Port of Dover ...

It was btw not my idea to bring up the topic today, the UK Press and social media is full of the story. The French will not continue to uphold Le Touquet treaty and border checks in France unless we pas them large sums to do it.

The costs of the infrastruture and the land and all the upkeep and staffing at Calais, both ferry and tunnel, are massive. The Hôtel we always stop at overnight, and many others, are 50% occupied by CRS police from all over France (sort of equivalent of SAS- armed to the teeth and trained to shoot) - and this for several years.
Amazing they did it for free so far!
After all, it's not that they desperately want to keep those heading for GB in their country

The more info I get, the more obvious it gets how GB profited (utilised?) from their EU partners.
