An interesting piece by the BBC focusing, for a change on the European side of Brexit, in particular the Netherlands. It looks at DFDS, which is predicting it will have to have to divide its terminal into separate parts to accommodate the UK, and is facing costs due to potential Customs delays. The UK is responsible for 4% of the Dutch economy, so an end to free trade could “well make a dent in Dutch growth figures”.  And the Dutch have a fair bit to say about the Brexit negotiations and UK politicians – “unrealistic”, “not rational” and “blind”.  Characteristics that are familiar to everyone, whatever side of the Brexit divide you fall on.
