The UK thumbing their noses at the treaty they signed. What a disreputable nation.

UK delays post-Brexit border checks until end of 2023:

Naturally, if something that would still bring in benefit, UK would certainly delay the border checks.

After all, most British once thought Brexit must be good for the nation, somehow, that turns out to be messy and sour..

Where the annexed Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland is concerned, a number of condition contained with schedules contained with the Protocol are breeches of Treaty law under the signed agreement.

The UK Government signed the agreement.

So with this in mind I suspect UK government will at some point in the future withdraw from parts or all of the Protocol triggering Article 16.

Johnson Government appears to be stringing the EU commission along.

The EU commission has never fully accepted UK withdrawal from the European Union.

It may have exasperated the bitter breakdown in relations. It is broken.

I’m getting product to the UK in 3-4 days from Japan.

Customs clearance begins with product en route and documentation is computerised and efficient.

UK Government can have reservations, however Johnson Government signed the agreement.

It’s almost as if Brexit was an incredibly stupid decision.

Good to know, but not particularly relevant.

52% who voted leave is not considered 'most British', only the stupid and old people over-50 at the time were gullible to the lies of the Tory government.

Presumably by courier. I was told that Japan Post stopped accepting anything thicker than 3cm, hammering Japanese etailers. I get consignments by courier now as a result. Other Asian countries don't seem to have a problem moving stuff by post, but Japan Post does.

@Para Sitius. I'm over 50 and I voted remain.

Isn't it strange listening to British politicians outrage at Russia's "breech of international law" when they are shouting from the rooftops that they intend to "breech of international law," on Brexit/Protocol etc?

They have had zero respect for it themselves. Brexit only being one.
