I don't disagree about MP's being a spineless disgrace, but 'like many probably most' is around 10% . . . . according to recent surveys/polls. even the thickest brexiters are slowly beginning to realize its the politicians and establishment in their own country that have been screwing them for decades and not the EU, which has done more to help and protect than anything or anyone else.

Parliament is a complete disgrace, the majority of MP's are what they have always been, self-seeking, hypocrites.

May they rot in hell.

Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make you more clever. It simply makes you different to them. As to your assertion, yes quite right, our politicians got us into this in 1972.

Sensible people took the opportunity to remove us from the yolk, but too many self interested politicians decided no. There is still a chance though.

Russia, Trump, !

I still see Obama sitting next to Cameron on national TV and threatening the UK with the most dire consequences if we dared to vote leave. One of the most disgraceful things any British PM has ever done and the most insulting thing a US President could have done.

Just how black is your kettle?

I would think it will get worse as more people will be going on holiday , because there is no hard shoulder there is no way of any breakdown trucks or police getting through in the event of a major crash. The only way that I can see is that they would have to wait until the traffic ahead of the "obstruction" had cleared and drive back to it.
I can see this causing insurmountable problems with local "rat runs" being used by lots of vehicles including HGVs !!!

Actually I was thinking of the French work to rule stuff. If that reduces the M2 won't be an issue.

I’m wondering how much of the M20 congestion could be just down to Operation Brock? It happened with Stack, where trucks were held away from Dover to ‘ease congestion’ at the port. I only had to use it once, thankfully, but when you got to the port, it was empty, and ferries we’re leaving half loaded because the trucks were being held.....

I think tourist traffic, that will include Peter, will have far less of a problem. I’m already contemplating using the Portsmouth Caen crossing for Spa. It’s only 10 miles more, but double ferry cost..... Could be worth it- especially with the news just now that the 3rd attempt at PMs deal has failed!

I heard Ken Bruce this morning playing the Average White Band song 'Let's Go Round Again' and he quipped something about Parliament. Very apt I thought.

And now if you need to go from lets say Cambridge to south using the road to Dover but need to stop before how do you manage not to get caught in trafic jams? Detour?

I may have misunderstood the question, but to get to Portsmouth, for instance, the best route is to go round the west side of London on M25. That way, you just get all the everyday Heathrow chaos, plus similar at other junctions which bring a lot of traffic on.....

There are two routes to Dover from the M25. Operation Brock is on the M20 which most trucks use, but for me, if I’m approaching from the North, the best route is along the A2/M2. Problem is, the authorities do all in their power to stop trucks using it. Even to the extent, if they get to the port, of making them drive all the way along the M20 to join the back of the queue, when Stack was in place. I can’t see any written instructions on A2 use regarding Brock......

Lucky they’re not needed yet, then......

We return to UK Friday, will report back how we get on.
Lunchtime Friday - French Douane playing silly b's on the A16 Belgian > French border !
Down to 1 lane then off at a junction, past a crowd of about 20 uniformed types, round the roundabout and back on Autoroute, tailback of about 45 minutes.
Road into port completely empty, no queues at passport controls or check-in at all. Boats running on time.
The M20 Op Brock is about 12+ miles of 50 limit in the contraflow - followed by many more miles of 50 right up to the M26 junction, they're doing the roadworks for 'smart' motorway. Timing for this is appalling. Luckily I'm not due back there until Summer Classic.
