Re: Ha

"You seem pretty alone on that one. Even with the currency drop yes it will due to the protectionist tariffs no longer applying."

Which protectionist tariffs would those be? You mean the ones protecting former commonwealth and French colonies from the US Banana Megacorps which are on a path to 0% and currently stand at 1p per banana?

You really don't have the first clue, like many people you take a headline maximum tariff and then apply at will without understanding any of the underlying trade deals. Take the great coffee tariff myth in which the EU impoverishes Africa, except it doesn't because its completely false.

Food will not get cheaper, its already got more expensive thanks to weak sterling and intermittent supply, adding in WTO tariff schedules isn't going to make it cheaper even if we go with the Minford fantasy and drop all tariff barriers, unless you plan to ignore PSP rules and throw food safety out of the window.

Re: Ha

Food won't get cheaper.

Most of our food imports from outside the EU are covered by EBA and GSP/GSP+ to protect the emerging economies of poorer nations.

Lopping 1p off the cost of bananas from US megacorps wont save you much either.

UK has rejected over 1,000 skilled IT bod visa applications this year

nsld

Re: @AC Use local

The Tier 2 system ios a dogs breakfast.

Having run a scheme for an employer its not as simple as importing cheap labour.

The paperwork is onerous, the minimum salary is £30,000 and your job adverts have to pass the relevent labour market tests and approvals before you can sponsor a visa for someone to work for you.

The cost of administering the scheme and passing the home office inspections (which apply to all your employees records, not just the ones with visa's) is significant as well, think of it as 'right to work +++'

We only had 2 or 3 people on visas but the cost increase for the business was about £5,000 per visa per year to meet all the complaince regulations, legal costs etc.

Whilst some companies will abuse the system its actually not that easy to do primarily becuase the home office is so incompetent.

The actual reality, with apparent record levels of employment in the UK and a shortage of skills is that we just binned off 6000 tax payers who have no recourse to public funds and also have to pay an NHS premium along with the knock on effects to the businesses who need the staff just to appease the Gammon faced kippers.

Post Brexit adequacy decision?

As the government keep harping on about a 'deep and special' relationship with the EU27 and in particular over data sharing for businesses after we lob ourselves off the cliff you would think they would factor that into the legislation they are drafting.

Regaining sovereignty is going to look a bit weak when they have to bin the parts for political processing without consent, or denying rights regarding data relating to immigration decisions or dubious retention/sharing practices when the EU tells them to for an adequacy decision.

As for the planned implementation of Customs Union New Technology (or as its nicknamed 'Farage' ) on the Irish border, the requirement for an adequacy decision is significant.

Re: Where are the Brexit fans? @Dave15

Just on this:

" the French use only French vehicles "

I spend quite a bit of time in France in the mountains and I had no idea that the Subaru's driven by the plod in the Alps are French, or the Toyota 4WD's used by the lift companies are French, Or the Piste bashers from Germany etc etc etc.

A significant amount of UK lamb production goes to Europe, we flog boatloads of shellfish, I could go on.

And this gem:

"they are going to continue to export to us and charge us for the joy but stop us participating in any rule making"

This is completely wrong, as a third country we set our own standards and rules on whats acceptable in our sovereign market after Brexit, but here is the issue, unless we are going to RAISE standards above those from the EU27 then the producers in the EU won't face challenges to export to us.

However, the reality is that the divergence wanted by Mogg and Redwood and the rest of the ERG mob is to lower standards so that the emerging market producers they are heavily invested in can take advantage of the plan from Minford and economists 4 leave to lower inward tariffs/quotas to 0%. Effectively making the UK a dumping ground and wiping out manufacturing and agriculture.

The EU rules are irrelevent, the standards they follow will be higher and I doubt even the most ardent eurosceptic is going to tell an EU producer to make crappier stuff for the UK!

And the piece d' resistance:

"we would be better off completely closing our borders to ALL imports and saying stuff it to the rest of the world (just check our trade deficit)"

Yeah, who needs gas, oil, cement, medicines etc. etc. ad infinitum.............

Re: Where are the Brexit fans?

"As a country we are relying less and less on EU imports. The amount we import from the EU is falling each year. We import a lot of our fresh fruit from Africa and south America, yet we are not allowed to make trade deals with countries outside the EU."

No wonder you posted this anonymously because its total rubbish.

We have over 700 trade deals with countries outside the EU as a result of being part of that bloc. What trade deals are we currently missing?

