Fascinating in a car crash kind of way.
    No there's not. There's a constant stream of these type of headlines that peiple are quick to jump on. "EU to ban UK flights into Europe" is going to get a bigger reaction than "UK output up 0.3% for June" isn't it now.

    Like it or not, Remoaners need to understand that the UK is a powerhouse that, for the forseeable future until EM/BRICS etc. sort their acts out (don't hold your breath) will be punching above it's weight on the world stage, whilst the EU experiment lanquishes and dies a slow death (starting with the word "reform" being banded about no doubt).

    Well, if you'd be paying attention to this thread, you'd know that it's at the Swiss end. You know - flying from a non-Schengen EU country into a Schengen non-EU country.

    And as for your question. Don't worry, If I get a Swiss passport, I'll be keeping my British passport - both countries allow dual nationality (in common with most developed countries), so it isn't a problem. But I appreciate your concern.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    A day in the life of a typical Remoaner:

    1) Travel to work
    2) Take a tulip (optional)
    3) Get the first coffee of the day

    6) Do some work (optional)
    7) While !CoP Repeat from step 4
    8) Travel home, promising to yourself to definitely, definitely start researching leaving this terrible country for ever, once you've saved up enough money.

    I'd say it was getting tedious, but it has been since 2016-06-24.

    You need to have a chat with the Brexit minister :

    https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...xit-go-435185/

    The UK's secretary of state for exiting the European Union has indicated that the country may not have access to EU-US open skies after its departure from the bloc.

    Apologies for not reading all your posts. I find the counting thread far more interesting. Which is true for most remaoner posts and the tedious unconstructive whining.

    Inneresting you think the UK will remain developed. I thought the remoaner creed stated that the UK would be a wasteland by 2018.

    Does the Minister honestly think, even in his tiny little Brexiteer brain for a duration of up to 600ms, that the EU would be so stupid as to prevent UK (you know, that country with the third largest equity market on the planet, as big as France and Germany put together*) aircraft entering EU airspace?

    Powerhouse for what?

    Manufacturing? None left

    Banking? Moving to Dublin

    Lets face it, it’s taxis and takeaway delivery, that’s what we excel at, and that’s only because immigrants do it and they’ll be gone once we regain control of our borders and put the Great back into Britain..

    Just like The Children Of Men. That’s a book BTW, ever read one?

    So how to you account for the thread being started by a pro-brexiter?
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Because throughout history, it's been demonstrated that the strategy of a country cutting their nose off to spite their face, is a well proven and effective one, isn't it.

    Money makes the world go round, e.g., remember when Spain tried to introduce huge delays between on the Gibraltar border to p1ss the UK off? How long did that last?
