But you can hopefully now see why at least some people voted in favour of Brexit. With partners and best friends like that, who the hell needs enemies?

Their job to defend the UK from UK bound intruders? Exactly how should they be "arsed" to do their job - lethal force? (I asked you that question before). What about those migrants that the UK's Royal Navy so generously picked up in the Med. and dumped on the Italians and who then made their way to French coast?

Since when is everyone supposed to cater to the English? The empire was over a long time ago. And nowadays, it's become blatantly apparent that English exceptionalism is hardly that.

You're going to have to get used to the fact that England isn't the exception anymore. It voted for that. Live with it.

The UK government chose to fund UK immigration officers at French ports. Same as the U.S. chooses to enhance it's security by posting personnel at every airport with direct flights to the U.S.

But yet again, if people voted for Brexit because of that, well that's got nothing to do with our EU membership and will be unlikely to change. Unless either side ends the agreement.

Though Brexit may end it, in which case, UK border control returns to the UK border and the French will carry on as usual. Either way, will those who voted Leave because of this get what they expected Brexit to change?

Then why are you complaining about the UK funding placement of UKVI officers in French ports?

I think it might have something to do with Marie Antoinette.

Securing their own borders and processing illegal migrants isn't catering to the whims of the British. It's part of looking after their own country and population. That's what a government is paid to do.

I can't think of any other area of the developed world where the kind of mess that Europe has made in terms of border controls would be allowed to happen and fester for so long.
