This morning/afternoon.

Government Officials from the Revenue Commissioners, the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine, the Department of Transport and the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment gave an update on the operation of Dublin Port following the end of the Brexit transition period.

Meanwhile…

Around 1 in 5 trucks which arrived into Dublin Port in the last 24 hours have faced delays.

Revenue says just under 80 percent of freight arriving into the Port have been allowed to leave without any additional checks, as a result of Brexit.

It says trade is still not as high as it had anticipated, but believes it will increase in the coming days and weeks.

    It’s not the 20% that arrive in Dublin that’s the problem – it’s the 70%+ that aren’t bothering to travel to Ireland at all, because of ill preparation in the UK for paperwork etc.

        Trucks delayed for days and the Kent access permits (known as Kermits) expire after 24 hours which leaves people subject to £300 fines. No wonder the ferries going direct to the European mainland are in such high demand.

          have you heard about this guy?

          a respectable wine importer based in Brigend, Wales and has been in the business since 1992 importing from far flung parts of the world (so knows the ropes)

          he’s keeping a useful twitter thread about just how great Brexit is going…..not

          ““HM Revenue and Customs are being as helpful as they can be, but it’s not their fault they are civil servants. This is the government’s fault and they don’t give a shit about business. Boris Johnson said ‘fuck business’ and this is exactly what they are doing,” he said.”
