1,500 lorries stuck in Kent as UK talks to France - BBC News

More than 1,500 lorries are stuck in Kent waiting to leave the UK as politicians thrash out a plan to reopen France’s border to trade and travel.

France shut its UK border for 48 hours on Sunday amid fears of a new coronavirus variant. More than 50 countries have now banned UK arrivals.

Home Secretary Priti Patel said 650 lorries are stacked up on the M20, with a further 873 at a lorry park.

The UK’s top scientist has warned the new variant is “everywhere”.

Sir Patrick Vallance added that further restrictions are likely to be needed in more areas of England.

In England, 17 million people are under tier four rules, the toughest level, where people are being told to stay at home and not leave the area. Some parts of England, as well as Wales, have asked people who travel from tier four areas to self-isolate.

  1. I've not long moved from Dover and have experienced this twice in a year, its horrendous and I do feel for the lorry drivers, the impact this has on the local area is madness, the back roads all get congested and you simply cannot move, I lost my rag the last time as it was a 40 minute journey back to Dover that took me 3hrs and I'll admit at the time I did take it out on the drivers. There was no police, highways or council presence to assist people. It took about 48hrs to clear the backlog. Most of these guys and girls aren't going to get back till the end of this month. We need to start seriously holding Governments to account for their actions or inactions.

  2. Today (23rd Dec) there are reportedly 3,800 trucks parked on Manson airport with the rest parked up on the motorways. I have had a note on LinkedIn from inside Manson.
    For 3,800 truck drivers from all European nations there are just FOUR, yes four, overflowing portaloos!! There are no washing facilities like showers etc, and no interpreters have been provided for the thousands of 'out of town' drivers.
    Kind hearted local people are arriving at the gates with gifts of fresh food and drink for the drivers, only to be turned away by the security guards.
    This is deplorable and despicable! This is not a truck park, it's a prison camp!!!
    PLEASE do your best for these drivers by highlighting their predicament to the U.K. media and local newspapers.
    I live in The Netherlands and feel helpless in this.

  3. It's one authoritarian government dealing with another similar. Whatever happened to human rights and freedom? Evolving backward into the dark ages and stone age? LOL.

  4. Are you all sick of this bollox yet? The lies, the massaging of stats, all for their globalist Great Reset. They are so reprehensible they have to pretend they are doing it cos they care.

  5. 1. Google wormhole.
    2. Government boss Boris Johnson.
    3. Government address 10 downing Street London.
    4. Write a letter to government saying there should be time travel police. When time machines are invented.

  6. Why not deploy the AI driver trucks? Combined with 100% 5G coverage along the highway for real time navigation, and local provincial government must prohibit private cars from entering the highway. No crashes, no accidents, no movement of people but emergency supplies were delivered. Tested for one month on the national highway between Wuhan and Guangzhou, when Wuhan had the strictly lockdown. The key is keep the private cars off the highway. Then it's safe for the AI driver trucks.

  7. Lol, isn't this what you brexiteers wanted, no longer to be in the EU. Here's the preview of what you voted, to leave the EU. So buckle up and enjoy your stupidity!

  9. Coronavirus No Longer Considered High Consequence Infectious In the UK

    Coronavirus No Longer Considered High Consequence Infectious In the UK

    Coronavirus No Longer Considered High Consequence Infectious In the UK

    Please read this damning revelation on the actual status of the threat of COVID-19:

    As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious diseases (HCID) in the UK.

    The 4 nations public health HCID group made an interim recommendation in January 2020 to classify COVID-19 as an HCID. This was based on consideration of the UK HCID criteria about the virus and the disease with information available during the early stages of the outbreak.

    Now that more is known about COVID-19, the public health bodies in the UK have reviewed the most up to date information about COVID-19 against the UK HCID criteria.

    They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall), and there is now greater clinical awareness and a specific and sensitive laboratory test, the availability of which continues to increase.

    The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) is also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.
