They have to an extent, in the Paris Metro, which is a step up from low speed lines like the DLR - 1 line (14) was designed to be autonomous from birth and line 1 has been converted, with line 4 in progress.
Obviously it's not like converting a main line (no deviation from the route) but it's a start.
Oh but it is a problem, due to the Le Touquet Treaty - that allows UK Customs officials to make border checks on French soil.
As a seperately negotiated agreement that can be terminated at any time by either party with just 2 year's notice, it represents a massive potential curve ball.
If the French do the pull the plug (and they have every right, due to the lack of support over the Calais migrant camps by HM Gov) it WILL be chaos.

Polaroid stopped making the peel apart film some years ago but Fuji carried the torch until they ceased production early this year.

Whatever, if the person responsible doesn't have the cajones big enough to admit it was shome mishtake, at least move it to the right column. Hell, even flowing it across the main content horizontally would be an improvement. As it is the proximity to the "Don't Miss" div is enough to kill it with fire.
IIRC it was Mike Rutherford that wrote the lyrics to to Land of Confusion..
As for the group's masterpiece it's between Foxtrot ot Selling England for a lot of people.
Although I have a soft spot for A Trick of The Tail - first album of theirs I bought. First few bars belting out of my old Dad's Tannoy Lanchesters - I was hooked for life.
