On a more personal annoyance, UPS are blaming the fact that my new mac which took 4 days to get from china to Donnington has taken 10 days and counting to get from Donnington to Chippenham, on Brexit.

Wankers.

Seems to have cleared its custom papers in Donnington.  Then sat there for a while.  Then gone to Tamworth.  Then sat there again.  Then been incorrectly sorted.  And now Im still waiting.  Lady Ive spoken to says they are completely snowed under.

I managed to get a package from New Delhi to my doorstep in five days. I was most impressed. No customs bill (yet) either.

On the downside, my usual AliExpress bargains are no longer bargains, they're adding 20% VAT at checkout now.

Donnington is one of the largest air freight hubs. Most international mail into and out of the UK will go via there.

DHL is one of the main carriers.

It's at EMA (East Midlands Airport) by the way. No googling, visited there a lot of times over a number of years previously.

Indeed, also spent a lot of time there several years ago. Unrelated to the above but a great track for both cars and bikes. Watched a lot of F3, BTCC and Superbikes there Smiley

I'm sure you would "hot-foot" it up the Fosse Way on occasion too.

There's a few Don...gton variants about. Knew The Donnington near Newbury, used to visit the "castle" when I lived that way. But yeah my mitsake and I should know better, as I do know both locations quite well.

Long day...

After the news that Nissan are committed to Sunderland, a lot of Brexiteers now claiming that BMW are going to take over the Honda site, any truth in that?

it would make sense for bmw in that they have plants at Oxford and Swindon and could consolidate, but the moving costs should be high.

As for thruth in it, I think it was employee 'plant talk' but I have seen nothing in the media about it
