Big news for us!

Switzerland has just announced that in the event of a no deal Brexit that they'll move to carry on exactly as before with a deal that could be signed theoretically they day after the UK leaves.

So much for the lip wobblers on here!

Federal Council lays the foundation for future economic and trade relations with the United Kingdom
So we are back to pre-bilateral days in terms of UK trade and still in the dark in terms of what is important to many here their residence status...

After BREXIT in stead of simply exporting goods into the EU for onward shipping to the UK, we will now have to export out of the EU and into the UK and go through the delays on the Dover route.. so back to the unpredictable delivery lines of the past. The only consolation is that at least our competitors in the EU will be in the same situation as us at least.

You know why this is referred to by the Swiss as a ‘mind the gap’ solution? It assumes that the UK can get its act together at the WTO, before the transition period allowed under WTO terms (a24 I think) expires.
