A driver's ham sandwiches have been seized at the Dutch border for breaking EU rules... I wonder if he wishes he'd voted Remain now?

The silly season will be over soon.
Im sure that could be reciprocated in some way in reverse!
We could always ban imports of Danish bacon and butter. Problem is I'm very fond of Lurpak.
Something a bit less severe than that jackdaw, I like danish bacon!!!
Aldi sell "Nordpak" (used to be called "Norpak") which is said to taste the same as "Lurpak" (no idea if it does or no) and is made in the ROI.
Hauliers should have supplied all drivers with the rules following Brexit.
True, he should have been told of the dos/donts
"Hauliers should have supplied all drivers with the rules following Brexit."
They probably would have, except for BJ's brinkmanship, which meant that nobody knew the rules until within hours of them coming into force.

Its all a bit petty isn't it,and they wonder why people voted to leave.
They'll have specially trained dogs to sniff out this nefarious garbage that can corrupt our children!
My opinion is that the Dutch customs were hamming this up.

It's similar rules that a apply to any country. Try taking a ham sandwich into USA, Canada, Australia.
It's what you voted for in Brexit. Stop whining, put on your Union Flag underpants, and accept the consequences.

Whos whining,i certainly aren't,i havnt been across to europe in many years so couldnt give two monkey's but it is still petty,and i hope the british public stick two fingers up at them and stop buying their goods.
I suppose Johnny foreigner expects our valiant knights of the road to eat that greasy, garlic-riddled foreign muck they call food then.

A test case should be brought by their union.

Do they know who we are, etc.

Ironically nobody could find Sovereign fags at the duty free.
The Dutch are the world's largest producers of mink-fur, these beautiful creatures are kept by them for life in cages the size of a breadbin before being slaughtered & their fur sent to CHINA!

Ham sandwiches? Bah!

Many countries have rules about what may or may not be taken in. It was the driver's and driver's company's responsibility to know; although so soon after a change when previously it would have been fine, common sense by authorities would be to inform and allow a grace period: but common sense and authorities do not come together. Job'sworths only need apply.
//...and allow a grace period://

We've had a grace period, OG. Four and a half years from June 2016. Let them continue to play silly beggars until they tire of it and return to arguing among themselves.
Khnadro, according to your link it is ONE of the world's leading mink-producing companies. What that has to do with truckers trying to take a ham sandwich across the border is beyond me
It's hardly a grace period when normal operations were the practice at the time. A grace period would be for when the new rules are applied but where it's not immediately vital one can let folk off with a warning regarding not doing so next time.
"Its all a bit petty isn't it,and they wonder why people voted to leave. "

People voted "leave" so that they could then seize on incidents like this :-)
Others voted "remain" to avoid incidents like this.

Go, as they say, figure.
