What! You tell me there's something 'special' about Dover/Calais?
Do grow up. It ain't going to happen. The frightening creature under your bed does not exist (but sells loads of newspapers).
I can do the first bit: it's special because it's new in a sort of Halley's comet way.
As to queues in Kent or wherever, it depends on how soon hauliers realise they that need a Common Transit movement to get beyond Calais, know where the Offices of Departure are and refuse to load goods that haven't been through export formalities. Or, as Logistics UK (formerly the FTA) said recently, they could always smuggle.
