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

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

    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.

    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."

    If only it was possible to predict this!

    Can't blame the French though - they are getting ready to prevent scores of desperate British residents trying to hide in EU Humanitarian Aid lorries in order to escape post-Brexit collapse.

    Shall we have a trial of sinking French fishing boats in our seas?

    I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

    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.
