    Calais blockaded at the moment it seems. Good timing for a Bank Holiday. :(

    Lifeboats are apparently blocking the ferry port - manned by striking workers

    Can you imagine that ever being tolerated at Dover docks ?

    The French authorities are spineless and gutless jellyfish ... maybe it's time we boycotted France as a holiday destination..

    Pity they didn't have 'principles and guts' when the Germans were invading in 1940. A few blocked roads then could have helped, instead, they all ran and hid under the stairs. (y)

    Stop whinging you lot.:):)(y);)

    Its not closed we came through this morning no problems no delays no big queues of trucks and no immigrants.
    Too much time spent reading tabloids or watching BBC news and not enough travelling.;);)
    According to Euro tunnel website on the way down this morning there was a very very short delay on the French side.
    Currently sat on Gravelines aire just watched yesterday's motogp on my mifi thingy. Waiting for Jan to get my roast dinner ready if she doesn't get a move on I'll have retrain her all over again.:eek:
    Off to Nuremburg tomorrow on our way to Croatia.(y)

    I was going to give you a big like but the sexism inexcusable so your going without:)

    Might just let you off if you do the washing up..

    As you say people are wound up as tight as a drum by all the media BS and they swallow it because it enforces their prejudices on the most part...

    Have a lovely trip...
