What now for the EU ?

Also Macron has got to root for his French fisherfolk (and farmers) like his political career depends on it.

Which it does.

Agreed, so I suspect an element of theatre for domestic consumption. His best bet is actually to sign up for Canada+ and then strike up a separate deal with us over fishing (the French won't turn a hair about ignoring any inconvenient EU rulings that get in the way)...

So no source for this Skid? The fervently anti-Brexit Irish Times has instead chosen to comment upon Irish hauliers being up the Swanee on the UK landbridge because, irrespective of what the French say about their access to Calais, they will not get prioritised at Dover.


I wouldn't worry, the way Johnson is handling things it's only a matter of time before i'll get to quote from the fervently anti brexit Daily Mail. Johnson has already been compared in the media, to Cromwell, another lord protector threatening Christmas.

Still, enjoy Lorry park Kent, The smell of Portaloos, you can pretend you're at a festival. (a day or a period of celebration)

Or for the more historically minded among you, it'll be like the preparations for Overlord and needing a special pass to get anywhere near Dover.

Whatever happened to the Oven ready deal, no downside, only a considerable upside?

Still chin up.

You missed out the mass outbreaks of dogging near the channel ports caused by Brexit

Another pint of bitter salty tears? Looks like you've finished your last one.
 
We don't overnight in Calais. Straight off train about 2359 local and head on down the A26 as far as Reims. Usually kip in a motorway aire until about 0600, clean teeth, coffee and a croissant on the hoof and down in Provence by teatime!

suppose it's where you start your journey , I am travelling 12 hours until we get to Dover, dangerous to carry on ,

Yes, that's fair enough.

So you basically, haven't a scooby about public opinion and seem to see everything through the lenses of higher echelons of power, making all the decisions...... Boris could deliver 'no deal' and we still wouldn't be rejoining after all the effort to get out.
It's hard to have a scooby on public opinion when you don't leave the confines of the Academy, they don't allow just anybody at Sandhurst so BL will hardly mix with the general public.

You sure about that? :)

No desire for independence in Wales apart from a couple of villages in Gog land. If anything, drippy Drakeford's actions since becoming AM have increased appetite down here for Westminster to claw back powers from Cardiff Bay - M4 Relief Road being a good example.

Of course you do Colonel. Your constant whining since the referendum result was announced says that you are tickled pink by it all.
Wasn't he just 'joking'?

Whatever happened to the Ed Stone, Labour's 10 commandments seemed to have vanished
 
I think Macron has looked at his cards and decided that France won't get enough out of any trade deal to make any future economic ties to the UK worthwhile
This isn’t just about trade in the short term it’s about Kudos. France has not been able to bring Britain to heel. France has lost face. It really is down to Macron if he wants to shoot himself in the foot.
