Northern Ireland has become the first of UK region to put its foot down over what they say is the increasingly absurd Brexit position. Businesses said yesterday they were “simply not ready” for mandatory border checks from 1 January and have asked for an extension to the transition period, warning of a “huge black hole” in information. They have appealed to both the EU and UK.

You have got to wonder whether businesses in England will follow suit and appeal for an extension (again), given the current, significant challenges in UK supply chains, which will only get worse in January. Schools, already struggling to cope with Covid-19 restrictions, were yesterday told they must stock long-life products in preparation for supplies dwindling post-transition “to minimise the effect” on children.
