IF you were hoping to get away from the Christmas strike misery coordinated by union Grinches, bad luck.
Even the escape routes are being sealed off, with walkouts by passport control staff announced yesterday.

Every day, yet more pain is inflicted on the long-suffering public, like a sadistic advent calendar.
The latest is one of the cruellest windows opened yet, wrecking festive holiday plans and family reunions, many already long delayed by the pandemic.
PCS baron Mark Serwotka tried the usual mealy-mouthed attempt to deflect blame for his own union’s decisions on to the Government.
That won’t wash.
Another wrecker, Unite boss Sharon Graham, yesterday boasted of her union’s financial might that would allow it to continue the mayhem indefinitely.
And all the while, Sir Keir Starmer’s Labour Party is happy to take union cash — and refuses to condemn them.
Today we reveal how PM Rishi Sunak is set to toughen strike laws in the New Year, including a ban on ambulance drivers and firefighters walking out.
The great pity is it wasn’t done sooner.
THE backlash against the fakery-strewn trailer for Harry and Meg’s “documentary” has been so widespread that even Netflix itself is keen to disown it.

After the litany of lies, half-truths and skewed slants that emerged from the renegade royals’ Oprah interview alone, Netflix knew exactly who they were getting into bed with.
As for Harry’s latest whine about the need to break down the walls of oppression . . . we remind him of his pampered childhood, all the servants he had at his beck and call, his expensive education and the fact he grew up in a palace, with the Queen as his nan.
He is utterly deluded.
So much so that when the first three parts of his documentary come out today, they should come with a fiction warning for viewers.
Chris ’n’ tell
AS football’s cheeriest character, Chris Kamara isn’t one for self-pity.
So we understand why the presenter — famed for his excitable match reports — instinctively felt the need to hide his growing struggle with his speech.

But as Kammy now admits in his insightful interview today, it would have been better if he’d asked for help sooner.
That’s a lesson for anyone reluctant to get medical worries checked out.
As in Kammy’s case, a problem shared really could be a problem halved.
