Ireland Front Of The Queue

by | Nov 14, 2018

The Republic of Ireland has recently struck a deal with France to fast-track its commercial drivers crossing the Channel from Dover to Calais, which could force British truckers to face long queues lasting for hours.

The agreement was made between Ireland’s Foreign Minister Simon Coveney and his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian.

The two ministers discussed how border control would be able to differentiate Irish trucks from British trucks, enabling the Irish to jump the queue.

Under the right circumstances Irish trucks will not need to be inspected, whereas UK trucks may need to be checked.

The deal has angered the UK, with some blasting the EU for an apparent attempt to punish and humiliate Britain over Brexit.
