No more flights to Europe? UK issues dire Brexit aviation warnings

No more flights to Europe? UK issues dire Brexit aviation warnings

Keir Starmer received a prolonged standing ovation at the Labour Party conference on Tuesday after he said Brexit could still be stopped.

"UK shoppers, who have become accustomed to year-round availability of a wide range of safe, high-quality food and drink at all price points, will face a very rude awakening".

The Labour Party tests require the United Kingdom to have the "exact same" benefits that come from being a member of the single market and customs union; a "strong and collaborative" relationship with the EU post-Brexit; a Minister for the control of migration; national security protection; protecting rights; and delivering for all areas of the UK.

They warned that unless an emergency aviation deal is struck in the event off a no-deal Brexit, all flights will be grounded.

In an additional blow to air travellers, passengers flying long-haul with a stop off in an European Union airport may have to go through security screening again when changing flights, including having bags re-scanned. Owners will be required to prove that animals are vaccinated against rabies, and will need a health certificate for each pet.

The lack of an agreement could hamper airlines, stop the movement of goods to the world's biggest trading bloc and cause headaches for pet owners who want to take their dogs on holiday, documents showed.

The company has struck deals with various high-profile financial institutions, including Santander and American Express. It is usually not possible to buy alternative cryptocurrencies such as XRP directly using US dollars.

Party members will be asked to agree that "if we can not get a general election, Labour must support all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote". This may involve a small extra fee from the insurer.

Brexiteers accept there is likely to be some short-term economic pain but say the government is trying to scare voters about the impact of a no-deal Brexit.

Amid warnings that trucks could stack up on both sides of the English Channel in the confusion of a no deal, Britain said it would seek to strike bilateral agreements with European countries to ensure hauliers would retain access.

National Farmers Union President Minette Batters said: "These technical notices confirm in black and white what we already knew - a no deal scenario would be catastrophic for British agriculture".

The "no deal" papers warn explicitly that demand for the permits "will significantly exceed supply" and firms should prepare for getting fewer than they ask for.
