Now Copenhagen airport trolls Brexit Britain

Expert trolling


The trolling of Brexit Britain by countries remaining in the EU has begun with these posters referencing the classic WW2 slogan spotted at Copenhagen airport, writes STEVE ANGLESEY

When/if we officially leave the EU, Britons will lose their automatic right to travel anywhere in the EU just by presenting a passport.

Instead we will be subject to the same rules as Americans and are likely to have to apply for an ESTA-style pass into the Schengen zone.

The European Travel Information and Authorisation System (ETIAS) will cost seven euros and will last for three years.

Prospective travellers will be asked to list personal information including any criminal convictions over the past 20 years.

Even successfully being approved does not guarantee entry and British passengers are likely to face additional questions about the travel plans at passport control - yet another Brexit benefit they didn’t put on the side of a big red bus.
