A man sitting in a huge queue for passengers trying to cross into the EU via Folkestone has today insisted he didn’t vote for Brexit just so he could be treated like someone from outside the EU.

Derek Williams, 72, is heading for a short break with retired friends to France, but has been left dismayed by the huge queues for travellers leaving a non-EU country and heading into an EU one.

He told us, “This isn’t what Brexit is all about. I voted to take back control, not to be sat in a queue for a couple of hours for no reason whatsoever.

“We are meeting an Irish family we know and they are probably now sat enjoying a beer and a leisurely lunch somewhere just outside Provence.

“When I voted for Brexit, I did it to stop all those foreigners getting in and out of our country so easily, I didn’t vote for it so it would be harder for me to get in and out of theirs, that’s just stupid.

“Just because this particular border was constructed and designed for travel between two countries inside the EU, doesn’t mean it should suddenly be much more difficult now that we are out.”

Meanwhile, non-morons have pointed out that such inconveniences were long predicted by people campaigning against Brexit, but that unfortunately a ‘real future inconvenience’ paled into insignificance against ads depicting entirely fictional hordes of Syrians heading to the UK through Turkey.

Derek remains adamant that voting for Brexit was the right thing to do, telling us, “I can live with a few hours queueing for the Eurotunnel if it means all the foreigners stop coming to the UK.

“Wait, what do you mean migrant numbers from outside the EU have doubled since Brexit? No, that can’t be right. What?! We’re expecting the largest ever number of foreign migrants into the country this year?

“This isn’t the Brexit I voted for!”