Reality is that three trade areas set the global market standards, the US, China and the EU. Once you are outside those you have no power, influence or say and you are dependent on co-operative support at the WTO if something doesn't work for you.

As for this:

"for example, the police should not be driving around in cars imported from Korea when we make cars in this country."

All those foreign owned car makers building stuff from imported parts, once rules of origin become an issue for export you are going to be left with Caterham and Ariel Motors for your Brexit approved plod mobiles, as long as they don't stick the Honda engines in them!

The primary blocker to a good deal is the red lines that May has decided on.

They knew

When they introduced this it would fall at the first hurdle if challenged under a variety of laws but it gave them a good run of your local civil servants looking at your data to find out if the bloke down the road likes dwarf porn.

The funny part is that Brexit won't change this, even if the headbangers like Rees Mogg and Redwood demand it as it would prevent an adequacy decision under GDPR meaning a whole host of other data processing, storage and transfer issues for the UK.

So with Brexit we will lose our seat on the A29WP and any influence on how data protection law in our largest neighbouring market moves forward and we will have to comply fully to allow for trade to occur.

Either that or we join Kim Jong Un and become as ronery as the Norks.......

Re: One of these days...

"Come Brexit we shall need to produce more food inland anyway

Why? We can just buy it from developing nations currently shat upon by the EU's "circled wagons" approach to free trade that puts significant duties on those agricultural imports to benefit (mainly) French farmers."

We already do and much of it is duty or tariff free under the 'anything but arms' scheme.

As for trading bloc protection its always made me laugh that so many brexit advocates in politics are in the pay of US sugar producer Tate & Lyle and seem to think the destruction of British Sugar and UK Beet farmers is a good thing to benefit a US company and Caribean farmers!

Then we get onto how you transport your veg from far away lands to ensure its still edible and the cost of the food miles involved.

The Minford fantasy of free trade and zero import tariffs for all will destroy UK manufacturing and farming and leave us dependent on foreign powers for our food and other criticial supplies. Not good from a jobs perspective, or food security or anything really.

UK.gov: Snoop laws not 'significant' obstacle to EU data protection talks

nsld

Already happening

Will be no shortage of DC space in the UK in the coming years as anyone with half a brain has already started to move data relating to EU subjects into the mainland.

What many people miss is that simply storing it outside the UK isn't enough, without an adequacy decision it won't be lawful for someone sitting in the UK to 'process' EU citizens data so the jobs will also move.

From a risk perspective as current ICO rules allow for data transfers its easier to stick UK data subjects data in the EU and process it there than keep it here.

One bonus will be that it makes it a lot harder for Kim Jong Rudd and the rest of the Nork wannabees to hoover up that info.

Re: Race to the bottom

Re: Logging the lot

An APS is pretty much any data storage system in use as the whole point of them is to automate manual tasks (think emailing a receipt at the end of a transaction for example)

You will have to log every interaction with the data to meet this as its currently written which will mean you will end up with more data in logs than in the actual database. GDPR focuses on consent changes and adequate tracking of how consent is obtained and removed so it makes sense to log those.

One way of increasing server sales and boosting the economy it seems!

Re: There 'May' come a time

@codejunky

You really don't understand how any of this works.

Take the ECJ, if they tell the EU27 that something is not compliant or doesn't meet standards/GDPR et al (the list is endless) then thats game over for whatever that sector is involved in.

Hence why the moves are more than brass plate on the door. They are also moving data, services and in some cases entire teams into the EU27 just to be ready for GDPR requirements alone.

We haven't touched on Airlines either, Easyjet blinked first, BA will follow but has the advantage that it can leverage services etc within IAG its parent, Ryanair has already taken steps, all of which will add economic value in other countries and remove it from the UK.

Re: There 'May' come a time

@codejunky

Meeting your obligations to withdraw is just that, meeting the obligation which includes a fiscal one.

The trade agreement can only happen after the withdrawl is agreed for the simple reason that the trade deal cannot be put in place until we actually leave and have third country status. Thats why the stages are Withdrawl, define trading arrangement, sign deal on the day of leaving (if one is done of course)

As to the import at lower or zero tariffs argument (the Minford fantasy) , fine if you are purely a consumer economy but even the economic sage himself says that approach will completely destroy manufacturing in the UK. It will also hammer our exporters, end result will not be pretty.

The financial sector will be really hit hard if by March 2019 we don't have adequacy to handle the data of EU citizens or a deal on passporting, hence all the major financial institutions making contingency arrangements in the EU27 for that eventuality, just look at the doubling in commercial rents in Dublin since the vote, they are loving it.

