Oh dear, I've heard differently: "Jean-Marc Puissesseau made an impassioned plea to put plans in place immediately to avert congestion in Calais & Dover where bosses have already warned of permanent 20-mile tailbacks." Either Puissesseau is taking the piss or U R #StopBrexit

The only reason their could be a problem is if the French customs are coerced by Macron to create one.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Political agitators ? We see through you.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Just believe, just believe really really hard. Everything will be fine if you just believe!!
 
So all those conversions of Kent motorways and changing Manston into a huge lorry park are pure fantasy. #BrexitReality

All,our ex PMs , our politicians and the MSM need a strict dressing down ,they are responsible for the febrile atmosphere.

Key quote - "There are certain individuals in the UK who are whipping up this catastrophism for their own reasons" - Jean-Marc Puissesseau, president of Port Boulogne Calais

Quick question: our foreign secretary knows where Dover is?

Most of the haulage companies are continental firms any chaos will,affect them more than us.

Maybe we should just stop buying goods from Europe for the rest of the year ( I don’t like being held over a barrel - so let’s seek alternatives )

Steve can you ask @BorisJohnson why he is still paying taxpayers money to a Lawyer initially employed by T. May To fight against @RobinTilbrook Court Case funded by the People. May lied & we left EU 29.3.19 We have been waiting 6 months for a court date? Would appreciate update?
 
Funny

This has not been reported by BBC news or Sky

Editorial bias at work yet again
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Ha ha the French won't want to lose our trade. Scaremongering again that doesnt wash any more. We are more savvy, more robust & we will fight for our freedom We are British after all. Please Mr Macron don't underestimate us

Because lorries without the necessary paperwork won’t be allowed to board ferries. So, they’ll be stacked on the M20. Do you know where that is?
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
They don’t want mayhem (interesting word ‘MAYhem...🤔), they don’t want lorries packed with perishable goods rotting.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
The only issue will be when the French go on strike...again
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Well said Steve. This is more negative shite to try and scare people off of brexit
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Really? Well, that’s good news. Of course, there may not be too much to carry what with the likely tariffs etc. But you’ll be fine, I’m sure ... 😂😂😂
 
I suppose the Chief of Calais is either:

- a bot,
- a liar,
- ill-informed,
- funded by Russian's and/or
- racist against the French

Or perhaps, he's an expert in his field who is offering an objective view. A view, which if wrong, would likely be detrimental for his career.

Isn’t the second time he’s been talking nonsense?

Why is Boris’ Govt. tendering for air freight services then? telegraph.co.uk/politics/2019/…
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
I think he was referring to brexit when he called it bullshit, which it is.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
We already knew this - doesn't stop the Remoaner hysterics though.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Baker you knob have you ever been in a truck to Dover or calais and been stuck there for hours trying to get across dicks like you have no fucking clue
 
 
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
The usual plan of fear which isn’t working
 
Even if they have UK fish in them? Best tell Macron...he's not up to speed on this!
 
 
 
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
I'm sure he's perfectly prepared. We, on the other hand, are not.
 
 
 
If there v us ever a problem at Calais GO will simply deploy to alternative ports, so not really in their interests.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
It’s called lobbying by the port chief because he’s worried about losing trade to Rotterdam, it’s not policy. Keep up, Wet-boy Steve.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
To repeat: it’s not the French (or the Germans or the Dutch, etc), it’s us. Look even at The Excess: express.co.uk/news/world/947… But then again, we have no plan and we will perhaps have no government soon..?
 
Smart quip for a Frenchman.

🇪🇺 🇬🇧 🇮🇪 How's your new job with blow Jo Steve? The torygraph another paper only fit to wipe.....
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
The only trouble will be caused by the people on this side. Anything to make a point.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Can you get a dumber MP than this guy? The French are fine. They have their act together. Were the ones with the M20 lorry queue and Manston Airport back up. Were the ones who are going to cock this one up, not the French.
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
Well he would say that, he is the guy in charge of the Port. I'd rather listen to experts like, Lammy, Grieve, O'Brien et al

USA lost China as a trade partner. Need UK to fill the gap.
 
 
Project Fear, or as the French would say "C'est la bullsh*t".

Makes the EU rules does he?

Stop scaremongering and read the article.
 
In reply to @cathyby
@cathyby now we just need Shamus and Shaun on either side of the Irish border to come up with similar solutions.
 
Dover Calais traffic jams / delays totally rubbish says Europe. Just fake news/propaganda!
Pls RT
 
In reply to @SteveBakerHW
It's definitely "le bullshit" and therefore "C'est du bullshit!"
