And with tongue planted firmly in cheek..another thing about Brexit it was 43° here in Spain yesterday they didn't tell us about that before brexit. Didn't see that on the side of a bus. Forums here still have people who live in Spain justifying why they support leave. Doh. Ah well, in words of dad's army Fraser. "We're doomed"
The people who voted leave and are still resident in Spain should have there heads checked.

Strict security checks, including identify checks have been in place for all air travel since 9/11
I am all in favour of the security checks on passports and in the airports before you step on the plane and return home as it is in everyone`s interest to ensure safe travel.

The stamps and dates in the passports are checked to ensure you have not exceeded the time spent in EU countries under the current regulations, ie; 90 days maximum in a180 day period as I believe it is.

My son is currently working in Spain and comes home on a regular basis and gets his passport stamps scrutinised everytime he goes through passport control, both ways.

Wouldn't it be nice to roll the clocks back now we know what a s##t idea it really was.
I am sure all the remainers would love that to happen unfortunately for them the majority of the voters voted leave that is not going to change however much they keep moaning about it.

Maybe the ones that have changed their mind are moaning because of the lies they were told?

Personally, had I voted “Leave” because of what the likes of Boris had told me, I would be livid!

Landed in La Rochelle. Rocked up to the passport control and after a cursory glance, let through.

As non EU, are the checks for UK citizens more robust?

as an aside, La Rochelle is beautiful. There's a nice Belgian bar on the Dock which I will check out tomorrow

La Rochelle is a superb place, but it’s also the only town I have seen a CS Gas spray used!

Sat in a bar, two men start fighting, one straddles the other and starts punching him like there’s no tomorrow!

Barmaid wanders to front of the bar before anyone can move and sprays something into the face of man doing the punching.

That is the only time I’ve ever seen someone do a backward somersault through a swing door, from a kneeling position!

As the man finished outside on the pavement, the barmaid just locked the door, tended the man who was being battered and the rest of us resumed drinking!

After asking the barmaid what she had used, I bought my wife one of the cylinders “Just in case!”; and so far she hasn’t used it on me or anyone else!
athumb..

Impressive result though!

Surely if 'E-passports' and their scanners were used properly there should be no need for people to look at an ink stamp?
I find it hard to believe that they are not linked to a database.

Ok just back from Europe with the wee dug. we left in June
Differences
1. need a animal welfare certificate 10 days before you travel (£100 - £150) as opposed to the Pet Passport.
2. need it to be in the language where you enter Europe (In my case Dutch)
3. Checks at Amsterdam took 1 to 2 hours longer
4. To re enter UK need a worming tablet 5 days before re entry (the same)
5. Needs to be done by a vet and new form stamped.

This is where the problem lies. The form (12 pages) was written in English and Dutch. We were in Italy.
The Vet had never seen the form before and spoke a little English. Took 45 min and even then we weren't sure it was stamped in the right place. Bricking it when we got to passport control in Amsterdam.

As the Vet said, "why did your country not keep the pet passport scheme?"
The new system is a total pain in the ti**

Just another thing they never thought about when delivering "The Great Deal". Numpties.

The only way round the red tape is to get your pet registered with a vet in NI or Ireland.

I wonder what you need to do to get dual nationality apart for vote for independence.
