Dover delays

I really don't understand the motives behind such stringent check ups by the French police at the port of Dover.
Is it a one off checking like this? If it is then surely any would be terrorist would abandon his plan and wait for another day. And in any case most of them travel by road from Belgium or Holland.
Is it the case of French police trying to reassure the public that they doing something for their security?
I think whatever they planned to do they made a right hash of it.

Re: Dover delays

Probably the French being awkward again ! Apparantly there are about 7 desks but only 3 are in operation (something like that, according to the T.V. news)

Re: Dover delays

It looks like the French have taken control of their borders, isn't that part of what we just voted for ?

Re: Dover delays

No it is not part of what we have just voted for.
We voted amongst a number of other things to control immigration not to disrupt travel with no rhyme or reason

Re: Dover delays

There was just one guy on duty last night, so with breaks etc and no one to cover for him, you can imagine the delays, typical French, one of the busiest times of the year with the children breaking up from school and they improve security but lower the staff on duty, really effective.

Re: Dover delays

It is also the responsibility of the UK border force to carry out these checks if the French are unable or unwilling , apparently they do niot have the staff and have called in Border Force staff from around the country , but they are delayed getting there.

Our border , our duty , caught short on the busiest time for holidaymakers.

thanks Prime Minister

Re: Dover delays

I suspect it is the French being French again. One more reason that we chose to live in Turkey when we originally had a fair smattering of French and absolutely no Turkish. I love the country of France but do not have a lot of time for the national character.

So how do we control immigration ? Just smile and waive them through ? Or should it be a one way street ?

Re: Dover delays

Martin I hardly think people who spent month in Sangatt in those appalling conditions and risked their life trying to get to Britain now want to smuggle themselves back to France.
We control immigration by restricting freedom of movement which is as far away as you can imagine from practically what the French police is doing at the moment. Remember alot of those stuck in the traffic are French national

Re: Dover delays

Lets not forget what's going on, France is still in a State of Emergency, now victims/families from Nice & Paris are taking the French Government to court over their failure on security.
If we know that here in the UK we have terrorists in our midst, I'm sure the French are aware also. The French are doing no more than what we should have done years back, check who is coming in & who is going out.
