As would be their supply of thorium should those people developing generation capabilities that are based on thorium ever manage to complete their development work.


Plus they are sort of semi-joined at the hip with the Swedes - although the Swedes buy many fewer Teslas and have a less extensive Supercharger network.


The Norway Option could have been a solution at some points in the past few years but it seemed people were not interested perhaps because they did not really know how to look at it.


There again if the Norwegian social Model might end up being the result of the package it would mane the State has extreme control (with a leftist perspective) over how much people are both paid and taxed and just about all that they do. All of which seems to result in things being very expensive for some reason.


Right now I think Germany, and possibly France, might be concerned about losing their volume of engineering products sales into the UK. Especially high value items like cars and plant.


How long that position lasts is anyone's guess. Ultimately It may not even be a real concern

So, going back to the big issue of customs clearance in and out of the UK if it’s ‘leave without a deal’, I thought I’d be clever this trip and use the ‘Duplicate list’ procedure for temporary export.

The forms need a customs stamp, but guess what- there’s no manned customs office at Portsmouth docks......

I repost this from Martin Short who I often see as he has a home near us in Spain.

“To appreciate quite how draconian the behaviour of the Spanish state has been, conduct this little thought experiment. Imagine for a moment that it was Nicola Sturgeon of the SNP who had been forced to flee Scotland after running an impromptu poll. Try to contemplate a scenario under which Ian Blackford MP had been sentenced to time in Wormwood Scrubs”....I know..... it’s sounds great right? But seriously, no, it’s unimaginable in our country, but while the EU screams comment on our politics, describing a special place in hell for brexiteers, they say NOTHING on the locking up of these Catalonians........ independence is a dirty word in Brussels. Apologies for a political post but this situation, in Europe , is simply unbelievable.
The EU's spineless leaders, always vocal about Brexit, have gone strangely silent on Catalonia

Who he?

However, let's wait until next year and see if the SNP try to get the House of Commons agree to let Scotland have yet another referendum (after the once in a lifetime one) on independence. And when permission is denied, whether they try to run one anyway.

Going back to customs documentation, for the first time ever yesterday at Caen passport control I was asked for my CMR note. As said before, this is only a consignment note that proves you have a contract to move the goods, so not a customs doc. No idea what is going on, but as I had gone the trouble to fill in CMRs and could produce them, he was happy......

I wonder if you were asked because they knew you had filled in the forms?

He may have been asking if they gave you the extra stiffness you had been seeking. Assuming, not unnaturally, that such would be at least a secondary purpose.

Little blue job, made in Cork, Ireland and probably subject to UK import duty after 31 October. Enough to give one a 'limp'.

Also, I believe, made in Sandwich, Kent, so no import duty.

There might be Bob.

Obviously when I wrote the comment I was thinking of chassis stiffness but I did wonder if people here might "misconstrue".


The rather mild responses so far are, frankly, a little disappointing in some ways though of course encouraging in others. It is, after all, important to keep up social standards and it seems we have nothing to worry about there.
