Speaking about today’s march Charlie Elphicke, Conservative MP for Dover, said the disruption to local people caused by the demonstrators was “too high a price to pay”.
He said: “Here today in Dover, ferries are waiting at the port being disrupted. The port has been disrupted. The haulage industry has been disrupted.
“Our nation’s economy has been disrupted, as well as the town of Dover and our local economy.”
He added: “It’s too high a price to pay and it’s not acceptable that people can come here, demonstrate, and cause this level of disruption to people going about their daily lives.
“That’s why it’s time that, as constituency MP for Dover, I think we need to look again at the law governing these sorts of situations and make it proportional to the rights of people going about their daily business.”
