Polish trucking portal says, that today's operation stack was caused deliberately - Britons want to show to the EU how it will look if EU does not give them a deal: 40ton.net/operacja-stack… 40ton.net/operacja-stack…
If true, then it is indeed like negotiating with someone, who threatens you with shooting himself in the foot
(also, I saw several comments from drivers and company owners saying that if it's true, it's the last straw for them and they are not intending to take freights into UK anymore, as they have 30 other countries to drive to). From a friend

Potatoes cross border !: quote “We are going on a fishing trip to Norway, driving through Finland, and bringing some food with us, but just found out that potatoes need a special permit to bring into the country. Are Finnish potatoes from supermarkets allowed in Norway”?
Answer : “Nope. Potatoes are not allowed across the Norwegian border without them being accompanied with a health certificate (you will need to send the potates to be tested and quite frankly it's just easier and extremely much cheaper to buy potates in Norway)”
Be careful when transporting food cross border when we will no longer adhere to the same regulations as the EU . Chances are it’ll be binned .. at the customs border !

Switzerland,a country accustomed to carrying out customs checks on all goods has an error rate of around 20%- anything from incorrect weight to the stated value of the goods which originate from the invoice sent to the agent from the importer/exporter- 1/
This results in the truck being stuck at customs whilst the agent has to communicate with the importer / exporter to correct the invoice . What happens if it’s 5pm and the customer has gone home for the night ? Yup - the truck isn’t moving . 2
You can have as many 24 hour customs desks as you like in Dover but how many small business will have 24 hour offices ? I bet it’s not many ! That means any incorrect declaration won’t be corrected until the following day 3

I met a child refugee 2 weeks ago @mrjamesob -in fact he was underneath my van for 50miles - when I heard the banging I pulled over and a young lad was standing there shivering and scared 1.
I reached out and he went to run off - I reassured him that he was safe and we got talking
He told me he was 18 - I suspect he was younger , I asked where he was from ( darfour) - and when I asked about this family : his response “ they are dead “ - I only have friends in the U.K.
