    Sand Blasting And 2pack

    Once again I have to say what a splendid job Athy does (no relation, never met) hopefully this will not get the thread locked as implying criticism of other mods as happened last time. (Of course if the cap fits)

    Resign Threshold - TSB

    Havent been able to use internet banking for a month now which is a bit of a nuisance as we were abroad. Phoned helpdesk which advised delay 30 minutes plus due to "high call volume" and hung up. Upon our return went to the local branch were they were sympathetic and helpful as always. They were blocked from resetting my password so they rang the IT desk which replied after over an hour of holding on and told them to ring a different number. So it seems a long way from being fixed. Still musn't grumble some folks seem even worse off. https://www.mirror.co.uk/money/tsb-hell-victim-reveals-how-12591083

    Looking Forward to a Trump Visit .

    My recollection is that there was a lot of discontent about the ban and there was a poll which voted to reinstate political threads "will of the people" and all that, therafter all went quiet, when I asked what had been decided I was told that as the brexit thread was running the ban had obviously been lifted but as you say there was never any official announcement, nor were those members who had been banned ever reinstated, perhaps best not to reopen the can of worms eh?

    European withdrawal bill effect on boating

    Technically I am visiting, boat is UK built registered and vat paid and will return to UK one day - i hope not too soon. Meantime if I go into France in say 2022 what is to say there will not be consequences, if I return to UK and then back to Belgium what then. I am not a Belgian resident so n under their rules no need to reregister in Belgium. What exactly do you object to in asking the government to negotiate some free movement rules for boats (and people)? Quite so

    European withdrawal bill effect on boating

    here's one to be going on with "(a) the ability of recreational craft to retain Union Goods status;" OK I'm already in Europe so I might be alright Jack or I might not, who knows? but what about movement between EU and UK in future, or CWDF members planning to do so in the future

    European withdrawal bill effect on boating

    No, it is possible for our government to mitigate the worst of those consequences if persuaded to, without betraying the "will of the people"

    I was replying to this comment "but of little relevance to this forum. " it clearly is relevant.

    Indeed some of the stories of how we treat foreigners are shameful, is there some reason why we should not expect better of our government Bully for you, if you don't stay over 3 months it is hard to see how you will be affected

    European withdrawal bill effect on boating

    Not sure why you are not interested in the fate of those who may wish to move to Europe in the future, but in the here and now what happens if Belgium customs inspect my boat after brexit and say I have to pay duty on it, if I return to UK, your boat has been gone over 3 years please pay duty on it, if I return to UK and then back to Euroland. Nor am I happy that I will presumably not be allowed to stay over 3 months even if my boat is. If you don't care about the effects of Brexit on your fellow countrymen then please ignore this thread.

    Sorry I thought this was "canalworld forum" not "little englander canal forum" There are quite a few members on here that boat inland in Europe and I would hope the rest of you might have at least a little sympathy/interest in the predicament we have been put in.
