A NO Deal Brexit could see a rise in DOGGING among lorry drivers who get stuck in long queues, a minister has predicted.
Officials planning to ease congestion on the way to Dover fear randy truckers could visit sex sites in Kent to pass the time.
One cabinet minister told The Times: “One of the things we talk about in these no-deal meetings concerns hauliers and their activities.
“The main thing is whether they will turn up at the Channel ports with the right paperwork. But there are also dogging hotspots all over the place.”
Officials are particularly concerned that home-grown drivers will engage in dogging – watching people have sex in vehicles – with one minister remarking that there was “something deeply British” about the X-rated activity.
This is not the first time dogging has crossed over into the world of politics.
In 2013 Nick Clegg inadvertently visited a sex site in Scotland after an embarrassing blunder by his former campaign manager Ben Rathe.
Mr Rathe picked the Cathkin Marsh beauty spot as the location for the Deputy PM to unveil his 5p plastic bag charge policy.
However, he was unaware that just weeks earlier two male OAPs were caught engaging in an “unsavoury act” in a bird hide there.
Mr Rathe – who is now press secretary for Lib Dem boss Jo Swinson – recalled in his blog that he only discovered his mistake when he spoke to local police during a security check.
The cop remarked: “Interesting place for a visit. It’s a dogging site.”
Mr Rathe said: “Just four weeks before our conference, two pensioners had been caught doing ‘unsavoury’ things to one another in the very bird hut I’d signed off as a suitable location.
“The next morning came, and off went the deputy prime minister and lord president of the council … To a dogging site.”
