I fear border wait is a sign of the future
DEAR Editor, Let us hope that all of those relishing our liberation from the tyranny of the European Union do not have an experience like mine last week.
Returning overland from the Ukraine to Poland, the bus passed through the Ukrainian border control with no problems. Yet all passengers had to disembark with their luggage on the Polish side.
All luggage and passports were subjected to high security scans and many were questioned and a least eight or nine were refused entry. The bus was thoroughly searched.
This delay was seven hours, resulting in a 3am arrival in Katowice, Poland and a late night walk through the streets.
Poland’s eastern border is also the eastern border of the European Union and such scrutiny and security will lead to similar problems for Britain if we continue to pursue such a reckless and ill thought-out exit from the European Union.
