If the UK leaves the EU with no deal on 31st October

If you are using and the UK leaves the EU with no deal on 31st October the EU will arbitrarily close down all .eu websites registered with UK postal addresses, like ours, on 1st January 2020.

This is because a web site registered for a UK citizen with a UK address will no longer be allowed.

As we are two pensioners with only one home, in the UK, we do not have access to an EU address/subsidiary.

From the 1st January will stop working

Normally we would automatically redirect you to one of our other sites but if is not working neither will any redirection.

This will not help you if you find us via an existing search engine link as you will be told the site does not exist and denied access.

We are powerless to do anything about this petty, farcical state of affairs.

What can you do?

All we can suggest is that you start to use or instead and change any browser bookmarks.

If you have a published reference or bookmark with in it, the simplest way to deal with it is to change the eu to org (or eu to com/pompeiiinpictures).

If the UK has a deal

The same issue still arises but the site will be closed down after a year or so, whatever is the Brexit deal transition period.

Our apologies

We know a lot of you in Europe use

Please accept our apologies for this situation which is not of our making and we hope you continue to find pompeiiinpictures as valuable as you have in the past.

If you have an ideas on how to better tackle this problem we would welcome any input.
