“a sudden, usually temporary malfunction or fault of equipment”
I am not too sure Brexit issues were a sudden event and they are clearly not temporary but the new normal for some.
The Dover County Council is always ready to declare a major incident but the real major incident was the people of Dover and its surroundings voting for Brexit knowing that they would have generated this. I am not pitiful for ignorance and I will not make an exception for this one either. And I don’t even want to start to say what I think about directors like the P&O ones who believed you can replace a trained workforce like they did: it shows the contempt for work in general and skills are kept in the United Kingdom. A company like P&O deserves to go the wall.
