How the Britsh Government works

Date added: 19th August 2019

There has been much in the news recently on what MPs, Government and Parliament can or can't do. If anyone is interested in how our Government and Constitution work, I recently came across an interesting document "The Cabinet Manual A guide to laws, conventions and rules on the operation of government".

If anyone would like to look at it, it is available here free.

TRAVEL TO EU COUNTRIES AFTER UK LEAVES EU

Date added: 1st September 2019

Passport and visa requirements

If you are a non-EU national wishing to visit or travel within the EU, you will need a passport:
valid for at least 3 months after the date you intend to leave the EU country you are visiting,
which was issued within the previous 10 years,
and possibly a visa. You should apply for a visa from the consulate or embassy of the country you are visiting. If your visa is from a Schengen area country, it automatically allows you to travel to the other Schengen countries as well. If you have a valid residence permit from one of those Schengen countries, it is equivalent to a visa. You may need a national visa to visit non-Schengen countries.

Border officials in EU countries may ask for other supporting documents such as an invitation letter, proof of lodging, return or round-trip ticket. For the precise requirements contact the local consular services of the EU country in question.

There are a number of countries whose nationals do not need a visa to visit the EU for three months or less. The list of countries whose nationals require visas to travel to the United Kingdom or Ireland differs slightly from other EU countries.

For more information go to the European Union website at
