I read that a bank (think it was Monzo) senior staff had a foul mouth rant at Brexiteers. I might disagree with Brexiteers and can see so much damage that has been done by the leave vote but we must argue with others respectfully

"Dover Council at risk of bankruptcy over food import checks"
A council is warning it could be at risk of bankruptcy as £3m of government funding for port checks is withdrawn.
In recent weeks, port officials have highlighted the risk of African swine fever entering the UK from illegal meat and a group of MPs said funding cuts to spot checks and the relocation of the food check centre could increase this risk.

UK postpones Brexit import checks for the 6th time...
The UK government has told the country’s port authorities that it will not “turn on” critical health and safety checks for EU imports when post-Brexit border controls begin this month because of the risk of “significant disruption”.

In a presentation seen by the Financial Times, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) outlined a plan to avoid queues of lorries at ports, revealing that if the new border measures were implemented as planned big delays could follow. 

Since announcing new border controls on plant and food products last year the government has promised it would “phase in” checks, which trade groups have warned will hurt small businesses and drive up the price of food. 

However, just over a fortnight before physical inspections are set to begin, the presentation last week made clear that the new border systems will not be fully ready.

In order to get around the problem, the government said it would ensure the rate of checks was initially “set to zero for all commodity groups” — essentially switching off large parts of the risk management system, in what it called a “phased implementation approach”. 

Implementation of the new border controls has been postponed five times since 2021, which has left EU exporters of animal and plant products free to send them to the UK without checks.
