On a positive note , I hear on the news that the French have taken it upon themselves to destroy all the speed cameras because the Government reduced the speed limits . You 've got to love those yellow vested militant bastards ha ha .:1408:

Always an upside but the local gendarmes will still be out with their hand held guns looking to recoup some Sterling to pay for the EU once we crash out with a no deal

Have they arranged any ferries yet so we can go on holiday?

In any case, I suggest we all wear our mandatory yellow vests. That way we'll be assured of the support of all millitant French workers and can legitimately just have a fight with any police who feel we must be prevented from going about our lawful duty to drive at 160mph. I shall bring a supply of house bricks. Frappée le systeme!

On the plus side, the yellow vests have reportedly wrecked 60% of the French speed camera network as part of their protest so that's one less concern for the lead car to get caught before radioing back to the train.

At least post-Brexit we won't share our driver info with them for speeding fines and the like. Hopefully.

If there is a Brexit.

I'm already tired of 2019, shall we just go on the jolly pre-Brexit to assure ourselves of a crossing. We can watch the race on TV. :)

Come on Matt..... spill the beans on the route
Still planning but now the ferries are booked and we are going through Dov/Cal I can start looking at routes. I want to go to Laval for night 2 to see Phil696 for the night. He’s looking into hotels for us. Night 1 might be Le Touquet or Montreuil Sur Mer or somewhere new.

I tried to get into a known hotel in Lille but they didn’t want us.

Relieved we have a crossing confirmed - I was starting to worry we wouldn’t get across.

Now I am worried what you guys get up to that means hotels you stayed at before don’t want you back ......... :cool:
