It seems the EU have missed the point of why we left them as it appears, they want us to leave but stay exactly the same as if we hadn’t left and yet I thought we had left because we were fed up with following their rules and laws.
Things don’t seem to be going well with the negotiations and it looks like we will be leaving with no deal which is a shame as I believe we buy a considerable amount of stuff from the EU and having no deal will be a bit of an inconvenience for both sides but I imagine we will still purchase just as much stuff from them and no doubt they will be pleased to sell it to us.
The problem seems to be transporting it from one country to the other and I hear that many companies are looking into the possibility of flying the products over, I’m also led to believe that we currently have a problem at the ports due to the importation of so much PPE due to the Covid-19 situation, which goes to the front of the queue causing a backlog.
Worry not for as usual history will guide us towards a solution and for those of you interested in World War Two, I ask you to cast your mind back to the 1948 and the Berlin Airlift.
After the war the Soviets had blocked the Western Allies access to Berlin which caused us to be somewhat inventive in the solution to the problem and from June 1948 until May 1949 we flew in everything that Berlin required, from fuel to food and even dropping sweets to the children below as the planes came in to land.
So, fear not brave people of the United Kingdom, for surely we shall be as inventive as in 1949 now the boot is on the other foot.
Just a little note to any pilots who may be reading this, should you be passing over our house, my wife and I are rather partial to Cadburys Whole Nut Chocolate.
