App to cut EU border queues won't be ready in time - BBC News

An app designed to reduce disruption for Brits travelling across the Channel will not be ready in time for a new EU border scheme, the boss of Eurostar has told the BBC.

Under the much-delayed Entry Exit System (EES), non-EU citizens will need to register fingerprints and a photo at the border from October.

It was hoped the app could allow passengers to do this remotely, and prevent long queues for UK travellers.

However, Eurostar boss Gwendoline Cazenave told the BBC that the rail firm was preparing for the checks to happen at stations as the app won’t be ready in time.

Holiday in the UK for a year. 

The EU seem v bitter about the UK leaving still and their petty actions mean we should consider alternatives.

I think it'd take just 12 months before they beg us to return for holidays. 

Come on UK, 1 year in UK and then review the situation.

The "new" immigration rules were formulated with British support while we were in the EU - we were enthusiastic about limiting third countries freedom to enter Europe. We didn't realise they would apply to us, and why would we? Until 2016 we would have thought it mad to put ourselves on a par with, say, Brazil or Nigeria when it comes to entering and travelling in our own continent.

Nah, you've missed the point. 

You have a border. You choose who to let in unhindered. For the EU it's personal.

For the UK, I say stay in the UK for 1 year and see what happens next. Hopefully I can buy up Spanish properly for pennies on the Great British Pound.

This just proves to me once again that the lethargic EUseless is nothing more than a lumbering arthritic dinosaur that's obviously not fit for purpose in today's fast paced modern world. 😂😂😂
