Re: Lying in the Chamber

As Boris assumes tracking devices would let them track imports, does he actually expect those smuggling stuff to put the required trackers in their goods????

Perhaps its just me, but I think smugglers would be a bit cleverer that that.

Remember that at one time the Irish on both sides of the border imported livestock , got a grant of that, then exported same beasts back to the same source, and got a grant for that too. Luckily they owned farms on either side of border, so the poor beasts didnt have to spend too long inside the truck before going home that same day.

I don't think tracking technology will be misused. I also believe in unicorns.
