The car park is privately owned. HBC attempted to buy it a few years ago but the current owners wanted a fortune for it which HBC couldn't justify spending.

I don't think any leaver believed that the EU would go out of its way to make life and trade for Brits and Europeans to be so difficult. It seems that they want to PUNISH us for leaving with no thoughts of the negative effects on the people of the UK & the EU. A case of let's punish the UK to discourage any other nation considering leaving. Remember, Ireland had two referenda attempts on leaving before the third one went the way the EU wanted. I seem to remember a similar thing in Denmark. This is what happens when the ruling body, the European Commission, is not a democratic organisation so they can ignore the will of the people.
I have travelled alone, from the age of twelve to the EU, the world and behind the Iron Curtain far easier than I can now to the EU. I thought that the worse the EU could do was to revert to pre-Maastricht but that's all. Remember, the EU never allowed us free travel in the EU as we never joined Schengen.
I am not certain of where we go from here but I doubt very much that rejoining the the EU is the answer. We will not get the same deal as we had and we would likely have to join the EU and Schengen. I have never had any objection to joining the Common Market but I don't think the EU will allow that without accepting the EU political and financial rules.

   The minority returned home but now we have even bigger numbers of asylum seekers [2000 at the last count] that will be staying forever in our children's houses.

   Finally a Tory you can agree with.

   Our kids can't get a council house because all the Romanians and Poles have them....

No the majority retuned back home, the hospitality industry can?t fill the vacancies they left behind, there are no Council houses as councils don?t build them anymore like Hartlepool did in the 60s. They were sold of never to be replaced, builders won?t build affordable homes because there is no profit in them.

Hartlepool in the news for all the wrong reasons (again). https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/other/rishi-sunak-cracks-the-whip-to-get-benefits-claimants-into-work/ar-AAY3kIn?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=61efcd1d0ab24ec59aadb38d23f343c8

Unfortunately the benefits system suits people who only work part time with families, if they take a full time job it would cost them a fortune in child care.
