Bri­tain bet­ter off stay­ing in the EU

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

If the vote to leave the EU is suc­cess­ful then not only will we be spared the prob­lems of ‘Op­er­a­tion Stack’ – as there will be much less freight trav­el­ling to the Con­ti­nent – but also there will be an up­turn in trade for to­bac­conists and of­fli­cences in this part of the South East be­cause the ‘baccy and booze’ cruises will cease. This, of course, will re­sult in an in­crease in Cus­toms Of­fi­cers needed to check in­com­ing trav­ellers to make sure that the old lim­its on al­low­able al­co­hol and to­bacco are ad­hered to.

Per­son­ally, I pre­fer that we stay in Europe. Booze cruises, etc, are a minute con­sid­er­a­tion com­pared with the over­rid­ing ad­van­tages of the cur­rent ac­cess we have to markets cur­rently. Brian Lawrence Ham­street
