No more difficult to obtain than for other non-EU nationalities.

Jerseygirl, I agree that the argument went on far too long. However negative remarks regarding the country you live in and that of family and children are difficult resist answering particularly when the OP has never been there.

That aside, can you explain why it is OK on this thread or other threads to discuss USA, Canada, Australia, Russia but not India? There will be trade agreements post Brexit can they not be discussed?

Are you totally sure about that? It seems unlikely to me if I'm honest.

And again. They're trying to make as much money as they can before they lose some routes.

EU-registered airlines and transport companies will lose the right to operate internal UK-UK flights (such as London Gatwick - Belfast), under the right of cabotage.

For the same reason, those airlines registered in the UK will lose any flights that both start in finish in the remaining EU countries.

Cabotage is the transport of goods or passengers between two places in the same country by a transport operator from another country.

Cabotage in passenger aviation


European Union
Carriers licensed under EU law are permitted to engage in cabotage in any EU member state, with some limitations.[8][9] Ryanair, easyJet, Vueling, Wizz Air and Aer Lingus have bases and operate domestic services outside their home countries.

Unlikely?

So you suggested it's harder for Indians to get visas to the UK because you think it's unlikely to be no more difficult than for everyone else from non-EU countries.

Am I understanding you correctly? Have a read of the immigration rules and tell me where you are get the idea that getting a visa is more difficult for Indian nationals.

Could it be that there is confusion between visas for potential migrants and the visas for visiting, business activities etc. In these visa types there is difference between different countries and as I pointed out reciprocal difficulties for British nationals.
Visas for British travellers to that "I" country:lol: started after the assassination of its PM and because of sympathisers among migrants in the UK. Visas have been used by both ever since at ever increasing cost to the travellers.

I thought he was referring to all visa types. He hasn't specified a particular type.

The current situation about brexit and it's effect can be summed up by considering the story of a man jumping from the 100th floor of a building, and as he passes floor 50 he thinks, well this isn't so bad after all, nothing bad has happened YET.

Joining the EU was only going to end up as a disaster, but I like the analogy.

But the guy jumping is a base-jumper, and he'll open his parachute soon.

The UK was involved in, and agreed to, every EU decision since it joined. And got more opt-outs and rebates than every other member.

Is it a red, white and blue parachute? If not, there'll be a very hard landing.

Well that would silence one poster at least.
