It is pretty outrageous for the European Union to say that Britons will be unable to travel freely to the continent after January 1 because of strict coronavirus rules. On January 1 Britain joins the group of countries that are considered as third-countries to the EU and given the high number of Coronavirus cases marked in the country, the chances are high that Britain will be listed among the countries to which the EU has sealed off its borders since mid-March 2020.

This is complete madness because if it was alright for Britons to travel to the European continent on December 31 it should be alright for them to do so on January 1. The European Union is pondering banning all but non-essential travel for Britons post Brexit in a short term move because of the coronavirus legislation. But Britain already recommends all but not non-essential travel to Spain (bar the Canary Islands) so really this is nothing new.

My advice: Keep Calm and Carry On and hope to see you in Majorca soon.-

27 countries in the EU but seems only Germany and France are allowed to pass comment.The rest,including Spain are just puppets (or muppets). Becoming a joke to the UK that the TWO tell the others what to think and what to do. Grow up,get a voice,pathetic.It is your island which will suffer much more than Germany and France.

Don't you mean , "All but essential travel?" You wrote "Banning all but non-essential travel" in at least two of your articles. On the planet, dimension and multiverse I come from that makes no sense. In other words you have written the following. "They are already considering to ban all travel except frivolous or unnecessary travel." Who does the editting at your rag? They need to be sacked. I would expect someone over a millenials age not to make such errors, at least not to be repeated.

This is a mischaracterisation of the position. British people could travel to the EU not because the Covid cases were low, they aren't.... but because they were effectively EU members until the end of the transition period. Once the transition period ends they are no longer EU citizens and get treated as a third country.... just like 52% of those who voted wanted. For the EU to continue to allow British citizens, they would have to make an exception, as they have with low Covid countries but Britain's cases are too high. Sound logic I'm afraid.
