Europe – ironical as ever

Europe announces vaccination certificate to help the poor British!

The news that the European Union is intent on the development of a vaccination certificate, to be known as a “digital green pass” is ironical in the extreme.

Since Brexit we have been plagued with difficulties which sadly are probably not what was expected. Our fishermen cannot sell their catches to Europe due to the enforcement of a “safety regulation”; trying to buy goods from Europe for ordinary people using online sites has proved extremely difficult and for Brits in France, not only are they picking up a bill for VAT on top of their purchases, which may already include VAT, they are doing so with the privilege of a €15 account charge.

And so it goes on and once travelling starts up again, who knows what nice little hurdles will be placed in our way?

But the digital green pass sounds wonderful – just what we want, isn’t it to get us into Europe free and easy through the coronavirus regulations.

Well of course, Europe wants this – the last thing Europe wants is to squeeze the life out of British holiday makers who would still like to go into Europe. All that lovely money and the European Union want it!

So what this goes to prove is that the EU can be terribly co-operative when they want to be – that is when it is to their advantage.

But let’s make no mistake, we want this too.

Happy holidays!
