After a long quiet period, the United Kingdom’s seaports to France and Belgium are expected to get back to normal this week.
But businesses are watching anxiously, having to battle through new export paperwork brought in after Brexit.
For some, it may mean saying farewell to their biggest market.
Al Jazeera’s Jonah Hull reports from Dover, in Kent.

      @bubblefart Only blinded neoliberal capitalists with a fetish for constant growth, the globalists, and socialliberals with no moral judgement supports the EU. Both the left and right criticizes the union, and so would almost every continent on earth.

      @Serenity most Brexiteers call the EU ‘EUSSR’, saying we are communists. Now we are neoliberal capitalists? Very confusing… 🇪🇺

      @d15ude isn’t it fun debating with brexiteers?

    All who voted for Brexit were warned what could happen, and here we are again

    • Avatar MostlyPlaymobil says:

      It was more about the rebellion. The UK is fractured and split. Low morale. Everyone went into Coronavirus tired. Brexit could of resulted in a Trade Agreement that would of lost FREE TRADE. In that scenario it would of been havoc. But it worked out ok, but only just.

    And the EU export paperwork is any different is it ?

    • Avatar pete sharples says:

      @Maria Lana Not the UK as proven with the Covid Vaccine

    • Avatar Maria Lana says:

      @pete sharples Sorry, but what do you want to say now?
      That EU member states are vasal states due to the vaccine?
      While UK is so fantastic on it as it is independent?

      If it is like this than:
      UK has the same problems as the EU with vaccine.
      They have ordered earlier, approved earlier and got earlier delivery. This is fine. But they also are affected by the reduction of Pfizer-Biontech. Or why do you think, they cannot provide a 2nd dose?
      The EU member states don’t depend on EU. It was an agreement, that they order together. There was a reason, called solitarity. Germany would have got enough vaccine, ordering allown but what is with countries like Malta, Cyprus …
      On top EU doesn’t limit to order extra. Hungary has even approved the sputnik and a chinese vaccine.
      AZ is now approved but Germany has it only until age 65 and Italy even 55.
      All of the countries also have permission to provide poorer countries with vaccine ordered by the EU, if they want to do so.

      So, where is there a vasal situation?

      By the way about solitarity:
      You for sure know, that all countries have a problem with Covid. Portugal is at the moment most effected. Germany has the possibility to send military to help, military hospitals, 27 doctors and nurses and health material. Austria, which has a lot of problems also, they will bring patients of Portugal nevertheless to Austria.
      We all have helped in spring and we do the same again, even with a national problematic situation.

      I understood that you are extreemly against EU, but believe me, we have a good co-operation. Like in a successful merrage we fight but know, that at the end we want to go together.

    • Avatar pete sharples says:

      @Maria Lana Its the UK being Independent that has given the UK the advantage over the vaccine and the UK is about to join the TPP which makes the EU look like a corner shop for trade

    • Avatar Maria Lana says:

      @pete sharples Enough is enough. I wish you all the best. Hope you qill not have a very hard weak up in the near future.
      You behave like radical people do. There is nothing you accept good from the other side, because you just don’t want to see it.
      Future will show.

    • Avatar pete sharples says:

      @Maria Lana If there was anything positive coming from the EU then i would praise it but all i see is greed , power and dare i say Genocide of the European Citizens with how its handled the virus .

  6. Avatar H Fricke says:

    at 1:22 doing more Business with other parts of the world, thats fine, but I am worried they need same amount or more paperworks if they have only freetrate with that countrys too, or worse WTO… So much goods arrive from China India USA in EU – how come this 3rd country can do the paperwork, but Uk gave up and think its easy as a 3d country in other markets? Hopefully no illusion BUT anyway, if they can get it done at otherplaces, maybe its good / eccelent training for trading in addition with EU later to sell more—who knows. And if they will try hard, they shoud lern to trade as a third country, many EU do so from inside the EU

      Because brexiteers think that other countrys cant wait for uk dominance. Other countrys just slap tarrifs on goods, when the uk industry is stronger than their own. Why would you destroy your own market by uk firms? 😂👍

      @LifeOfLewi yes exactly. There is no unity. Kids on the internet are starting to talk about leaving the UN and any other international organisation, without any knowledge of what the UN is of course. More an act of rebellion without knowledge.

