    Default Said with a straight face

    Grant Shapps, the transport secretary, has confirmed plans making it compulsory for lorries crossing to France from the Port of Dover or Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone to obtain a permit before they enter Kent or face a £300 fine.
    ...
    New opportunities mean new ways of doing things and it’s sensible that we plan for all scenarios including the risk of short-term disruption to our busiest trade routes.


    By putting in place these plans we are ensuring Kent keeps moving, our fantastic haulage industry is supported and trade continues to flow as we embark on our future as a fully independent state.
    Government steps up plans to keep trade flowing at the end of the transition period - GOV.UK
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Gammons please remind me, was Brexit going to mean less or more red tape?

    Is it not about time that this little sub-forum was put out of its misery?

    It appears to be populated almost exclusively by an ever dwindling thicket of reactionary Luddites that simply refuse to accept the inevitability of our EU exit.

    It also appears that they are happy to ignore the oft-repeated will of the democratic British electorate and continue to metaphorically stamp their feet, wail, and gnash their teeth.

    Like Custer's Last Stand, they huddle together in this little safe space and rage against reality, oblivious to the changes manifesting themselves around them.

    Probably doesn't do much for the overall forum's intellectual credibility, but at least it keeps them corralled in the one place I suppose.

    Move on and embrace the changes. That mantra has served the species well for millenia.

    The bitter little racist who likes calling everyone else a racist ought to be on your ignore list (he's on mine), but he's occasional comedy gold
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    It keeps going because people keep responding. Maybe show some restraint.

    What your grandfather got up to in the war, no matter how shameful, is no concern of ours.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!
