With the filthy French blockading their own Channel ports again, it looks like Ramsgate - Oostende has become the crossing of choice for the truckies. Pootling past the port tunnel road in the Priapus just now, it was nose to tail with juggernauts backed right up onto the roundabouts. In fact the sign said it was officially closed - our own mini version of Operation Stack perhaps - and trucks were being diverted to the port through the town.
Still, it's all money for the port, which already contributes a tidy sum to the council coffers. Who knows, if the French keep this up, we could all get a rebate on our council tax next year! Vive la difference!
