This is an excerpt from an article in the May issue of a local freebie in the Dordogne:

^ "France 3 ran a news report on the dozens of Portaloos being installed in northern France to cope with the traffic tailbacks! The portable toilets were set up along the A16 motorway between Calais and Dunkirk as a result of the lengthy traffic jams caused by customs worker protests and in anticipation of further queues of motorists struggling to get through the Channel ports after Brexit."^

The article goes on to say that a new contract for toilets has been issued in the UK as part of Operation Stack. Apparently non disclosure agreements have been signed by the contracted companies to try to keep the arrangements secret.

Perhaps failing Grayling is getting something right at last.

Poor old Chris Grayling. What a completely tit.

Since French workers are forever striking and manning the barricades, extra toilets will be useful for the ‘held up’ French motorists who get caught short.

Isn’t it appropriate that the words ‘Brexit’ and ‘toilet’ appear in the same article?
