DMcG BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2797* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 03 Apr 21


Since Brexit good news is in short supply, here is some from a friend of mine. Admittedly, it only gets a small part of the haulage business back to where it was in the first place, but every little helps. As it seems to be due to the generosity (and self interest!) of France, I do not expect much praise from the leave side, but there you are.


Guess what. The French have given us Brits back the right to have access to their abnormal load roam permits, yay / phew. I played a key part in this win. I said to our diplomats exactly the right things to make it happen. I am ecstatic. Convoi Exceptionnel Ltd should be fêted in the mass media, but nobody cares enough about transport, so - not, hey-ho, it does mean I can still fit my pride-swollen head through a door... But this is a huge victory for British hauliers, and for many hundreds of UK industries, and a top achievement of my life. Must mention my colleague Caroline Ward, who did some excellent research, that was just as crucial to the win. Also the Heavy Transport Association, esp John Dyne, who is a brilliant and very insightful person. And I adore the French, for doing this. Entente cordiale it still is. Yay.
