EU strategy to destroy the Chequers ‘agreement’...

HaHa. I suggest you go back to Rotherhithe's post number 13980 on 7th February which was the first "on subject" post since 16th January - a three week gap.

It reads "Afraid the sad consequences are going to be with us for ever"

That is just an example and it may not be you 58, but it is always a remainer that restarts the debate by presenting (at best) their prediction or (at worst) bullshit, as fact. All we do is point that out in response, and say why.

As Shotshy rightly points out, this transition period should be the time when problems occur but very few have, and there have even been some unexpected positives like the local sales of fish direct to the customer, cutting out wholesalers who have previously spirited stocks straight to Europe.
Yawn. Couldn't be bothered to get past the first line. You and Shotshy are obsessed.

The reason that I put- your lot- Armageddon is because that is precisely what your lot were predicting.
Going all the way back to pre referendum days, those opposed to leaving the Eu have predicted nothing but doom and gloom for this country.
It’s an inconvenient truth but the truth nonetheless.
Even our old resident expert WayneKerr took great pleasure in stating that we would be on par with Somalia.

It would be gracious if hard core remainers (not you 58) could no just come clean and publicly admit that they were wrong, pretty much about everything to do with Brexit.
From the result to the outcome.
Who on this board was "hard line" and "wrong" compared to how "wrong" Leavers have been?

Rhetorical question. Don't bother answering.

More importantly, how is it in the EU's interest to try and starve and bankrupt Northern Irelands businesses ?
Are the directives politically motivated or is there a serious concern about a plant entering NI with UK dirt on it ?

Still obsessed. Ooh, nasty EU sticking by the rules that we voted to be free of. This is what we voted for, so no problem.

But why ?
What is in it for them ?
There does not have to be anything. They are all about delays. Their inflexible bible of rules is sacrosanct and just applies across the board. The vaccine thing took them an age to actually look at, upon which they took a practical view as it finally dawned on them after 3 months that it would benefit them. The Astra Zeneca over 65s farce was just the cherry on the top of their natural paralysis.

In the end, that impracticability will create as many pains in the arse for exporters based in their own member countries as it does for any businesses in this country, particularly when our rules diverge.

We can be more business user-friendly, starting with assisting Northern Ireland supermarkets.

EU continue to show how utterly perverse they are. France, Germany and others slag off Astra Zeneca vaccine in an attempt to discredit a success story to their own advantage. The European public take this on board and start refusing AZ. EU uptake of vaccine embarrassingly slow and suddenly they've got an AZ vaccine lake that no one wants. Italy blocks AZ shipment to Australia. No one wants AZ in EU, but hey let's fuck the Aussies to get back at AZ. The bones of the EU laid bare.
