Whatever the politicians say, whichever way you swing on Britain leaving the European Union (Brexit), the camera never lies.... Watch for the full effect of the 'sunlit meadows' former Prime Minister Boris Johnson once poetically conjured up in his urging on the controversial issue. Made by British political campaign group Led By Donkeys, the footage reflects the reality of Britain's southern border as post-Brexit checks kicked in for both commercial and leisure vehicles. As foreseen by many, massive tailbacks developed as a result of the loss of freedom of movement - a right enjoyed by citizens of the EU - and ensuing border checks. No extra provision appeared to have been made to handle the foreseeable increase in workload for border staff, and parts of the M20, the main artery for the Dover-Calais crossing, were reallocated as parking lots for the backed-up trucks carrying exports and supplies. In the febrile atmosphere following the government's handling of the Covid situation, outfits such as Led By Donkeys - established in December 2018 as an anti-Brexit group, but which has also criticised other actions of Boris Johnson's government - doubled their efforts to throw fresh light on political actions and their consequences. What do you think of this footage?
