So this Kent permit thing. The new border.

That's just the other side of Croydon.

The French had a revolution about this sort of thing.
Brexiters love borders. Between GB and NI and now between Kent and RUK.

Let's say you're driving a truck from Tilbury Docks to say, Gatwick. You'd go A13, Dartford Crossing, M25, M23.

The problem is that on the M25 between the Thames and about Clacket Lane services, you're in Kent. Do you still need a permit even though you're just passing through it? Or are you expected to go the long way round the M25 or even (shudder) the South Circular?

Do you really imagine Gove has given it that much thought?

Or, you leave the M25 and join the M2 or 20. OK, assuming that the top class world beating IT system isn't up and running, you need to be manually checked. Where? Close a lane? Hard shoulder? Waste ground just off the junction?

And spare a thought for the police doing the checks. In the winter. That's going to be a fun post.

If you're looking for a smart investment, it's looking like roadside sandwich bars and escort agencies in Kent.
