United Kingdom leaving the European Union

🕢︎ - 2020-01-28

I guess there are only a couple of days left until the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.

I am not quite sure what will happen to buying things online in the UK from "over here" in "Europe", but I suppose there will be taxes and fees to pay galore.

Too bad - I really liked buying all kinds of interesting pens at Cultpens, a company with a wide range of products and good service!

Another company I will miss ordering from is The Keyboard Company - I have bought 4 or 5 keyboards from them, they carry a nice range of products and they are proactive (I once ordered a combination of keyboard and replacement keys that didn't quite make sense, and they promptly warned me).

There are many things about the EU I am not especially impressed by, but my overall feeling now is that it makes more sense to work to improve it, than to dismantle it.

According to the prompt answer by journalist Karin Axelsson on Danish National Television to Klaus Seistrup's question, the trade rules stay the same for the rest of 2020.
