In an extraordinary twist to the Brexit saga, UK small businesses are being told by advisers working for the Department for International Trade (DIT) that the best way to circumvent border issues and VAT problems that have been piling up since 1 January is to register new firms within the EU single market, from where they can distribute their goods far more freely.
I'm perplexed that any company large enough to be able to set up an EU-based offshoot hadn't already realised at some point over the past two years that they needed to do so.

Perplexed but not surprised, I assume :wink:

I think the current news is mainly from businesses not large enough to have spare cash to do lots of research and planning and who therefore relied on the lies, I'm sorry, the considered advice from the government that it would be frictionless.

What would be surprising is honesty from politicians.

Ex-minister Johnny Mercer says ‘almost nobody’ tells truth in Johnson’s government | Politics | The Guardian

Quote:
The former veterans’ minister Johnny Mercer has launched an extraordinary attack on Boris Johnson’s government, describing it as a “cesspit” and “the most distrustful, awful environment I’ve ever worked in”.
Which seems entirely fair, probably a bit restrained.

This is all to distract attention from what's really going on, of course.

That's what the "failure to protect our veterans" noise is about.

The other things are trying to divert from why Bozo is having cosy texts with Dyson and other business traitors - by asking who leaked the texts instead of whether they should have been texted in the first place.

Ive always had an unsubstantiated hate for Dyson products. I wonder, do they sell their products in the UK by flogging how much of a British genius Dyson is, like they do in the US?

I think you may be mistaken though - it's not a unsubstantiated hate.
