I fear bor­der wait is a sign of the fu­ture

Birmingham Post - - NEWS -

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.

Gary Ker­lin, We­o­ley Cas­tle
