Captain Tom also wearing the flesh of a chav as some sort of macabre cloak.

That's how he has managed to sustain himself for so long, he feeds on the lifeforce of deceased chavs.

Fast forward two years. Post-Brexit Britain is a roaring success and when Rocsteady dares to return to the UK from a Poland destroyed by EU bureaucracy Captain Tom is ready to deal with him:

Things are looking pretty good.

Dutch TV news has aired footage of customs officers confiscating ham sandwiches from drivers arriving by ferry from the UK under post-Brexit rules banning personal imports of meat and dairy products into the EU.

Officials wearing high-visibility jackets are shown explaining to startled car and lorry drivers at the Hook of Holland ferry terminal that since Brexit, “you are no longer allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, fruit, vegetables, fish, that kind of stuff.”

To a bemused driver with several sandwiches wrapped in tin foil who asked if he could maybe surrender the meat and keep just the bread, one customs officer replied: “No, everything will be confiscated. Welcome to Brexit, sir, I’m sorry.”

I wish they would ask the immigrants how they voted in the referendum.

Suppliers in Britain have been telling companies in Northern Ireland that they will stop selling them goods, or are asking that they cover costs such as shipping and red tape as a condition of getting their orders filled.

One British-based company that deals regularly with builders’ suppliers north of the Border recently wrote to customers in the North asking them to cover new paperwork costs.

The letter shows that this company is seeking a total of £70 (€78.37) to cover paperwork needed to ship from Britain to Northern Ireland – £35 each for exit and entry documents at either side of the journey across the Irish Sea.

It also shows the company is seeking £140 to cover paperwork needed to ship from Britain to the Republic – £70 each for exit and entry documents.

The firm says that its shipping companies have told it that the best deal for Irish customers on either side of the Border may be to arrange shipping themselves and collect any goods they order from the British company’s premises.

It's tragic but unsurprising that so many English voters voted for Brexit without even considering Northern Ireland. I can't blame those people though, it's a failure of our education system and our media.

I had my first experience of imports from the EU today. I'll admit, it was a pain in the ass, but not because of the deal as such. Basically because of the rushed nature of the deal, and lack of advice from Government, nobody at a working level knew what was required. So now, to collect something from one of our EU customers, we need to have a customs invoice and a customs declaration from them. It took a ton of emails to work that out, and who had to provide the forms.

I will say, having been through it, it will hardly take us anymore time at all. We are talking about 30 secs of work as these documents are generated electronically. For our exports, we always had to provide customs invoices anyway.

So at present, the actual deal doesn't seem to be hurting my company much but the lack of advice from Government is staggering. Its a case of fumbling around in the dark. However, given I'm in aero engineering this is highly likely to be a pretty protected sector due to the international supply chain within the industry. I imagine for things like fish, the cluster strawberry float we are hearing in the news is highly likely.
