ACCORDING to an article appearing in the Daily Mail, French Authorities have allegedly acted somewhat precipitately to remove signs at the entrance to the Channel Tunnel which directed motorists to various areas for passport control.
These signs, which they reported were dumped on the ground, show the EU flag and a list of acceptable countries for passport control under the French and Union flags.
They propose that this is just a sign of how things will change now that the UK has voted to leave the Union and the article suggests that this just the start of UK Border Agency officers being told to remove themselves from French soil back to Britain.
The rationale behind all of this is that the French will take any opportunity to rid themselves of the thousands of migrants who are camped out in Calais prior to trying to enter the UK, and quite unreasonably want this to become a British problem by sending British officials back to the UK.
This was of course something that was predicted prior to the referendum but whilst the UK remains a member of the European Union, it seems unlikely that there will actually be any obvious change.
Time will tell whether the signs were removed because they were in need of repair or if this is the first stage in a dastardly French plan to change the rules.
