The BBC is at last reporting the lorry queues at Dover which it is suggesting is a result of the upcoming Easter holiday and the lack of P&O ships.
According to Cieran, The Euro Courier:
Yet there are no queues on the French side of the channel …..
French customs are enforcing the rules and British customs are not – indeed HMRC’s own computer clearance system has broken down – so goods coming in to the UK are very largely unchecked. Goods leaving are. Because French customs are in charge of protecting the EU border from goods originating in a third country – the UK.
Nobody dares mention it but -oh joy! – the 24 hour delays for lorry drivers parked up on a Motorway with no food or toilets is actually another Brexit dividend – that we were told was ‘project fear’.
It’s only been going on for three weeks – and government has done absolutely nothing other than look the other way.
