The deputy mayor of Calais Philippe Mignonet has spoken to ITV News this evening, and says he is furious with the English response to the migrant crisis.
He has described this fence which has cost £12 million - a fence which in places has blown down in winter storms which the French themselves have had to repair - as a 'joke'.
He has described this as partly a "British problem", but also says the French government needs to do more.
They think that the scenes playing out here in Calais are all down to the fact that these migrants want to get into Britain - it is a British problem in his eyes, and therefore it is Britain that should act to try to nip this in the bud.
He has invited David Cameron to come here to Calais to see for himself the challenges, and they are planning a demonstration on Saturday directing anger against shipping company DFDS.
The good news is that the strike is soon to be over, the first train services have resumed which means the queuing lorries will start to get moving in the next hour.
But it is going to take many, many hours to clear the backlog which stretches for miles up the motorway.
The French police today have showed absolutely no interest in intervening, certainly where we were, in trying to arrest any of those migrants or detain them.
This has been a problem that has been going on and getting steadily worse for months, a problem that we've reported on repeatedly.
Essentially the French police attitude here seems to be to turn a blind eye, they want this problem to go away.
They know these migrants are desperate to get into Britain, that they don't want to stay in France and of course it would help them if they didn't stay in France.
It means they don't have to process them, they haven't got to deal with them, potentially house them or send them back home. So essentially the French police are hoping migrants to get on the back of lorries.

There was so much fear in Nepal when ITV News was there a couple of weeks ago reporting on the first earthquake.
People were camping outside, terrified to go back into their houses because of the numerous aftershocks.
A second earthquake is only going to compound that.
There have been six aftershocks today alone, some of them lasting 10-20 seconds.
That is sending real fear through the population who are now facing even more destruction.
There is no electricity here, it means people cannot use their mopeds and cars to get out and get supplies and get help because as fuel becomes scarce people want it to run their generators, if they have them.
The rain has been teeming down all day which has made these perilous roads even more difficult to get up and down. The hospitals here, such as they are, are overwhelmed. The big concern now is the risk of a disease outbreak, which would strike the most vulnerable.
