Anyways, sitting in a pub near parliament after another day of strike action, this is how ones point is made, being active, not spouting off, within a forum, which I am sure not many politicians frequent.
The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
So can one apply for a visa from individual governments, for Spain from 1st April for 90 days . One for Germany from 1st June for 90 days and one for France from 1st August for 90 days? Then travel back to UK on 20th November? Without breaking any rules in any country. EU and Schengen do not write laws controlling citizens directly - the Rules have to be re-drafted into law by Nation States. So at the time one leaves France one still has a French Visa which has not expired. So what law has one broken and in which country?
Dunno if this needs a separate thread but I just picked this up from the Brexit thread on FACTS.
Insurance implications if you have a prang in Europe after Brexit.
"Road traffic accidents in the EU
From 29 March 2019, in the event that there is no EU Exit deal, UK residents involved in a road traffic accident in an EU or EEA country should not expect to be able to make a claim in respect of that accident via a UK-based Claims Representative or the UK Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).
Instead, UK residents involved in a road accident may need to bring a claim against either the driver or the insurer of the vehicle in the EU or EEA country where the accident happened. This may involve bringing the claim in the local language.
In the event of an accident in an EU or EEA country caused by an uninsured or an untraced driver, UK residents may not receive compensation if there is no EU Exit deal. This will vary from country to country.
If involved in a road traffic accident in an EU or EEA country before 29 March 2019, you may need to bring legal proceedings in the UK against either the insurer or the MIB before 29 March 2019. After 29 March 2019, you may need to bring legal proceedings against either the responsible driver or the insurer of the vehicle in the EU or EEA instead. If you need more information about this, you should seek legal advice."
Lifted from this document. Prepare to drive in the EU after Brexit - GOV.UK
I think this forum and my own has a relationship with AIB so I could ask them to comment although Im not sure even insurance brokers necessarily know whats going on either.
Like many Government pronouncements I believe this is flawed, as it does not state that it concerns claims against Third Parties.
Claims for damage to one's own vehicle, e.g. if one runs into a ditch, could still be made against one's UK Insurer, because one has a UK-binding contract with that insurer, if it covers travel in the EU.
