    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.

          Totally wrong analogy - vetran isn’t taking a fraction of hardship brave Japanese soldier endured, plus the soldier just did not know the war was over, no such excuse for vetran

            The EU knows better try having a look. What they have however done is implement harsher rules on us despite us having fewer infections per head than Belgium etc.

              Belgium is part of EU and UK is a third country, do try to keep up, that's what you wanted after all.

                I am not complaining you saddos are. When being mates is more important than logic in a pandemic most people would consider that a bit sad.

                  Logic is that club members get more favourable to them rules than to those outside of the club (for membership of which they pay).

                    There aren't any queues at all at most borders within the EU.

                      Interesting map apparently the red dots show its over an hour delay but lots seem to have longer end to end times but show Amber. Doesn't present the data very well. However it does claim to show queues none of which are reported in Dover. There is a 2km queue to Calais and a 1km queue at Harwich (this wasn't unusual 30 years ago), 1km to Folkestone. That however could be due to

                      Dover to Calais (amber) is 3 hours. Calais to Dover (One assumes the delay is in Calais?) is showing 15 hours (usually 7 hours strange its always been < 3 hours for me do the trucks sit in a different time zone on the ferry?).

                      There are no waiting times shown at Dover at

                      So no queues leaving Dover but queues getting to Calais, whose fault is that?

                      Did France, Switzerland and Germany Brexit because they all have > 1hr waiting time on their borders?
