It might cost more to ship to the UK, but a few years ago I think the EU brought in new regulations on posting internationally which increased the cost of posting to the UK to about €13. So I'm not convinced too much will change on that front.
I understand stuff has to be checked, but surely that's what Xray scanners are for. Not really going to fit much in the way of drugs in a jiffy bag that weighs sweet FA. How much does it cost to have a role of wide tape custom printed? Taxpayer foots the bill so no one cares.
However you voted on brexit, I think we're in for a bumpy ride, but by the willing hand of our own government, not the EUs.
....And don't even get me started on the whole food standard/US meat import thing. :-o
Congrats on Brexit, but clearly this means we won't be doing business anymore.

And even though lego is expensive, you can get a higher value of drugs in a jiffy bag than lego.

It's only since TLG have taken over that BL's staff have had no choice but to recognise that they are not operating in a black hole, and that legislation they don't like can't simply be ignored.
It's still far from compliant with regard to EU consumer law by the way.
