You May Or May Not Have Noticed,

that there are a number of problems,

facing UK exporters getting their products into the EU, according to this article a half of British exporters to the EU are facing difficulties with mounting Brexit red tape and border disruption after a month of the new rules, and the way that the French interpret the rules as lorries arrive in France, so as they are being bloody minded I thought I would dust off my copy of 1000 Years of Annoying the French by Stephen Clarke, just to show there are no hard feelings, the read is in fact a very good look at 1,000 years of history albeit at the expense of the French, it contains gems like these, 

Was the Battle of Hastings a French victory?
Non! William the Conqueror was Norman and hated the French.

Were the Brits really responsible for the death of Joan of Arc?
Non! The French sentenced her to death for wearing trousers.

Was the guillotine a French invention?
Non! It was invented in Yorkshire.

what a great laugh this book truly is, I just hope the French customs officials find it as funny as I did!