As for Euro clearing, some of it already takes place in the US, they wont say no to more, plus your comment about reserve currency status is rubbish. The dollar is a reserve currency and almost all of its clearing is in New York so moving Euro Clearing more heavily into Europe won't change the reserve status of a currency.

Automative will be interesting, we don't have the supply chain in the UK to replace the multiple component moves that make up modern car manufacturing. End result if we do become a third country with no deal is a significant impact on the major manufacturers, all of which are fully or partially European owned. Of course the government has given a comfort letter to the Franco-Japanese owned Nissan and will probably have to do the same to BMW Mini, Tata Land Rover, Honda, Peugot (now owners of Vauxhall) etc. You or I won't get a comfort letter telling us the UK taxpayer will make up the difference, we will be the ones paying it. But even with those kind of subsidies/guarantees etc outside of the luxury producers you will see a big contraction, its already happened with investment plummeting since 2015 when the referendum was announced.

The real irony I have saved until last, now we are leaving we won't have a seat at the table and as a third country we will have to adhere to ECJ decisions and jump through all those hoops just to trade with the largest market on our doorstep. Its worth remembering the impact that the ECJ ruling in Schrems v. Facebook referred by Ireland had, even the land of the Trump has to bend to the ECJ if it wants to trade with one of the other big three.

Re: There 'May' come a time

@codejunky

Article 50 isnt a long document, it is about the withdrawl of a member from the EU which is why the EU published its position document openly with the withdrawl element to be dealt with first.

Thats not an obstacle, thats the approach layed down in the article to be followed. Davis was, as usual, just full of bluster and bravado.

Euro clearing takes place in many places, not just the UK, we happen to handle about 70% of it, Paris does about 11% and the rest is spread around. It represents a clear opportunity to move a significant amount away from London and, like the efforts to get the EU agencies business the EU countries are not going to let that prize go, nor are the Americans.

On the food and farming front its not just about the price to the consumer but also about tariffs and quota's under WTO rules. The 40% tariff on lamb for example is not going to be a good day out for the UK sheep farming industry, and thats just one example.

Like the UKIP's supporting the Caribbean Sugar Cane producers and US multi national cane processors UK sugar beet farmers are going to find out that life gets very hard without the protection of the tradeing block even with a weak currency to aid exports.

I am all for freedom and democracy, this was a binary vote so leaving the EU and joining EEA/EFTA meets that binary choice. I would also argue that your extension of that binary choice to be much more is a real example of someone trying to usurp democracy.

Re: There 'May' come a time

The EU are not putting obstacles in the way, remember the battle of the summer over parallel negotiations?

That lasted 4 minutes before Davis capitulated.

The EU27 have a job to do, they don't need to put any obstacles in the way and have been absolutely transparent in the position papers without press embargoes or press briefings.

The consensus in the EU27 is one of ambivelance, the EU is not going to collapse as a result of Britain leaving, in fact many of the countries in the EU27 actually want a hard Brexit as they stand to gain considerably from the transfer of assetts, businesses and economic activity. Taking farming, nothing we grow in the UK can't be grown in Northern Europe and they have lots of space to take over the production of arable and veg to replace what comes from the UK. Incidently, about 80% of all pea and pea protien (ready meals) consumer in the UK is grown in Northern Europe, what do you think thats going to do to your food costs.

A no deal departure would mean that Euro clearing goes to the EU27 from London, following the regulatory agencies like Medicine, which incidently brings huge secondary spend with hotel rooms, transport, visitor leisure etc. little wonder the EU cities are lining up to bid for those agencies.

The government has already floated the idea of EFTA court as the arbitrator, thats to soften headbangers like you up to the reality that we will join EEA/EFTA and it will be business as usual.

What that means in reality is a higher membership bill, significantly reduced grants, more paperwork and no say on the shape of the union. The positives are that the likes of Farage, Hannan and the rest of the MEP troughers are out of a job and business can continue as usual.

Yet strangely as I sit in Dublin Airport after another day consulting with a SaaS provider the general consensus is that the UK won't get an adequacy decision and any serious business is already a long way down the road of moving its data into an EU 27 country.

It will be far easier to store UK data in the EU and watch as the UK government does nothing than it would be to keep it in the UK and find you can't do business when the ECJ does a Schrems and the UK as a third country finds itself out on its arse in a data processing wilderness.
