Welcome Richard. Yes we need ways to export and import without the French hindering us. Everytime they want to have a dig at us they can shut their Ports. Apparently they (as usual) ignored the EU saying open the Ports. We in GB always stick to the rules whilst the French do whatever they wish.
Quick update regarding Germany freight flights, I enquired regarding computer parts from Berlin only to get the news that all flights to the UK meaning ALL freight was included has been halted to UK think bit sad really could be Merkel repaying here gratitude for Brexit.