    • Avatar Gabs says:

      @MostlyPlaymobil the virus is not clever. The virus is doing what viruses do. The onus is on us. We haven’t had a good strategy to start with and this pandemic has been politicised left and right. The byproduct of this inaction is 100k deaths in the UK and soon to be 500k in the US. Among many other deaths worldwide. It has been a complete and utter failure. Decades of the small state mantra has left us like this because frankly the private sector didn’t pick it up on this one

    Wait until the import papers are needed .. then the EU will start to cry foul… Still waiting for the sky to fall? Still keep seeing the same re-hased news reports. Brexit was not about the economy stupid! (Ronald Reagan). We are so glad to be free of the EU empire..

    • Avatar Anas Judge says:

      Also the UK is about to sign up to a deal with these countries.. A trade area growing 8% per year.. while the EU is shrinking 1% per years… An you know what if the uk decides to vote and leave that agreement because it is not working out for them.. they won’t have to put up with all this nonsense and EU revenge

    • Avatar mobilephonewatches says:

      ​@Anas Judge A country can grow 100% and it doesn’t necessarily mean its doing well. For example, if you had 2p in your pocket and you grow 100%, you are left with only 4p. You are still poor. Basically if those regions like Vietnam increase 8% a year it would take many decades to reach the GDP of just France or Germany. You are basically replacing mature economies with a gamble which “may” or “may not” pay off in 20-50 years. More importantly what can we trade with Vietnam today? Because they are a developing country and most citizens couldn’t afford our products.

    • Avatar Anas Judge says:

      @mobilephonewatches A Desperate argument indeed.. CPTPP covers 500 million people and some of the worlds fastest growing economies.. with no desire for political integration….13% of global income.. and rising each year , compared to EU declining each year

    • Avatar mobilephonewatches says:

      @Anas Judge well right now most of those 500 million people are very poor and couldn’t afford UK made products. Again if you have 2p and i give you 2p everyday your economy is growing 100%. After a year its 36500% growth, but you’re still poor. If you don’t understand that concept then you brexiters are truly dunce and there is no more i can say.

    • Avatar Anas Judge says:

      @mobilephonewatches Well you have obviously not studied economic, and are just emotionally espousing stuff. The CPTT contains many of the worlds fastest growing economies (economics for dummy’s high growth = high profit and invested = jobs) Many of those countries are richer than the UK in GDP per head.. and their economies are complimentary.. we need what they have, they need what we have.. Much better than being dragged backwards by the protectionist anti-free Trade EU.

      It will hopefully be better once teething issues have been resolve, supply chains re-routed.

    • Avatar fred smith- king of the lunatics says:

      Agreed, but that also means for those involved they need to be realistic, for example the ports in Wales.
      They’re highly unlikely to recover with cargo instead going to Ireland.
      They need to understand this and should have already started planning for life without a major port.
      That’s not fear mongering. It’s not scare tactics. That’s the reality of the situation and the longer they don’t consider that option the uglier it will be when they do finally realise it.

    • Avatar New ERA says:

      @fred smith- king of the lunatics unfortunately It’s a reality for many products and services as European countries are starting to cut the middle man (UK) in favor of Ireland and other countries. You will, nevertheless, see politicians spin these facts as the country’s getting smaller and the problem is people will still believe them!

    • Avatar fred smith- king of the lunatics says:

      @New ERA ain’t that the truth. As you said, it’s the reality of the situation. A sad reality but reality none the less.

Military budgets were about 30% of gdp and the world had multiple fronts and alliances forming. We fought and liberated europe from nazism. The price was our empire. 1956 cemented our decline from superpower to global power, where we have been ever since. The americans took our constructs, our bases and set the agenda. It happens.

      Getting paper right will not stop delays… and there will always be wrong paper. If you are a international truck driver you should know this, since there is a lot of borders with EU and all have delays… like all borders. With the volume of trucks UK had before brexit even a common delay of 1min to 3min just to check will create problems with the same volume of trucks.
