Most of the dealers in the UK don‘t send their goods to Germany. Even before Brexit.

Over the years, I have bought quite a few items online from the UK (knifes, optical products to name but a few) and never experienced any dealer or company not willing to send to Germany. Quite the opposite in fact, I was always very pleased with the entire transaction. All of that was before Brexit though.

FWIW in Australia GST (our version of VAT) is paid by the purchaser when the goods arrive.

Same here if you buy something from a non EU country (Switzerland for example). You are notified by the customs authority that goods have arrived and that they may be collected once VAT and import duties (if applicable) have been paid.

Anyone who was trading with or taking goods in or out of the EU before the UK membership, knew exactly what was going to happen but the lying brexiteer politicians just swept it under the carpet, as if it did not matter. Even the fishermen, who were supposed to be the main beneficiaries of Brexit are up in arms because they have to obtain vet certificates and food safety certificates for each separate shipment, which take longer to obtain than the shelf life of the fish. It would appear the only thing you can rely on politicians of any nationality or hue to do, is to FUBAR.

We have sovereignty - which I can eat and breathe, keeps me warm at night and makes me more attractive to the opposite sex. And I can spell it.

What about your nice blue passports?

I've got a nice blue passport (with the corner clipped) - from around 1971....

Ah yes - so has Patricia. Still, with the present-day situation, she might apply for a new one to be able to visit the UK through the fast passport control lane.

Tonight, to forget about covid, brexit etc, we have reaffirmed the immemorial custom of the English, which is to pinch good ideas from everyone else: haggis, neeps and tatties, and a glass (or 2, or 3, or...) of single malt. Here's to you, Rabbie.

I seem to be the only one in our family who doesn't qualify for both a UK and EU-country passport - through birth in Ireland, Irish parentage, marrying a furriner etc

Entirely agree with the sentiments. We've already eaten though,  so it will just have to be more malt to compensate.

So have I. I could still use the same photo too 😊

My wife’s mother had two Irish parents, so I think that she qualifies for an Irish passport. 
 

She could sail through EU fast lanes, but would have to wait for me while I queue for three hours to go through the “others” lane. Doesn’t seem much point.
