How many more experts and industry representatives have to line up against the Tories before the general public finally accepts that Theresa May’s Brexit is a national disaster?

Note – I didn’t write “will be”. It is already a national disaster.

It can only get worse. That’s what these people are telling us.

Shipping and port bosses will warn Theresa May that a two-year transition period after Brexit will not be long enough to ensure “frictionless” trade continues in Dover and other British docks.

David Dingle, the chairman of Maritime UK, which represents marine and shipping industries, said he was “very nervous” about the future and concerned the government was putting £16bn worth of business in jeopardy with threats of no Brexit deal.

His concerns stemmed, he said, from the reality of developing new customs declarations systems in time to prevent gridlock at ports and their approach roads.
