    Dutch border officials confiscating sandwiches from British drivers because you're not allowed to bring food into the EU unless you've eaten it first. More fun and games to follow...

    I think it means you're allowed to have your breakfast before you start your journey, and swallow the evidence.

    Weird... don't remember anyone checking me for hidden food when I've crossed the EU border by car.

    That's probably because you're in the EU?

    Or the fact it's a very new thing is Brexit

    If they are going to strictly apply the letter of the law then I wonder what it means for Irish farmers whose land straddles the EU border. If a sheep wanders across a field it might be seen as the import/export of food.

    No, I meant an outside EU border.

    Kev's right, it's Brexit. In one video the Dutch customs officer even says "Welcome to Brexit" smiling happily as he confiscates the sandwiches.

    I highly doubt they't treat you lot any differently to other non-EU nations.
