In October I placed an order for a Hay item from an online UK retailer, lead time quoted was 3 weeks. Just received an email to say it would be shipped week commencing 22nd February Laughing out loud due to "Brexit uncertainty and Covid-19" (verbatim).

Know a lad who works for FP. They are increasing their European warehouse capacity and reducing UK so likely less product here thanks to Brexit.

Proud Boys will probably offset that anyway.

what a fucking shitshow… the general (gullible) public were fucking lied to; sold this dreamland idea of opportunity and prosperity which would somehow come to fruition from telling our nearest neighbours to get fucked. fuck david cameron, boris, farage and rees-mogg. genuinely makes me seeth more than anything

i don't see how anyone can continue to support this idea. what good can actually come from it at this point? even the fishermen don't want to leave now

This, after 4 years we’re still hearing and talking about Brexit in terms of damage limitation. When are we going to see the benefits?

In fuk related news sounds like Bicester is screwed (sorry Carl) , think I read foreign tourists from non-EU unable to claim VAT back on goods unless they are posted home?

Meanwhile EU online shopping into UK may attract VAT and handling fees on items over £390 ? I guess they will need to wave a lot through but that's always a pain with US parcels.

Probably makes it harder for UK business to export to the EU as well.

Already seen a great EU based shop say they won't ship to the UK for now.

All for 0 tangible benefits.

Just twitter it, he's basically said this whole thing about him being able to veto is utter bollocks. Literally as trump is on stage begging him to do it.
