When we arrived in Germany to be with Mrs M the plane decanted us at a Schengen gate and so we were able to enter the country without a passport check – the first time since the EU opened its internal borders to the willing (before it closed many of them again).

It will blow another hole in Germany's energy security, of course, but there's plenty of dirty brown coal ...
