Mate of mine in Dover just told me the Port and town are gridlocked. P&O are running ferries on Christmas Day (never known that before so someone must have seriously greased some palms), one of those big ships can carry about 180 lorries or so, and the tunnel is back in operation. Therefore, with 2,000 of them, the backlog shouldn't take too long to clear.

This assumes no further lorries continue to pile in of course. Which they will. So, I reckon it'll be a few days yet.

Does that mean we can now officially tell Macron to [email protected]@k off? 

Probably.

I reckon when the details come out of the final stages it will be as predicted months (years) ago ie, Merkel, told by German industry to sort it, spoke to Von Der Leyen and told her to sort it, then her and Boris did so, over the heads of Barnier and Macron.

I have just spoken to a mate of mine in Watford who runs a high end car servicing operation and he reckons you're talking bollocks 🙂

I'm not sure exactly what was happening when I was at Manston yesterday in terms of anyone leaving but apart from a few lorries in laybys during the day the traffic was no problem at all.

Drakeford also now showing his true colours, an out and out Welsh Nationalist hiding behind the Welsh Labour Party 

Every time I see him spouting his usual drivel & looking like he's just crawled in after a heavy night's drinking I feel ashamed to be Welsh 😪

Cheers,

Just opened a lovely bottle of Chapel Down Bacchus wine to celebrate the deal being done. One of the few good things to come out of Kent! lol...

Will go lovely with British Mussels and white wine sauce, and 30 year old starter toasted sour dough, for my tea tonight!

Who actually needs the EU anyway.

I might hide for a moment, bullets are coming strong over here. 😉

Sorry you feel you need to hide. The bullets are coming from a tiny minority and I am afraid the most vocal members of the forum, probably your typical school yard bully in there time. I do feel sorry for our European friends and members of this forum the abuse they have to read and digest. Some more positive news today with a Brexit deal. Me for one can not wait to travel and see our friends in the EU and see and experience some amazing cultures. The usually suspects on this thread will be will have there say they always do.

Get over yourself or did you miss his "wink"!  We have also made it perfectly clear that any ire is directed at the politicians.

Anyhow, seasons greetings.

The general dislike of the EU elite politicians id suspect is shared by many within the EU who’s cultural identity has been fully eroded by this experiment

The deal takes out a great chunk - if not a fatal chunk - out of SNP's incessant whining about how Brexit would ruin Scottish industry, farming and foodstuffs.

what will they rant about now?

They will rant about BoJo giving away too much Scottish fish to the EU

Actually they can't rant about that as the Scots nolw have access to more fish and what BoJo has actually done is given the Scots more fish!  Will be interesting to see how Sturgeon spins that one but in reality it has already started as who knew but the entire Scottish economy was actually based on the seed potato and that bastard BoJo has not secured a deal for that...  What a muppet eh?

Hmm. Yes. I am aware of that. It was a joke about the illogicality of leaving the UK to go under the yolk of the EU.

Apparently, BJ's 'deal' is a total betrayal of the Scottish fishing industry - that's the industry that will be protected under the new Fisheries Bill (now an Act) that the SNP voted against last month and the industry that they were fully prepared to (and had behind the scenes already offered to) hand back to the EU upon Scotland being admitted as an independent European country. 😠

Their hypocrisy knows no bounds!

Drakeford looks, sounds and acts like a reject from Lord of the Rings puppet collection
