Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The UK has spent more than £100m to charter ferries to ease “severe congestion” at Dover in the event of a no-deal Brexit, as the government ramps up its multi-billion contingency plans.

Presumably this would be a recurring cost; not just a one-off?
They behave as if hard Brexit were the Biafra war.

<<The French operator Brittany Ferries, the Danish company DFDS and the UK’s Seaborne Freight would step in to ease pressure on Dover in the event of no deal, allowing almost 4,000 more lorries a week to come and go.>>
Two EU countries?

This doesn't even make sense?! What exactly are they worried about? The EU no longer delivering? If so - what do they need more ferry crossings for?!

Well, the refugees hanging out in France will be pleased.
