The real reason behind the quarantine when coming back from France

Post by mysty »

Brexit is just around the corner, my mole in number 10 says he overheard Boris and Cummings coming up with a plan to clear the ferries of tourists to make way for food imports from January.
Empty ferries and planes can bring in goods instead.
Brits can spend money in UK pubs rather than el toros in Spain or chez pizza lino in France.
If they waited until December everyone would say it's because of brexit.

From the UK government's perspective that's closer to the truth than you might have expected. Or not.

When did the travel ban come in? I was not aware of any - and I need to get to Switzerland soon (which has not as of yesterday added either UK or France to its red list)

Probably the same time as the "flight ban" and the various other made up "bans" certain parts of the UK MSM love to bang on about.

In reality if they exist at all they are usually restrictions in some way shape or form, and come complete with either exemptions or caveats..

Can you see a family of four handing over £600 for tests? Methinks not but business travellers or the wealthy might.

This is the questionable bit.
I don't think there is any chance of Boris or his cronies being able to develop a plan.

Apart from anything Boris is on holiday, not sure on holiday from what as he doesn't seem to have done anything over the last 6 months apart from sort his divorce and catch coronavirus.

Thank you for pointing out my error which has now been changed.
I'm only a second or third generation brit and I did speak French at some point two days ago.
This bilingual thing can be confusing.
