Brits could face roaming and data charges in Europe in case of no deal Brexit

Описание

Brits could face roaming and data charges in Europe in case of no deal Brexit government sources have admitted.  On Thursday the Brexit department will release a fresh raft of technical Brexit papers including one on mobile phone charges.  Without a deal sources say phone users could see the return of levies for using mobile devices on the continent.  The pro-Europe Best for Britain campaign said the re-imposition of roaming charges could cost business people visiting the EU up to £778 a month.  Liberal Democrat MP and Best for Britain supporter Layla Moran said: "The cost of a hard Brexit on British travellers is becoming abundantly clear.  "Millions of people are facing higher costs to make calls and texts abroad because of the Prime Minister's botched Brexit plans."  Phone roaming and data charges cost British consumers an estimated £350m a year before they were abolished by the EU.  But several phone companies have already promised they would not reimpose the charges - including Vodafone and Three.  While others would be unlikely to risk losing customers by introducing the fees.  Government sources also say there could be UK legislation to stop the charges being imposed.  Earlier this year the Government said that the UK will not be part of the EU's Digital Single Market but did propose a "digital relationship" that covers telecommunications and infrastructure.  Other areas covered by the documents will include the impact of a no deal scenario on standards relating to the environment and vehicles.  The papers will be published after a special meeting of the Cabinet focused on how a no deal outcome could be handled. Read More Latest Brexit news  Meanwhile, the first meeting of the Joint Ministerial Committee on European Negotiations since Parliament's summer recess will also be held Thursday.  It will bring together senior ministers, members of the Scottish and Welsh administrations, and representatives from the Northern Ireland civil service where powersharing is currently suspended.  Phone roaming and data charges cost British consumers an estimated £350m a year before they were abolished by the EU.

Why Brexit happened -- and what to do next | Alexander Betts

We are embarrassingly unaware of how divided our societies are, and Brexit grew out of a deep, unexamined divide between those that fear globalization and those that embrace it, says social scientist Alexander Betts. How do we now address that fear as well as growing disillusionment with the political establishment, while refusing to give in to xenophobia and nationalism?

Putin handles corruption LIKE A BOSS

Putin handles corruption LIKE A BOSS

The war against Putin stems from the sudden inability for crooks to plunder Russia's resources as well as get away with stealing budget funds - and - God forbid - have to pay taxes via their independent companies (often, contracted to government projects!) The man mentioned in the first clip, Mr. Belalov, ran away and was granted asylum in the UK. He cited political reasons for his inability to stay in Russia, when he was simply siphoning money from the government. There are many outtakes like these - I picked only a couple for this compilation.

The Government's contingency plans for a no deal brexit amount to a torrent of details from stock piles of medical supplies, to warnings that Britons living elsewhere in Europe could lose access to UK banking and pension services.

For Students: http://l.prageru.com/2aozfkP JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2aoz2y9 Script: If one big government is bad, imagine how much worse two big governments would be. But that’s what people living in Europe have had to deal with: their own nation’s bloated government and the super-national government of Europe, now known as the European Union. Bureaucracy times two! How’s that for a horror show? Well, actually, you’ve no idea. It’s worse than you think. Believe me—I know, because for seventeen years, I’ve represented South East England as a member of the European Parliament, the EU’s legislative body. I was also leader of the UK Independence Party, or UKIP, where I lead Britain’s efforts to leave the European Union. To their everlasting credit, that’s just what happened on June the 23rd, 2016: The United Kingdom left the European Union. The world knows it as “Brexit.” Brexit is a statement of national sovereignty. Don’t misunderstand me: I like nations. I like borders. I like the people that live within those borders making their own laws. But I don’t like it when faceless bureaucrats make laws for nations they don’t even live in. But that’s what they do in the European Union. Imagine a Belgian telling a Brit how much he can charge his customers—or the reverse. The EU bureaucrats do this in a myriad of different ways, all day, every day. It is a conspiracy of the elites. Who are those elites? Well, they’re a bunch of self-important, overpaid, social engineers with useless college degrees who have never done a proper day’s work in their lives and have no connection with ordinary, decent people. I’ll take the good sense of an Italian farmer or a French baker over the arid intellectualism of an EU bureaucrat any day. And I say these things not as an anti-European; I love Europe! It’s a fantastic, exciting, great continent: different peoples, languages, and cultures. But these peoples, with their languages and cultures, have effectively been hijacked by a giant, ever-expanding bureaucracy: the European Union. People will say, “but isn’t there a parliament, a European parliament, that represents the people of Europe?” Well, yes, but this body has got no real power; it can’t make its own laws. Rather, the power resides with the European Commission. They’re unelected and they can’t be removed, and that’s how absurd the whole thing is. The European Parliament meets in Brussels. At least, that’s what I thought when I was elected there. But once a month, do you know what happens? They load the contents of our offices and papers into big, plastic trunks, and they put those trunks on lorries, and they drive them nearly 400 miles down Europe’s motorways to a French city called Strasbourg where, for four days, the contents of our offices, and our papers, are put into a new office, and the parliament then sits there. Twelve times a year this back-and-forth happens, and this from an organization who say they want to reduce their level of carbon footprint! This, from an organization whose accounts have not been given a clean bill of health by the auditors for the last twenty years! This…a parliament? It’s more like a traveling circus.
