Big problems for much of business, perhaps especially services (lucky we don't do much of those) but also anything with complex supply chains or which imports stuff from ROW to export to EU markets.Trade agreements and customs are separate matters.
A Free Trade Agreement is free of tariffs (at least of those goods that have been covered in the agreement). Customs on the other hand protects the market the trade agreement covers.
I think as time goes on NTBs, such as ROO, Accumulation, Quotas etc will impact more than many think.

You are right, flouncing can sometimes be funny, it's just a bit sad that basically through nit picking and acting as a gang, you managed to upset a good member of our community. You all understood the post, just acted all high and mighty "I'm better than thou, because I know my geographical terms". Most times a flouncer will receive my waving emoji, however here I see a bunch of smug old men patting themselves on the back for upseting a good member of the forum.C'mon Bob, you have to admit there's nothing like a good flounce from a proper flouncer.
Very nicely summarised. I suppose that with anti-London sentiment in much of the rest of the UK we can eventually look to a removal of their red tape and regulations, and each of our counties can be free to choose on which side of the road they'll drive, and which pin gets wired to what on a mains plugThe European Union front loaded bureaucracy by harmonising regulations (EU red tape).....which then removed bureaucracy from businesses who could trade freely.
Brexit has achieved the strange thing of theoretically removing the red tape of harmonised regulations and standards, but does so by imposing massive red tape onto business.
Fairly certain Redwood was one of the "bar stewards" (sic) as referred to by John Major. Says all that needs to be said really.But we knew what we voted for......
Yeah right. Man who voted for internal UK border complains about internal UK border...... Better not mention fish to him.....
