The story is actually quite sad in a very funny sort of way.15 Jan 2013
This is a lovely story but I blame the EU (here, here, I hear many of you mutter into your copy of the Daily Mail) because, pre-Schengen, this would probably not have happened because of passport checks at the various borders she will have crossed. How she did not twig when her passport would have been checked at the Croatian border, I am not sure.15 Jan 2013
One more reason for UK not to sign the Schengen treaty.
We waste time each time we take a flight within EU but at least we can’t drive more than a few hundred miles to go to LHR !15 Jan 2013
Don’t worry about Schengen or the EU. You are protected from driving too far by nature: it’s called the Channel.
You can even continue to drive on the wrong side of the road! That doesn’t bother the rest of us much.15 Jan 2013
No-one to blame but the woman herself! Really, this would be like me going to collect someone at Dundee and keep going until I got to Lands End. I think I would have noticed something wasn’t quite right by the time I was crossing the Forth Road Bridge!15 Jan 2013
I saw the story on the news last night and my jaw hit the floor.
I’m sure her friend was well ****** off!
At least she will have a good story for her grandchildren!15 Jan 2013
This has got the square root of diddly squat to do with the European Union; it has everything to do with the driver acting as if she was brain dead and on autopilot. Perhaps she would be better off just using a plain old map because it might cause her to think for herself and not just slavishly follow instructions.
No sympathy whatsoever.15 Jan 2013
