Exactly - no queues as yet - what happens in the future time will tell but I would doubt you will queues.

Drivers - many who used self employment as a tax weeze have been caught out by IR35, hence the shortage - something surely you applaud - or is it only rich tax avoiders you don't like?

Tepid demand - have we all stopped eating as the vast majority of freight on wheels through Dover will be food-related products?

You think Eastern European drivers were using IR35 ?
You think the vast majority of freight going through Dover is food or foodstuffs?

Have you been smoking weed ?

You can see you have never been in transport - the EU drivers exited years ago as soon as the £ went west they went east. There has been a serious driver shortage for about 4 years - and this has been increased due to IR35. As I said its only rich folks you call out for working the system!!

On Dover - approximately 30% of food imported into the UK comes through either Dover or Folkestone - this represents approximately 60% of all freight through and this excludes products including in mixed groupage RORO vehicles.

LOL the eastern drivers left after Brexit and being treated like **** at the border last year.

Good to see you quietly backtracking on your claim that '"the vast majority" of freight passing through Dover was food related though.

It was aimed at all the Tory voting IT Y2K scam contractors who were pulling 5k a week then and paying no tax :D
All them at our place shat theirsells and the lads were bubbling them all to the tax :D

"Do as I say and not as I do"
Surely this is the mantra of the current Troy government

In the grand scheme of things, its more important that they do things properly and it doesnt matter what a poster on RLFans thinks.

At least Labour managed to repel the Tories in Batley - just :D

You are delusional - those were EU based drivers!!

60% is the vast majority - good to see your view of food being a very small element of Dover freight being shown to be what most of what you post - complete rubbish

Still no condemnation of tax avoidance amongst the normal working population - only rich folks are worthy of Ghost's wrath - you really are a joke poster

If it hadn't been for Gallaway - Labour would have remained pretty static - good result for Labour - if I were Boris I would be worried

It takes quite some agility to pretend there hasn't been an outflow of EU drivers from the UK in the past year. Unless our haulage supplier is making it up (or the head of the RHA come to that). We've seen the same thing in our warehouse; depressingly pick rates and accuracy have gone down because a large chunk of the best workers have exited the country.

If 60% constitutes "the vast majority" (and I haven't checked your figures) to you then that's fine; I doubt it does to many other people.

Sorry, I didn't realise I had to issue a regular fatwa list to meet with your approval? I can't even begin to imagine what you're talking about here.

Pretty static does not appear a good result to me, apart from the vaccination the Blues have been having a horrid time over the last 12 months - Labour seem to be doing the best part of nothing to capitalise on it.

Thought Starmer was going to turn them wrong but he looks out of his depth with a poor shadow cabinet to boot - standing at the despatch box reading questions as though he was still in his old job makes Boris look good, and that takes some doing

Plus, my vision of Labour is a working class party and “Sir Kier” does not have the right image - wouldn’t be surprised to see Burnham being dragged back in at some point
Onwards and upwards - LTID
