‘We were right to leave EU!’ Britons furious Dutch officials mock British driver
Brexit: Drivers have sandwiches confiscated at Dutch border
Yesterday a video emerged of Dutch officials laughing at the driver after they took away his sandwich due to post-Brexit import regulations. The footage went viral and caused outrage among Express.co.uk readers.
One reader said: “The pure pettiness of EU officials is not surprising, oh how they laugh.
“Well, how stupid is it to be seen to openly mock and humiliate British people entering Europe when many of your countrymen rely on their experts to the UK?
“British consumers are already actively boycotting EU goods, so carry on for he who laughs last, laughs the longest.”
Another reader commented: “Notice the difference, EU take away lorry driver’s food.

“UK residents cooked and delivered FREE of charge to those stuck EU27 lorry drivers food and drink.
“Looked after them in their desperate time of need.
“Good riddance EU.
“You prove we were RIGHT to leave every time.”
A third reader said: “It would be ironic if the ham was originally made in Holland.
“I’ll simply leave bacon marked Netherlands on the shelf and choose UK bacon instead.”
A fourth reader said EU fanatics are “feeding the fire” of British anger towards the bloc.
They said: “In hope those EU fanatics keep behaving like this and it keeps hitting the press.

“There is a major backlash getting underway against EU imports and it is going to get much much worse.
“They are feeding the fire.”
Another person simply said the UK will have the “last laugh” when the EU “implodes”.
Under EU rules, travellers from outside the bloc are banned from bringing in meat and dairy products.
The Dutch official can be heard on the footage saying: “Since Brexit, you are no longer allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, fruit, vegetables, fish, that kind of stuff.”
Despite the officials just following the EU rules, former Brexit Party MEP Ben Habib lashed out at the footage saying it was “madness”.
He told Express.co.uk: “One of Britons’ greatest strengths is our common sense. We are famed for it; able to judge situations in the round and find a sensible solution.
“You would never catch a Bobby confiscating someone’s lunch.
“No doubt these Dutch border officers took pleasure in their inflexible application of EU bureaucratic madness.
“All I can say is thank God we are out.”
