    what a pity those who follow politics do not behave as they would when following football. I can imagine May meeting the EU leaders in Brussels with the Brexit fans gathered in the plaza outside swilling beer and singing German bombers. That would put some psychological pressure on those Brussel Sprouts.

    Leavers talked about chaos at the border with long waits for customs checking trucks. The government announces that there will be no check. All the company has to do is file a short form online 2 hours before at the latest and the trucks are waved through. Easy peasy. This talk of chaos is scaremongering. When you think about it, customs could easily have an inspector on board ferries and/or at the departure port.

    Most if not all of the practicalities of borders are easily solved with technology, paper trails, good systems and common sense.

    I think there is an issue with customs at the departure port and onboard ferries as I believe, and I maybe wrong here, but custom checks need (by law) to be carried out in the country of arrival. So they could, in theory, be done on the ferry, but only in UK waters which isn’t that far out.

    Between Parliament, bilateral ageements and ships captains anything can be done, but no matter. When the UK customs officers asks the truck driver on the ferry if he objects to them checking his load, he can say No but then he knows what will await him on arrival at the port.

    Didn’t UK immigration conduct checks in Calais to prevent the jungle people ?

    We are in a muddle aren’t we. I assume this post is for the schoolgirl topic and not the Brexit one. But hey, who cares about details right.
