The return of the booze cruise! Ferry chiefs plan to slash wine and beer prices after Britain leaves the EU

Brexit will see the return of the "booze cruise" as ferry-passengers will enjoy duty free wine and cigarettes for first time in nearly 20 years.

The British Chamber of Shipping, which represents cross-Channel ferry operators, said that duty free will be "automatically" introduced on cross-channel ferries after Britain leaves the customs union.

Presumably this will also apply on Ferries to the UK from Ireland, and on flights - and possibly on the train to Belfast?

Better keep quiet on this before it becomes a Brexit bargaining chip.

"Why you complain about ziss hard border, you get duty free - you too like ze 'drinks and women', yes?"

Ryanair will be paying us to fly to the UK with the profits they can make on duty free.
