KateEMcCann 🇪🇺💙🇪🇺💙🇪🇺💙🇪🇺💙🇪🇺✌ KateEMcCann This is nonsense, just to make EU look extremist. All exporters in Britain have to down is slap a sticker on pallet saying, FOR USE IN N.I. ONLY Problem solved, British knew of this pre existing rule as the voted in European Parliament for it!

KateEMcCann Tell the EU to Foxtrot Oscar there has got to be more than enough PONI to get by.

UK asks EU for more time to resolve Brexit sausage rowRequest over Northern Ireland comes amid moves to guarantee voting rights for EU citizens in UK local elections What has the UK done with the time that was granted in the past grace-period I suspect it has done precious little. An extension of the grace-period is therefor undeserved. The row is about chilled meat, not sausages per se. Very tabloidese of The Guardian to suggest otherwise. Another reason I no longer pay a monthly contribution to The Guardian. In a pathetic fit of democracy denial they've pushed themselves down to the gutter, it often seems. Ah the oven ready brexit deal where 99% of the ingredients were missing!

This Govt didn’t care about animal welfare when doing the deal. Tagging the RSPCA in this? Brave.
