Right, so every the come to a U.K. person in rhe queue they are going to hang around for an extra 20 seconds... just plain nonsense....

You’ll be treated the same as every other third country nationals and that is inconvenient enough. If you arrive during peak time it will take longer, if you are behind someone who they decide to check up on it will take longer, if you are young or look like you’re poor it will take longer, if you look like you might work it will take longer... if you are middle aged and look well healed it should be quicker.
The 20 seconds is just an average. Arriving in Schengen the officer needs to find a space and then stamp. If there are multiple existing stamps these need to be checked to ensure permitted times will not been exceeded leading to additional questions. On departure the arrival stamp needs to be located in the passport and stamped out on the same or opposing page (which facilitates the arrival process). Some will be quick just 5 or 10 additional seconds per passenger. Some others, (frequent travelers) will take much longer.

Oh, British residents of CH will also have to present their permits on departure/arrival just like other third country nationals.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Form S1 only applies to retirees from UK who have NO Swiss pension or income, apart from UK Pensions. And 'they' do not pay your Health Insurance either. The reason I can't do any paid work in CH, and only offer my language teaching and translating services on 'exchange basis'.

I feel it highly unlikely anybody would check for a bit of translating work, as i said, nothing stopping you doing it in France while you're having a coffee or whatever

For anyone who missed this video on social media this week, this is the latest government advice for British nationals travelling in the EU for work.

The series of videos is horrifying. Gawd help anyone with a small business.

The best part is
"Completing a customs declaration is complicated.
[..]
will you have to train and hire new staff
do you have the skills to do this yourself
to do this yourself you need to buy specialist software"

As for price calculations, you'll have to guess what customs fees will amount to if you export. Tough luck if transport takes weeks or even months.
Oh and btw, you may need an export license.
Also, don't try to export unless you have all the necessary paperwork ready - as if people ever did.

I'm so relieved this is just project fear. It will all revert to being a walk in the park once the govt publishes its info.

Not enough for 6 words.

With a style, though, you know. That's what the English nail, every time.

That is the problem for the Leave campaign - no party has ever won a rematch in EU type referenda. Their entire strategy is now known and can be challenged.

This would also work well for Remain too. It's 45+mins long. Props to Tice for sticking the interview out. Many would have walked, which makes me wonder if he even realises what a prawn he made of himself? He's very good at distancing himself from the muck, but not that good since he's ended up in the clutches of Isabel Oakshott
