More intelligent comment from remainers, clinking their glasses at this news.

Sad & pathetic when a minority such as remainers would rather things go wrong than the UK prosper because they didn't get their way.

Really this should have been sorted out earlier, sadly the EU & silly rules of when trade talks could start didn't help. Plus needless delay of actually enacting the will of the people..

We don’t have the raw materials in the UK - we can import raw material & recreate a whole infrastructure including education & training or we can import raw materials & products inc parts via ports. Pre Brexit we did the latter & exported finished products, both started going down pre Covid. Company daughter works for had been moving production to UK (weaker employment law) reverted back to EU.

My son can give my daughter a fiver to fetch the water and my wife a fiver for dinner, still no cost to the family but all employed. If I give my neighbour a fiver for washing the car it has cost the family a fiver and no one in my family has benefited. Simple isnt it?

I wish people would get it into their head that the WTO does not set tariffs. The WTO specifies MAXIMUM tariffs.

Only the English part of the U.K. remember wee Nicola tried to stay out of it , with deal the same as the Six Counties of Ireland have got , United Ireland seems to be closer , then you remember that CHURCHILL tried to give the same six to Ireland and they said no , now Boris has more or less done it by the back door .

Is that all you've got? Get over it? No chance. All you have to offer is division, poverty and slavery. And all to make a few people richer than they already are.

More intelligent comment from remainers, clinking their glasses at this news.

Sad & pathetic when a minority such as remainers would rather things go wrong than the UK prosper because they didn't get their way.

Really this should have been sorted out earlier, sadly the EU & silly rules of when trade talks could start didn't help. Plus needless delay of actually enacting the will of the people..

Brexit is the gift that can’t stop giving. Be wonderful to see the Leave lunacy reaching its logical conclusion with paralysis in Dover.
Good!
The worse Johnson’s Brexit catastrophe the sooner we rejoin the marvellous European Union.
Go for it, Johnson. Bless.

True 50% increase in trade traffic, ask Calais, they can't cope, 10 mile queues into the port. Still, they'll sort it no doubt, the congestion in Antwerp and Rotterdam last year didn't hit the front pages of the BBC either, which is odd as the reasons given included, and I quote -

"shortage of staff, hick-up in IT-systems, full stacks, and lower than expected productivity." All that in the EU!

Raab seems to misunderstand most things, especially about Brexit. And when he put his self forward as leader of the Tory Party his credentials were "I'm a detail man". Most probably meant the detail in doing up his flies and knotting his tye without a crease.

EU: okay we’re happy to do a deal but there has to be a level playing field.
Brexiteers: No, we want our sovereignty and it’s oor fish so hands off. No deal.

US: okay we’re happy to do a deal but you have to give us everything we ask for because you’re in a ridiculously weak position and beggars can’t be choosers.
Also Brexiteers: Yes master, of course it’s a deal.

If ignorance was bliss, you'd be like a pig in s*** - The CIty of London are still trading in the EU, deal or no deal - we held the cards there ;-) Then the only reason the UK didn't' walk away from the trade in goods? Try

There'll be problems. There'll be delays. The vaccine will be flown in by the military. Fish will have a Navy escort. Janine and Rosco will have to join the long queue at the airport. Prices will rise. Choice will diminish. Options will reduce.

And all the time we have to listen to Tory pillocks telling us there'll be opportunities, that we'll prosper mightily but there might be bumps in the road

People are about to find out how important the road transport industry is.

This is my industry and I abhor Brexit. It is costing me personally, not expecting any empathy from Leavers, they don't have mine either.

Most fair-minded people are sick to the back teeth of this. EU ref was a bad call with a surprise result, government really haven't known what to do with it, I have a suggestion!

No, people are finding out how stupid the RHA and CBI were in not preparing but faffing around trying to reverse the vote. However, now they are, had they done so earlier we might not have the 50% increase in traffic that is blocking Calais, causing 10 mile tail backs that the BBC doesn't appear to have reported on.

What hardship? They are experiencing a 50% increase in traffic, and like Calais have queues, what is not to be liked about a 50% increase? Oh, yes, I forgot, rejoiners said no one would trade with us so certainly don't like it. ;-)

That was Domonic Raab.

I am truly mystified why he kept being given cabinet posts. He's failed in a spectacular way in every single post he's been given. At least the security committee blew him off :-)
