    Are you sure? If you look at the left hand side of the address bar it should show a padlock icon with a red line through it. Click on this and it should flag the site as unencripted and recommend using a unique password.

    Now now. There are so many benefits from leaving that there is no need to let anyone know what they are. Our dear leaders have told us so. So it must be true surely.

    My insurance with a number of different companies has included comprehensive EU cover, without notice, for years. What I don't know is if I said I didn't want it would I be offered a reduced premium. I doubt it but it would be interesting to know.

    Norway and Switzerland both in EFTA. Norway in EEA and Switzerland, though not a member, helped negotiate the EEA agreement. Sounds a bit like cake and eat it to me. Of course UK driving licences will, for tourists, still be valid but HGV and PSV licences perhaps more problematic. IDP requirement for the EU maybe, maybe not, who knows. What about EU car insurance cover. At present it's included in every policy by law. Will it be included in UK policies from next April or will we have to pay more for it? There seems to be a great deal of speculation by some people that nothing will change. I'd like to know who they are getting their information from it's not in the public domain from a reliable source as far as I can see.

    Whatever anyone thinks might happen, the truth of the matter is no one actually has any clue what things will be like in just over 12 months. Only those that expect the worst can be sure things will be no worse than they expected and hopefully better.

    Time will tell. The good/bad news is we don't have long to wait to find out either way.

    We always had to have an International Driving Permit before we joined the EEC, why should it be any different after we leave the EU? That said they are simple to obtain and not expensive. l'm afraid it's just another one of many "extra costs" that we will all have to live with. We will no longer be able to share the costs of the many cakes we now enjoy, we will have to pay the full cost of every one ourselves. Why that should come as a surprise I'm at a loss to understand.

    Ouistreham Disruption 11/12 March 2018

    If that's all there is I would have thought he'd be more likely to die of boredom long before he walked out because of over work.

    But the reverse is just as valid an argument. Why always assume the UK is always correct? I'm afraid experience over the last few years casts doubt on the wisdom of a large proportion of the population.

    French CRIT'Air Certificate

    Sarcasm and venom? Not intentional I can asure you. I was merely attempting to right a wrong perpetrated on the much maligned designers of the UK motorway system. "Have you never come across the M6 between Birmingham and Catthorpe". To be perfectly honest, no I haven't although I'm sure it's a great example of British engineering. To my shame the M6 has, for me, never gone further than Birmingham to Stoke-on-Trent.

    Where does the M4 go between then? And what about half of the M25 and the M27? I know they're south of The Wash but...Obviously I've been misinformed.

    I imagine that if the company is sold as "a going concern" then the contract with the CI would remain in force. If the company assets are broken up then anything could happen. I suppose a lot depends if the current agreement is seen a bonus or millstone.
