ETIAS is not expected to be in operation until 2021, and the USA is one of the 61 countries (those which don't require a visa for entry to the Schengen zone) that will be affected.

Thanks ali - good to know.

They are a new thing, and don't exist yet. The plan is that they will be introduced in 2021. Once they do exist, all non-visa nationals (which includes Americans) will require one. Visa nationals will still require visas as they do now.

One thing that isn't actually completely put to bed yet is whether Britain is to require visas of EU people (other than Irish people) wishing to visit the UK for tourist purposes. The EU is assuming that it won't and is probably right in that assumption, but there are a few on the far right who want that to happen. If it should happen, then the EU has a dropped a not-all-that-subtle hint that it will in turn reconsider its position and require visas of British people wishing to visit the EU.

I am hardly surprised at the 27 looking like they will impose some kind of restriction on Brits visiting. I don't suppose I should be surprised at the right-wing press getting all snitty about it either.
Is this an opportunity to say -- "Did this possibility not cross your mind?"

You should be surprised, they have suggested that the intention is not to do that

They reserve the right to do so, though, and that is a right which they don't have at the moment.

7 may not be a massive imposition on most people, but it's 7 that we wouldn't have had to pay if we hadn't chosen to leave. When the possibility was raised during the referendum campaign, the Leave campaign said it was scaremongering and wouldn't happen. Wrong!

As I said above, I've been to France for the afternoon just because I felt like it before now, and that will no longer be possible. Maybe not the end of the world, but it does not make my life better - and we were promised that everything would be so much better in so many ways. Wrong!

I wish to push Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees Mogg down a slime pit.

Look, I know you don't like Somerset or New York, but there is no need for that caricature.

One of the components of the slime is super glue. That way they cannot get out of the pit.

I don't think superglue will adhere to anything as oily as Rees-Mogg.

The year is 2137.
Business in the House of Commons is about to begin for the day, but first the Prime Minister must propose the Theresa May Brexit Deal Bill.
As usual, this is voted down 649-1.
No-one knows the origins of this ancient ritual.
The next item is a discussion of provision for relief for refugees from Betelgeuse, whose star went supernova last week.

On a point of pedantry, Betelgeuse is about 640 lightyears away, so it could have gone supernova just after Columbus discovered America and we wouldn't know it yet.........

But by then we might have faster than light travel and communications.
I read it in a book.
