Does it not make you wonder what Euratom actually does then?
I also am told that the people at Cern and the European Space Agency are
saying they exist outside of the EU regulatory framework so us leaving
should not affect things except the possible need for visas to work in each
others countries as that has not been needed with Britain part of the EU.
This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
CERN has never been part of any EU framework as it predates the EU by a
good 30 years. CERN is, furthermore, an international organisation
based in Switzerland with a frontier-free extension into France (my
office was in France for the most part and I walked across the border
into Switzerland to have lunch at one of the CERN restaurants).
CERN's status is on a par with UN organisations in Geneva (such as the
UN, WHO, WMO, ...) and its employees have special status (I paid no
income or local taxes when I worked there). CERN tells the Swiss who it
intends to employ and the employee is automatically issued with a
residence permit for Switzerland (valid until you leave CERN).
So the issue of "work permits" etc does not arise.
"Hard" and "Soft" Brexit are code words for Leaving or Staying in the EU,
rather than for the terms of our departure.
I was always convinced that all it would need was a sufficiently cunning
plan. Fortunately the Brexit lunatics never bleated that having
safeguards based on inspection was an intolerable loss of sovereignty.
