly above the tariff, that is profiteering and will just make the non EU wines look better value. So who wins?

Anyway looks like we have a deal. The early indications are it's not horrendous. So around Easter looking forward to winding up all those remoaner doomsayers about how the world hasn't stopped.

Assuming of course (and to ensure we remain on topic) that the COVID vaccine does not cause us to mutate into gormless brain dead cannibal Zombies as per so many Hollywood/Streaming productions. The good news is Brad Pitt still lives and will save us.

I see that “gob almighty” Anneliese Dodds has already told us how bad the deal is because it is too “thin” and will be detrimental to our GDP.

How come she’s seen the full text then before anyone else? Or is she the last of the Corbynites on the Labour front bench who just has to criticise everything Tory, as she has done so with the furlough payments etc.

This Labour Party have really learned the art of growing feet since the number of times they shoot themselves in the foot is beyond belief. Too thick to realise the long term damage that has been done to their Party over the past 10 years.

Been to aldi this morning to pick up some odds and sods for xmas. Mainly snacks and stuff as the missus likes all to eat healthy - and me and the kids love naughty stuff.

According to the bbc I was heading to shelves much like those found in third world countries. However imagine my surprise when I came out with a turkey ( We’ve got beef and lamb already so weren’t bothered ) fillet steaks, salad, booze, nuts etc etc - there was nothing I couldn’t buy. Even bog roll was available. 
 
No long queues to get in - car park 1/3 full at most.

I’m sure however the shelves will be empty in late jan 🤭🤪🙄

Someond should stuff a sweaty sock in her mouth. Then at least something of substance could come out of it.
