It seems that way, but believe me, you are checked out soon after you book yer ticket.....they only stop the iffy ones.......some might slip through the net but very few compared with the numbers in and out of the country as a whole.

I travel regularly to Dublin via several ports in the UK. They can do all the checks they want on me and I will come up squeaky clean, but, I could put anything or anybody into the boot of my car and take it / them in or out out under the radar and nobody knows. I would prefer to be asked to arrive 2 hrs early at port to enable ALL cars, vans and lorries into and out of Ireland to be checked, to keep it safe.

That's why they don't stop you....

You could but you never have....and not likely to ?.

I want to know why the Barnet Bugle is not reporting on Barnet FC's terrible season they are having , played 27 matches and have only won 5 games.....they are last in the lowest division of the 4 major leagues in England and looks like they will be relegated to Non League football next season....

That's why the Bugle isn't reporting on it. Actually since Barnet FC moved to The Hive we at the Bugle don't have the budget to cover it ( bus fares etc.)

I'm sure the roving reporter misses the pie and chips in the ground at half time
