This chaos illustrates why both sides are very keen to strike a deal.

And by both sides I mean France and Germany.

On the bit about France and Germany controlling the EU, given that they are the two biggest net contributors post Brexit and the otehr countries have to rely on that, do you not think they exert a decent bit of control?

Nonsense. The virus has mutated, as all viruses do. Do you think it has only mutated in the UK for some reason? The difference is that here in the UK our scientists have done some research and discovered that they THINK it transmits more easily.

But I do blame Matt Hancock for saying the virus is out of control. A ridiculous thing to say and entirely predictable to cause panic among some.

No they didn't, the existing virus (like all others) merely mutated. The crises are better out in the open than hidden away. Also, we didn't blame China in the first instance so to blame anyone for anything now achieve nothing worthwhile.

Our government has done no such thing. What total garbage you are spouting. This disease originally came out of China and this particular variation is already in several other countries too but their scientists were not good enough or honest enough to declare it. Also, it would seem that there is a distinct possibility that the variant started in the U.S.A. according to other headlines.

As this latest strain seems to be rife in Kent I think it is no coincidence that Kent is the gateway to Europe regarding ports and the Euro Tunnel. What does that tell us? That it most likely arrived here from Europe. Possibly even France!

I don’t think UK caused a disease, pretty sure it was China. Also we to want to be protected. Due to half a century of EU membership the prevention of flow of goods is akin to a siege. I don’t disagree with the remark of incompetence.

"Your incompetent government caused a disease crisis"
Please don't spread inaccurate and fake information regarding the virus. The UK DID NOT cause a 'Disease Crisis'. it's a virus, it mutates. We saw new strains in the summer from Spain, no one started blaming the Spanish.

Of course, don't let actual science and facts get in the way of your prejudice!

I guess you are advocating starvation
Starvation! You remoaners are idiots. Eat English apples and pears not foreign grown oranges. Eat produce grown in this country and stop being so picky. Turnips, Swede and Parsnips are grown in abundance but picky people won't eat them. In Cornwall our mild climate means with poly tunnels we can grow anything. We make our own cheeses, wine, pate and have fish a plenty. Buy British. Removed

Fact: Britain does not have the capacity to grow enough to feed the population of the country. It has nothing to do with people being picky, or substituting one product for another.

Or are you proposing a return to rationing and "digging for victory", given how much you Brextremists love harping on about World War II?

It's certainly bad for trust. Why should anyone trust the French who unilaterally closed the border and caused the chaos? With what justification, considering that the new Covid strain is already spreading in the EU? There's another agenda at work ...something to do with trade talks, methinks.
Before the moderator thinks of deleting, these are the words of former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan: “The French will always betray you in the end.”
Go on, delete, you enemies of free speech.

‘You can’t trust British products’ because France unilaterally closed their border in response to a virus strain that is almost certainly in France but which they don’t have the capability to detect. I’m not sure that follows.

I agree that it was caused by a virus which originated in the UK which in many ways mirrors Brexit. But would have to point out that France is just one of the many countries of Europe, and elsewhere, who have done so. It’s just that France is the closest to us and as so much trade goes through Dover the resulting problems are far more obvious. This is why Brexit is such a bad idea.
COVID did not originate in the UK. How could you say that? Maybe you are a Russian bot. Or an idiot. Or both. Removed
