There's a serious point in there, can't remember which paper mentioned it but if, at the last moment it emerges there is no deal (say 2259.59 on March 29th) there are several flights which have set off from the UK towards the EU (and vice versa) which MAY have to return without landing/fly-over permission. "Cinderella flights" I recall? Now I'm just quoting what I read, and I don't believe for one minute they couldn't carry on - it would be so absurd by both sides for that not to happen, yet it underlines how important it is to GET a deal and everything signed up - Just In Case. If there's no deal, yet we still have flights and Eurostar, then something's been signed so there IS a deal even if there isn't one....also to keep things moving the UK may well have to accept whatever the EU offers, which may include a degree of fredom of movement. I just so wish I could watch all this unfold from the outside (and not the 2135 Conair Manchester to Dussledorf flight). Peanuts with your wine, sir?
