    Default Reducing the red tape

    Good thing we’re leaving the bureaucratic red tape behind.

    Green cards, International Driving Permits, Customs forms for sending a parcel.

    If Spuddy can cope with double incontinence and two shifts a week at the NAAFI, he can cope with this.

    It's not a big deal. You just write the contents and value on a label that you stick to the parcel.
    Duct tape holds the universe together. In quantum chromodynamics it's known as the strong force. You get it in different colours, but metallic grey is best.

    Of course it’s only a small thing. Just one more small thing, that adds up to increased red tape and costs. Small thing here, small thing there, it all adds up.

    What was it that the Leave campaign promised?

    Break free from EU red tape straitjacket, Brexit campaign urges Prime Minister - Leave Means Leave

    As for the value, again only a small thing to write it on the customs form. What’s it used for? Small increments in additional costs for the recipient.

    That might be a big deal to many Brexiters, you only have to look at the level of comprehension on here plus many of them probably haven't used a pen in years....
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
