Another delay in phytosanitary checks. Brexit does seem rather asymmetric.
Apparently the only benefit will be reduced costs ti the consumer, and less protection for domestic producer and possibility of swine fever.
Brexit the gift horse that keeps on giving. :banghead:

Nothing most likely much the same as what’s going out that the EU insist on having checks on, we seem determined to disadvantage UK producers by putting up with endless EU hurdles whilst encouraging EU imports without the same added burden, talk about taking back control what a load of horse sh!t the Tories talk up!

I appreciate you are being ironic H, but it was explained in 2016 in the information provided to the electorate when they decided whether to vote leave or remain. Does seem odd that folk didn't seem to appreciate the finer points of the single market. Hey ho, we move on. Make ones bed and lie in it, and all that. Cheers

Up to the 31st January 2020, nobody needed borders / checks. After 31st January 2020, all of a sudden, we must have borders/ checks. Hmmmmm.
Let's imagine there was one main corridor into Ukraine for freight / food etc. And the Russkies introduced this childish crap to slow freight..........
EU no better than Putin IMO.

Because goods can transit the EU without inspection if the destination is not in the EU.
What don't you understand?
Do you want meat from Turkey , Eastern Med. and North Africa coming into the UK with no inspection?
