Is”retaliation” coming? British truck drivers went to EU countries and even their sandwiches were confiscated
According to the World Wide Web report, after catching the end of 2020, British Prime Minister Johnson finally successfully led Britain out of the European Union and signed Related Brexit trade agreement. But the good times did not last long. The EU’s”retaliation” came suddenly, and all British people were stunned. When a British truck driver was going to an EU country to do business recently, he was stopped by the Dutch customs. They said:All things that do not comply with EU regulations will be confiscated, including the sandwiches in the hands of the driver! After the news came back to the UK, some MPs said:This is the EU’s deliberate revenge, and we cannot admit defeat!
The truck driver who was”retaliated”
This poor driver was”relentlessly blocked” while passing through the Dutch customs. At that time, a Dutch TV station was interviewing customs officers’ daily work. The whole process of the whole incident was filmed in detail. In the video, people can see that a customs officer wearing a yellow vest and a black mask stopped a truck with a British license plate, and then a few people walked forward to search. When they found the sandwich on the side of the driver’s seat, they immediately asked the driver to give them the sandwich for”detailed inspection.”
Customs officers explained to reporters:According to EU regulations, British immigrants cannot Products of animal origin (such as ham, cheese, etc.) such as dairy products or dairy products are brought into the EU. Because these products may carry animal pathogens such as foot-and-mouth disease and swine fever into the EU without being tested, thus affecting EU countries People’s lives and health. The poor driver said that this was his lunch and hoped that the customs officers would”open the net”. In this regard, the Dutch Customs only smiled:Welcome to the”Brexit era”, this is a rule, and we are sorry!
Members express their views
When the video of this poor driver was transmitted back to the UK, a conservative named Marc François Party members said angrily:The European Union has been sucking our blood before the UK has withdrawn. Now that the UK has successfully left the European Union, they are beginning to worry that the”powerful Britain” will quickly seize their overseas markets. That’s why the”shameless EU customs officers” will snatch the innocent British driver’s sandwiches. This is a naked”retaliation”. We must not give in and we must respond.
< p>In fact, this driver is not as innocent as Mark said. After all, the British government signed the Brexit trade agreement. All citizens were notified in a short time:what examples must be paid attention to when entering and leaving EU countries. It’s just that this careless driver may not have adapted to life after Brexit, so his sandwich was”robbed” and he was hungry. As for the Dutch customs'”deliberate retaliation”, it is even more nonsense. They are just acting in accordance with the regulations, and there is a TV station reporter on the side filming, so there is no room for”be merciful”.
< p>Awkward Northern Ireland span>
However, according to the agreement signed between the United Kingdom and the European Union, there is a part of the United Kingdom that can continue to enjoy The EU’s tariff preferences and a series of policies are North Ireland. It is really embarrassing to say that Northern Ireland is across the sea from the British island geographically, and it is close to the European Union country Ireland; now the British do not take them to play with them during Brexit, it is a bit unreasonable.
Although it enjoys the EU’s preferential trade policies, Northern Ireland also has a strong relationship with the United Kingdom. When carrying out logistics and transportation, it must strictly follow the regulations. This has also caused the supply of fresh vegetables, fruits and frozen meats to be blocked in many supermarkets in Northern Ireland, and people’s lives have been seriously affected.
As soon as I think of this issue of stock-out, I will always be with myself. The people of Northern Ireland want to become more and more angry, independent from the UK, and more and more voices to officially join Ireland. If Scotland’s independence is because they have never recognized the British government in history, then Northern Ireland’s independence was entirely caused by Johnson. The problem facing Johnson now has changed from”smooth Brexit” to”defending the country’s integrity.” The difficulty has risen by more than one level. I don’t know what attitude he will face.
