I thought that the idea of the EU Single Market, Customs Area and Schengen Area meant that there shouldn't be border controls between countries that belong. Or were you just stopped on a random whim?

I dont recommend to mess with French Douanes. They have more rights on the road than any other institution like Gendarmerie, Police Nationale ou Police Municipale. Discussion is always the best way to go with those officers imho. As you suspect Mike its training time for those people!

There isn’t a border control but there is a Peage at the border, conveniently with no ‘30’ lane, so trucks have to stop. Easy then for the customs officials to ‘pull anyone of interest..... It was random, I suspect, Mike, and the only comment I got was ‘Morgan? they make racing cars?’

Fortunately it was dark so the fact that the CMRs didn’t relate to the specific journey wasn’t noticed! As said before, they aren’t designed for moving racing cars around Europe and back to UK.....

While at Britney’s Pompey check in, whenever it was I left the UK, I picked up the glossy HMGov glossy 24page A4 booklet ‘No-deal guidance for hauliers’. This was available in at least 10 different languages!

So I’ve read it twice. Am I any the wiser? Absolutely not.....

Good news for our travelling caravanserai of racers - UK departure delayed once again, it's now outside the racing season so at least we know where we are.

Welcome home, boys!

You mean I’m not stuck on the Algarve for the winter? I was counting on it all going apeshit this week!

That’s a bummer....

There are now more and more concerned citizens in Europe clamoring for a new referendum...

- by the European Electorate on the latest acceptable extension date by which Brexit has to be completed

3 choices offered on the voting slip

31st January 2020
1st of February
2nd of February

If no fully ratified deal by 3rd of February 2020 the Tunnel is to be sealed and flooded unilaterally.

joke aside,
seriously
My German friends have mostly now come to round to the fact that Brexit is inevitable and just needs to be gotten over with as pragmatic as possible.

Indeed, even Mrs Merkle thinks Britain will be better off out of the EU... Go figure as they say.

I would be interested to see where she says that, Peter.

What I do know is that she has stated that she expects the UK to become a competitor to EU countries. She also believes that the UK will do so by watering down employment and safety at work regulations, and reducing taxation.

I have always believed that many Brexiteer politicians and their supporters are driven by the thought that they will profit massively by making the UK a tax haven after we leave the EU. It is not surprising that the principle financial backers for the various leave campaigns and those MPs are nearly all, if not all, are all from the world of finance, whether that be certain bankers, hedge fund managers/owners and/or assorted financiers.
