Brexit border check trials

Trial of Brexit border checks causes five-mile lorry queues in Kent

 

M20 backlog caused by French authorities testing post-Brexit checks at the Eurotunnel. :-D

 

Queues of trucks stretching for five miles unexpectedly built up in Kent on Tuesday after the French started a trial of post-Brexit checks. :-D

 

Lorries on their way across the English channel were forced to stop in long lines up to junction 11 on the M20 as they tried to approach the Eurotunnel entrance just outside Folkestone and the Port of Dover. :-D

 

The queues give a glimpse of things to come in January whether a deal is reached or not with the government last month warning of queues of 7,000 lorries on the main motorway routes to both Eurotunnel and Dover ferries in the worst-case scenario.:-(

 

The delays were caused after the Police Aux Frontières, the equivalent to Border Force, rehearsed new immigration procedures. Under the Le Touquet agreement, French authorities conduct immigration checks at the UK side of the tunnel and the port. :-D

 

Great idea to have a dummy run to see how the dummies clusterfcuk is going to clog up. Remind me again, who voted for this? *-)

If this is the best you can come up with to explain the benefits of your batty Brexit then it's ever likely we're in a mess. *-)

Cut him some slack......he's trying very hard to tell us the "benefits" of Brexit. It's taken him four years to think this pearler up. *-)

Its not the French that are making EU Truckers queue at Dover, its Brexit. How you think they will all be French or European trucks from a few small photos of lorries nose to tail is beyond me. Do we not export anything now? How do you know those foreign registered trucks are not carrying British goods for export also?

 

I guess we will find out come January just how bad it will be in both directions but I worked out how long a queue of 7000 lorries would be. Around 100 miles.

Not that many would be empty. Truckers usually get a return load. But, assuming the goods originally delivered to UK were just the normal, run of the mill, stuff, and the trucks can't return with whatever they are carrying, how is that good for the UK? The same amount of goods, carried by the same number of trucks, would still need to enter/leave the UK, wouldn't they, whether even of all the the trucks were UK registered. They'd all still have to cross the border into France, so the same queue would result. The only difference would be that British trucks and drivers would then be wasting time and money in the queue. How would that be better for the UK? Do tell.

Seeing as we import a lot more from the EU than we export ;-) .........

 

Then it follows that a lot of those trucks will be empty does it not? :-| ........

 

So the vast majority are EU haulage company drivers that are wasting their time and money waiting to be allowed home :D .........

1) It's taken you a long time to accept that fact..

2) Not necessarily.

3) And if that happens.....who do you think is going to make up the loss? The supplier, manufacturer or distributor will pass it on to you, the customer. You delight in inflicting what you think is harmful to the EU when the reality is you're simply making a noose for your own neck. Yet another brilliant example of how Brexit continues to be a monumental act of self harm for Britons. *-)
