If I purchase something 2nd hand ( from ebay) from the UK mainland...
I have to pay 20% VAT when it gets shipped to NI.... Correct?
If so.... can I claim that back?
“The UK mainland”  ;D ;D ;D

David Frost (remember him) tweeting today giving the Irish government a gentle reminder of the status of the border in Ireland.

''1 The border between Ireland and Northern Ireland is an international border between two different countries.

One could be forgiven for thinking occasionally from Irish Government public statements that sometimes they forget that.

2 Obviously we must have rules for third country nationals entering the UK via that border just as at all others.

And, for the avoidance of doubt, though after all these years it shouldn't need saying, that does not of course mean those rules have to be enforced *at* the border.''



This is his justification for the new visa waiver requirements to enable the free movement of non UK/Irish citizens across the border. This hot on the heels of the UK government (assisted by the DUP) voting for the anti refugee bill which prevents the smooth provision of a sanctuary for Ukranians seeking refuge from the war. I expect that they will only become more insular as time goes on as they try to promote a 'best of British' which plays to their base.

The cut in VAT on insulation in Britain is the start of divergence. No doubt the DUP will advocate insulation now, and not just from foreigners.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Totally in keeping with most of the Tory cabinet.

Unfortunately barring a border poll there is no credible opposition, they could win the next 2 elections by a landslide. So we are stuck with the c***ts.

And an unelected one at that!
Will they have  agents wandering about the 6 Counties looking out for people who look "unBritish" ?

That by-election where they had the seat since God was a gasúr and lost it may suggest otherwise.

By-elections mean sweet FA - you know nothing of politics if you think a protest vote will mount to a credible challenge at the next election. Labour are absolutely useless, that smug **** wiped the floor with them yesterday when he again shafted the masses.

This Budget has unravelled within a day I can't see the Tories recovering from the mess they've made of COVID and the economy.

I'd expect more measures to be released shortly given the sheer weight of public opinion against that shite yesterday.

Sunak badly under pressure since the announcement and looked uncomfortable in all his appearances since. Maybe not the Prime Minister in waiting!

Boris is probably loving it as takes the flak away from him.

I can see the tories recovering. They recover from everything.

You have to laugh over here and Jeffrey shouting about the protocol and you can't take away the VAT cut or whatever it was on solar panels. Ai Jeffrey the people who will now be struggling to pay their bills will be very concerned about their solar panels  ::) I think he may be one of their worst leaders yet and that is saying something.
