Watch out for breakdowns beginning to be impossible to fix for all types of vehicle road going, construction etc. A parts manufacturer of German origin cannot get across the Brexit Red Tape Line. They've asked for help.

Anybody having lingering doubts about EU hauliers/drivers staying away and trade dropping off a cliff/shortages (unless UK finds needed infrastructure, modern fully interfaced IT, 5000 customs officers, 50,000 *experienced* customs agents in next couple of weeks 😳? ) Read on....

We need a better deal. .@VoicesDeal .@williamnhutton
Never in the field of trade negotiations has so much been f**ked up for so many by so few. Business after business is raging at the incompetence displayed by the red-tape Tories in sorting out our new trade relationship with the EU. theguardian.com/politics/202…

Nice work, @mikegalsworthy and @BylineTimes TV. Marr and Peston, your time is up. Truth is coming from elsewhere now.
This is why there is chaos at our ports .. and our Trumpist media is silent because it demonstrates so vividly, like Trump, how party they are to the Big Lie that is Brexit.

Seems an intelligent intervention.
On German TV news ARD calling for urgent border and customs easements for several months to avoid trade chaos #shellfish post #brexit - these are not “teething problems” as UK Govt suggests @RHANews

this is absolutely incriminating
“At least three of the Trump campaign aides named on the permit rushed to obscure their connections to the demonstration. They deactivated or locked down their social media profiles and removed tweets that referenced the rally.” chicagotribune.com/nation-wo…

This is wrong. Not only has he funded an Alt Right think tank (funded by Trump dark money) but the BBC Chairman is a major donor of to the Conservative Party. This is supposed to be a public position, paid by all of us. We’re heading the way of Poland and Hungary.

I can't even begin to fathom why the Gov is planning on introducing this now. Hauliers are struggling as is, journeys are less profitable with the long delays, paperwork is tedious. Why make it even more difficult?
+UPDATE+ The UK Govt plans to raise money from hauliers by taxing them £50 an hour as they park at the govt's 'inland border facilities" while waiting for Brexit customs checks.

End of week 2 thread on post Brexit food trade There is continued growing unease. The main picture remains one of depressed/tentative trade (c50% down y-o-y) and some high profile logistics business have taken the rational step to stop and regroup. theloadstar.com/rtr-db-schen…
