A lot of things pro-Brexiteers didn't think about before voting in the referendum. They should be lucky there are still foreigners working in the farms and hospitals, otherwise they'd be picking their own fruits or wiping their own backsides.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

I’m sure there’s plenty of yes-voters who have regretted their choice

There are now many new restrictions in place that weren't there before. No pets without microchips. No healthcare. Passport with 6 months. 90 days max. Mobile roaming charges. Many more.

Brexit for Dummies (and Fido).

0 ( +1 / -1 )

A small price to pay for the freedom to control their own lives.

-7 ( +0 / -7 )

A small price to pay

We haven't begun to see the price.

Expect tsunamis of buyer's remorse.

Unless you want to travel with pets. Which is what this article is about. And clearly shows that it is restricting the freedom of people’s lives.

You don’t seem to understand that Europe can now enforce new restrictions that were not in place before. How does that give you more freedom? Passport colour and banana curvatures aside.

Right.

Let me list all the new freedoms I have....

That kind of control is an illusion. The pandemic is the best illustration of how much control people have. We’re all subject to what goes on around us. In a global society every international treaty relinquishes some sovereignty in exchange for the desired benefit. The Brexit deal is the only example I can think of where the new deal imposes more restrictions on people’s lives than the old. So much for freedom.
