'No-deal' Brexit would complicate driving, data and roaming, United Kingdom says

UK will still have to pay Brussels in a no-deal Brexit says Philip Hammond Mobile firms urged to avoid roaming charges in event of no-deal Brexit

The latest batch of no-deal position papers from the government say British motorists may have to apply for International Driving Permits if they head to Europe after March 29 when Britain leaves the EU.

The National Audit Office previously estimated that as many as 7 million British drivers would apply for new global driving permits in the first year after a potential no-deal Brexit.

Renewing a passport costs a reasonably hefty £72.50 (€80), while the cost of an global drivers' permit is a mere £5.50 (€6).

- Holders of legal firearms face additional bureaucracy if they want to take them to EU countries, because the European Firearms Pass would no longer be available to United Kingdom citizens.

The Musicians' Union is the latest organisation to formally come out in favour of a referendum on the final Brexit deal negotiated (or not) by the United Kingdom government.

The pro-Europe Best for Britain campaign said the re-imposition of roaming charges could cost business people visiting the European Union up to £778 a month.

Hurricane Florence Downgraded as Trump Claims It’s "More Powerful"
Next week, when Florence has finally passed the Carolinas and moved into the Ohio Valley, the rain will have been the big story. Boarding up his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Chris Pennington watched the forecasts and tried to decide when to leave.

"People will drive when they are on their holidays as well, so I would have thought it was something she'd have been congratulating the government on, in making sure when we leave the European Union there is a seamless transition for people who want to drive outside the United Kingdom".

Less clear, however, is what will happen on the free flow of data.

If EVs sold in Britain are not counted as part of EU targets, suggest the documents, this could force manufacturers to shift sales to other European countries.

A guidance paper on 'Satellites and space programmes' warns that UK-based businesses and researchers will be shut out from bidding for future EU Global Navigation Satellite System contracts and "may face difficulty carrying out and completing existing contracts".

Their comments came after Mr Raab warned on Thursday that Britain could withhold some of the £39 billion "divorce bill" agreed in December if the there was no overall agreement.

But many business chiefs and investors fear politics could scupper an agreement, thrusting the world's fifth largest economy into a "no-deal" Brexit that they say would weaken the West, spook financial markets and silt up the arteries of trade. "That's why we're putting so much effort into getting a deal over the next six to eight weeks".
