THE boss in charge of French channel ports has dismissed warnings of Brexit chaos on the Dover to Calais trade route, saying: “C’est la bullsh**.”
Jean-Marc Puissesseau has claimed that the fears are twisted assumptions by people who do not know what they are talking about, or have an axe to grind.

The president of Port Boulogne Calais said: “The British authorities have been doing a great deal to prepare.
“People say they are asleep but I can assure you that they are highly professional and they are ready.
“There are certain individuals in the UK who are whipping up this catastrophism for their own reasons. This has provoked a lot of concern but basically ‘c’est la bullsh**’.
“Nothing is going to happen the day after Brexit. Britain will be a third country, that’s all, and there is no reason why this should lead to any problems.
“If both sides do their homework, traffic will be completely fluid.” But he said a No Deal Brexit last March would have been a “huge problem”.

He said: “[Then] nobody believed it was going to happen and they were all dragging their feet. But we’ve seven more months and they’re getting ready.”
Mr Puissesseau also told the Telegraph: “If you want to travel as a passenger to the UK you already need a passport.
“That’s completely normal. Travellers do this all the time. This is what will happen with customs declarations.”
