Lorry drivers are avoiding the UK anyway due to Brexit red tape. The problem will solve itself.

Makes sense as the UK really doesn't want the disease ridden unvaccinated EU exporting their virus mutations to these shores.

"There will soon be massive shortages of goods in the shops due to (brexit), not really but due to stuck container ship in the suez canel, am sure brexit will be the cause according to remainers".

Considering the Container ship only got stuck a few days ago your assertion that this has caused empty shelves in the UK is typical brexiteer BS/lies.

Given most of the delayed goods are not destined for the UK anyway it would presumably affect the EU more than the UK. But Brexiteers don't seem capable of simple logic based on facts.

Soon does not mean that it has caused now. But if the ship is stuck for more than a week it will cause shortages, not of food but of many other items.

Aw c'mon. It's not difficult for the logistics company responsible for transporting the load to have a suitably configured tractor unit pick the trailer up at the destination port. Also there shouldn't be a shortage of British drivers in Britain as they won't be scattered all over the continent, and vice versa. Some of them might even get home to see their families, too.

Why is the UK paying for these tests ?

Doesn't the EU care about sending Covid to the UK as much as it does vaccines ?

"135,000 people who have died from Coronavirus"

135k have NOT died from covid. Dying by being hit by a bus, having a heart attack, a stroke, existing terminal illness like cancer or old age but within 28 days of a covid test is NOT a death FROM covid.

Deaths FROM covide seriously overstated.

148k deaths with CV on the death certificate. If Covid warrants a mention on your death certificate then it’s highly likely it was the Elephant that broke the Camel’s back.

BTW I suspect the number of people hit by a bus is over stated.
