"Good question.

You know that will be replicated more on the other side though, right?"

Red tape on either side is bad for business. Brexit has hugely increased - not decreased - red tape when the brexiters claimed that it would reduce it.

The most important point is that we have made it much harder to trade with 27 countries on our doorstep. They only have more difficult trading with 1 country. Who is hurt more?

If you actually watched the videos from that twitter feed, you would see the guy admit that the extra paperwork that France et al have to complete means that they will buy their eels from another EU country and not from him. They don't really lose anything, his business is finished.

I don't need to watch them, I realise that is the impact on this particular trader and am not disputing that.

We didn't Brexit enough!

One piece of EU legislation that the UK has kept regards VAT on retail imports. It's now incumbent on foreign retailers to collect UK VAT in their country and pay it to the UK, the same goes for imports into the EU. That's okay for the EU, which can act as a closed shop of 27 countries trading without this by themselves, but the UK now stands alone.

I bet that Boris did this because he didn't recruit the 50,000 customs staff needed to deal with this situation.

The end result... e-tailers all around the world and in Europe are now refusing to sell to the UK instead of signing up to the UK's new tax collecting lark as of 11pm tonight. UK retailers are stopping exporting to Europe for the same reason. Even Amazon is cancelling pre-orders between the UK and Europe for the same reason.

Guess whose tax revenue from mail order retail imports and exports is going to vanish?

In the next few months we will be hearing from brexiters about how this is a bad deal when all the dire consequences start to emerge, and it'll be all the EU's fault, just like the withdrawal agreement that they all happily signed up to without reading.

The EU have given themselves several weeks to paw over the trade deal and only then will individual EU countries fully ratify it. They can still cancel it and each country has a veto. UK parliament gave themselves 5 hours and then signed it without reading it.

How dare Johnnie Foreigner confiscate our British Sandwiches by applying the existing EU rules on phytosanitary security to third countries in fluent English. They are just punishing us! I didn't fight in a war for this!

All good, if they are the rules then we need to follow them.

Exactly. It is an entirely foreseeable consequence of leaving the EU. Other countries - US, Australia, NZ, etc., have similar (and often much tougher) phytosanitary rules for third countries.

Predictably this is reported as the EU being petty or punishing us for daring to leaveĀ and then turns into the twisted logic that is another good reason why we left: "the disadvantages of leaving justify the leaving" as someone put it.

We could also apply the same rules to them coming to UK, but we have chosen to have 'light touch' border controls until July to ease the chaos at the ports.
