Brexit Day tasting in Sweden

Post by djewesbury » 16:11 Fri 20 Dec 2019

DRT is very patriotically marking Brexit Day by flying to Sweden. While he's there he will enjoy the fruits of one of Britain's oldest international trade partnerships, the Methuen Treaty, by drinking vintage port. To cap the symbolism, he will be joined by Mr. Kneeshaw, representing the Republic of Ireland!

We expect negotiations to be brisk and for many outstanding issues to be settled during Derek's visit. We have set aside the whole of the following day and evening for confirmatory procedurals.

Pray tell, which Brexit Day are these fine gentlemen flying to Sweden? I am being told by SWMBO that it is extremely important I find things to do in my retirement so that I don't sink into the depths of depression.

When I return to Heathrow from the EU on Sunday 2nd February does anyone know which passport queue I need to join?

And do I need to paint my passport blue?
