Believe it or not, I used to take holidays in Greece and Spain long before they became part of the EU, I didn't find it irksome getting through passport control.  And with the state the world is in today I would say the more stringent the checks, the better.

Haven't you heard Lynne, the i was sold off to Johnston Press last year after plummeting sales, and has no link to The Independent. Quite why anybody would want to buy such a failing newspaper is beyond me. And a passport check is a passport check, I don't see why that should take any longer after March 2019.

The UK very wisely did not join up to the Schengen Agreement, so surely you still have to show your passport when visiting to the Costa del Sol?

Air travel has always been beset by delays even before we joined the EEC in the 70s.  And how do you know that delays are more than likely to increase after we have left the EU, or is that just another Brexit scare story?  I'm not at all surprised this came from The Independent, all it does these days is run countless anti-Brexit articles.

Since we joined the EEC/EU in 1973 various governments have increasingly signed away our sovereignty with a number of new treaties coming into force.  Not once were people given a choice as to whether this ever closer union was actually wanted. French and Dutch voters made a stand in 2005 when they rejected the proposed EU constitution.  All further referendums on the subject were cancelled to ...

I thought reducing air travel and our carbon footprint was meant to be a good thing?  And more staycations will be good for the economy.

That's an awful lot of bleating from Ryanair.  Other airlines don't appear to getting hysterical about what might or could happen.  I have no doubt that a rabbit will be pulled out of the hat and a deal agreed before the Brexit deadline.

But it's not unused, is it?
