If he maintains this stance we will reroute away from Calais. Plenty more ports to sail to. Bilbao, Rotterdam for example. Lots of Polish and Spanish drivers stranded. They have to drive all the way through France to get to their home. Bugger Calais. It will suffer more than Dover.

We buy twice as much from EU as we sell to them so WTO rules are fine as it means the Treasury receives twice as much in tariffs from EU companies as we pay. It should also be feasible for the UK govt to distribute this windfall to UK citizens.

Ridiculous comment. Even the remain-leaning BBC moderators will surely remove this comment.
I know it's 'off topic' but that hasn't stopped many undemocratic bad-losers mentioning it:

The reason that the new strain of Covid-19 has only been found in the UK is because we have the best DNA research facitities in Europe

The EU is now only finding it over there because we told them how to look for it!

The EU are trying to make sure no country even dares to try to leave them! The UK did not sign up to the EU. We signed up to the Common Market years back, worked well for all involved, but France and Germany were not happy with the lack of their control so the EEC was evolved , then the EU..basically the United Country`s of Europe but they never produce audited accounts. They just want our Money!

#Richard.."Look how organised Dover is"...The border closure has lasted less than 48 hours so all we've seen is how Dover copes with a minor interruption to traffic flow.
If the UK doesn't agree to a deal the disruption will be permanent & the UK will really find out what a no deal WTO exit means.
The Dover/Calais connection is essential for trade,that Raab bloke didn't even know this.

With regard to the new variant, don't forget our brilliant scientists identified it, but doesn't mean it generated here - could just have easily come across the channel, particularly as it was 'found' in Kent and not, say, Cumbria or Cornwall. I strongly suspect that it will be 'identified' all across Europe in the not too distant future. Removed

Probably maybe could of been from France who knows, but for sure BBC would never highlight it, the article writers too busy saying UK a mess and EUdoing very well in trade negotiations, no way UK socialist driven media will say anything negative about EU and in particular France, no condemnation of their foreign policies, or their diversity program, France it would appear would fail BBC PC control
