    Switzerland is not part of the EU neither of the 2nd level EEA only third level EFTA which means there are some border checks on lorries also note it's 30 - 60 minutes when these go red Dover Calais goes amber at 2 hours

            No problems here, plenty of fresh fruit and veg, no shortages at all, even stacks of toilet paper in the shops...
            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.

              The whiff of desperation..

              But France & Germany are, so is Poland. They all were however red.

              When I looked Dover was amber but no waiting time displayed.

                If you had any geographical knowledge (I know gammons don't have it) you would see they were mostly with the Borders between FR and CH and DE and CH

                If you zoom in on Dover you can see there is first a waiting time at Ashford at the Farage Lorry Park of 4 hours and then up to 3 hours in Dover for the ferry
                As for Poland, Belarus is still not in the EU

                  No need to worry about shortages anymore, apparently the UK will just let lorries come in without checks:

                  HMRC chief: loosening of customs checks on trucks to cost UK GBP800m in 2021 - Trans.INFO

                  Bit of a kick in the teeth in regards to tax charges, but they can tax contractors more to make it even

                    However, Harra also said that the UK will able to obtain £300m in extra VAT as HMRC can “tighten up on the payment of the VAT by online marketplaces, for example like eBay and Amazon.”

                    so £500M?

                    The £800m being an estimate?

                    So far just around 5% of the trucks have been held back due to issues with paperwork or covid tests.

                      Strange the blobs are on French / German border. Maybe Switzerland invaded them?


                      The three hours is an end to end, no waiting time.
