'UNACCEPTABLE' French FURY over EU plan to EXCLUDE French ports in post-Brexit trade route

'UNACCEPTABLE' French FURY over EU plan to EXCLUDE French ports in post-Brexit trade route
FRANCE is on collision course with the European Commission after it excluded French ports as part of its plans for a new shipping route linking Ireland with the bloc post-Brexit.

French Transport Minister Elisabeth Borne blasted the move, which could prevent France from accessing billions of euros in an EU grant, as "not acceptable".

In a strongly-worded letter to European Commission transport bosses, she said France and Ireland's "important trade channels" had not been taken "into account".

Ms Borne wrote a letter to the EU's transport commissioner, dated August 10, saying: "France and Ireland maintain important trade channels, both overland via Britain and via direct maritime routes.

"The geographical proximity between Ireland and France creates an obvious connection to the single market.

.
"Surprisingly, the Commission proposal in no way takes this into account.

"This proposal therefore is not acceptable to France."

The new route would connect Ireland by sea with Dutch and Belgian ports including Zeebrugge and Rotterdam.

However French ports such as Calais and Dunkirk would be bypassed.

At stake are jobs, millions of euros' worth of port revenues and possible EU infrastructure funding.

Ms Borne said that French ports had the necessary resources to ensure they could handle the likely increase in trade flows, hinting at concerns of congestion in ports such as Calais, France's busiest passenger port.

The plans looked to route one of its corridors to connect Dublin and Cork with with ports of Zeebrugge and Antwerp in Belgium, as well as the Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands, to transport trade directly from Ireland to mainland Europe.

While the UK can no longer be part of EU routes after Brexit, circumventing it prevents Irish exports to Europe from getting caught up in British customs.


Europeans major problem is they have women running everything

There is Roscoff, St Malo, Cherbourg, Le Havre, Caen, Dieppe, and Boulogne sur Mer. Calais and Dunkirk are always busy, so there are plenty to choose from and they are closer to Ireland. Can be very rough in the winter on those routes though. :|

• Dieppe? Have you ever seen the port there? About the size of a doll house.

• and the sea lane can be rough in winter? What alternative Ireland/EU route do you suggest?

Roger is becoming as gaga as watcha.

Watcha is with me on FB. Through the UK in bad weather. The crossing to Hollyhead is usually the calmer of the crossings. There is the other, at Pembroke Dock, where Dewi Sant and his pikey mates drink. That is a little less sheltered. Dieppe is a little confined, I have to admit. :lol:
