Darwinian approach to saving the NHS maybe? Sick and elderly all die off waiting for their lorry loads of meds to get through the ports.
And don't even start on the radio-isotopes!

But
Airlines have to apply for overfly permits and the countries are able to set the prices for these.

Under the Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation all contracting states permit overflight by other states, but for most national aviation authorities, prior approval is required in the form of an overflight permit.

The charges normally payable would be the Route Navigation Facility Charges or RNFC for overflights

The procedure for issuance of these permits also varies from country to country.

As I already posted for overflying the EU and/or landing in Switzerland the UK will need to have a safety authorisation issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 452/2014.

In the case of flights between Switzerland and non EU countries I already posted the link. Applications for permits must be submitted not later than thirty days before the initial flight.
Be careful, aviation is complex. Chicago indeed says that, but the overfly permits you refer to are implicitly granted recipically by the IASTA signed the same day. Route navigation charges are something different and by convention must be related to the cost of providing the service.

Airlines file their biannuel schedules with national air control organisations and eurocontrol through the IATA scheduling processes.

Easyjet is slowly re-registering their fleet to the Austrian registry, BA is Spanish, Virgin is French/Dutch/US.

The problem you describe doesn’t actually exist. Where there will be problems is with flights between the EU and the UK where neither EU nor UK airlines will have revenue traffic rights (3rd and 4th freedom) without an agreement. But Switzerland isn’t in this category.

It should have been Cameron the one to negotiate the Brexit (yeah I know technically not possible)...for unknown reasons I feel sorry for Theresa May.

If she'd been forced into the position, I'd agree. As it was, she abandoned her principles in search of power. You reap what you sew.

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

That WTO option...

An interesting paragraph from the LeaveHQ of all places, on what WTO means.

Quote:
There are, in fact, 82 agreements between the EU and Australia, of which 18 are bilateral. There are 65 between the EU and China, of which 13 are bilateral. Between the EU and the United States, there are 135, of which 55 are bilateral. As regards trading agreements, not only is Global Britain incorrect in its assertions, its authors apparently don’t even read their own reports.

If it is all as automatic as you claim then why are UK and Switzerland writing a new agreement for flights between them?

Seems like a useful site regardless of their opinion on Brexit. Less because of what you quote but that the respective author appears to know at least a fair deal about the aspect at hand.

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

Just thinking back, Tories made the referendum an election promise, they got voted in. We had a referendum & voted the people voted to leave. We had another general election & the Tories won. Seems pretty clear there have been 3 opportunities to vote against BREXIT to date.

In all fairness, that's not completely true. How was it possible to vote against Brexit in the last election? It wasn't unless you lived in Scotland or wanted to waste a vote on an out of the running Lib Dem party. A general election is a general election, it isn't an approval or disapproval of a single policy within said election.

If it was really the wish of the majority to stay in the EU, the Lib Dem's would have won the election. You vote for the party whose pledges match what's important for you.

Labour did not have a referendum as a pledge so why did the Tories win with a huge majority?

Why do you think it was down to who was willing to step off the cliff and propose an EU referendum? UKIP have had this as their raison d'etre since they formed but still only managed to squeak just one measly seat.

Labour had Milliband and a dogged media campaign against him which was probably the more realistic reason for their defeat.

Perhaps they felt UKIP too right wing & preferred a moderate, slightly right of centre Conservative party who would honour their pledge. A better bet to get what they wanted.

I think I've heard that excuse before somewhere

UKIP won a load of votes, but it's only thanks to the UK's crappy joke of a "representative" democracy that they ended up with 1 measly seat. It's also the reason why Brexit is proving to be so difficult to get over the line as the majority of the public voted for Brexit but a significant majority of MPs are Remainers.
