Thought for today.............a brand new toilet cassette could hold quite a number of tea bags, if the exterior was disguised as ‘well used’ I doubt many customs folk would delve too deep. A spare cassette can be handy too.

All you need now Ray is a tea mule, perhaps Jean or I could fill that roll when we’re allowed to travel then you’d be literally flushed with tea bags ??

No thanks required.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

That stock would last me about 7yrs Ray!

Just a thought - if you normally add a teabag to the mug, use a teapot instead. I'd get probably 5 or 6 cups out of my teapot if I filled it. As it is, I get 3.5 cups every time. In effect, I quadruple the length of time my teabags will last me!

So if we travel from the Continent to UK for the MOT with stuff bought here and then want to bring it back to the Continent will it be confiscated - if we have the receipts?

And if something is bought in UK but is clearly marked as 'Product of Spain'?


What about wine - grapes are products of plants?


Can we put it all into 'bond' at Dunkirk to be collected when we arrive back there?



Just asking.


Geoff

I'm sure we could economise on bags lots of ways Jean. Especially as I like very strong tasting tea and wring my bag out and Prue likes here like a cup of warm milk. It would be great if we could use my first bag in her cup as it still has enough flavour to work. But no for some inexplicable reason she has to have a new bag and whip it out as soon as it has water on it.

Actually we do get through six bags a day without visitors. So yes about 2 and a half years worth. But I like spares as you know.

No Geoff, not if you do have receipts or get it all itemised on entry.

I was asking about re-entry to EU, with products bought in EU.


But entering into UK what about jar of Bovril which was bought in UK?


It all gets a bit silly.


Even going into US years ago I declared an apple from home I had not eaten on the flight - lots of scratching of heads and then a nod of the head towards the door which said 'Feck off out of here with your apple'

And when it comes to condiments and store cupboard items I suppose it's OK to take back some Guérande salt back to France, but I'll have to leave the Herbes de Provence at home. 🙄

My wife was pulled out of the line and treated as a criminal when landing at LA with a Banana. I sniffer dog walked along the queue of passengers and sat beside my wife to indicate to the 'thug' she had food.

I know we are having a bit of a joke about this, but can someone please give links to



A The rules of products that are prohibited to be imported to UK.


B Likewise into EU


Actualy there are similar, but not identical, regulation across borders within EU, but no controls.
