Brexit latest news – Amazon to STOP selling some items in parts of UK but City convinced we can ‘thrive’ outside EU

AMAZON will stop selling certain products in parts of the UK amid concern over post Brexit custom rules.

The online giant fears taxes will now have to be paid twice on all shipments of wine, beer and spirits sent from British mainland across the Irish Sea.

One Amazon customer from Belfast, who didn’t want to be identified, told ITV News his subscription for a delivery of whisky every three months had been cancelled. 

“My biggest issue is they will no longer supply any alcohol to Northern Ireland, despite me being a Prime customer and having bought hundreds of items over the past fifteen years,” he said.

Meanwhile, the City of London said the capital’s loss of some financial business due to Brexit has not been catastrophic and the City will continue to thrive even if the EU “irrationally” blocks access.
