The evangelist at my local halal butchery yesterday, very earnestly trying to convert the guy on the counter by handing him arms full of books and magazines, not wanting to take no for an answer, had a stammer which I'm not making fun of - but added to the bizarre spectacle.  Both of them far too polite to tell each other where to get off.  Good thing customers get priority - or I'd still be waiting for mince to make my spaghetti monster sauce.

This from The Spectator

 

 

 

"If Britain and Australia agree a post-Brexit trade deal, Liz Truss the international trade secretary has said that free movement between the two countries could form part of an agreement. In a press conference this morning in Canberra, Truss explained that ‘Australians want to come and live and work in Britain, and Brits want to come and live and work in Australia’.

 

In response to a question about free movement and the relaxation of current checks, Truss said that this was ‘certainly something that we will be looking at as part of our free trade negotiations’. This potentially could take the form of pure free movement (like Australia has with New Zealand) or a visa that allows anyone who can find a job to stay (like Australia has with the United States)."

 

 

 

Hopefully, NZ will get in there and manage the same thing if Brexit is ever allowed to happen.

Truss has subsequently totally recanted on this. She mis-spoke.

Not exactly. She made a statement to Sky News saying that it "shouldn't be confused with freedom of movement in the EU" that seems to be it. Not that it wasn't anyone's aim to make movement and working between the two easier than it is now.

It would interesting to see the mental gymnastics.
Dont want EU citizens coming here and taking our uk jobs but we are not racist.

But we are happy for free movement between uk and Australia...

Dont think we want the influx of people from the UK that would result in that.

You’re right - I withdraw my word ‘totally’. But I don’t understand your last sentence.

I suspect you'd mostly get the ones with plenty in the bank, so you may in fact..!

She said something about trade agreements covering the way that citizens from the countries concerned could work in each place - presumably with the intent of making it easier rather than harder!

Post Brexit, it would be UK citizens only not EU citizens.

 

 

 

You're correct though - otherwise you may get a "Merkel Moment" where "Germany" lets in heaps which in fact means "everyone in Schengen, if not the EU, lets in heaps"!
