Give priority means exactly that. The opposing vehicle has the right to go first! There is nothing in the highway code, at least not that I can recall, which says that the opposing traffic MUST go first!

I can't see how they could fine for this.

We approach junctions and are often waved or flashed out ... traffic on the major road has the priority but nothing says they MUST go before me.
The red Mandatory circle sign is what says you must give priority....
I agree with the order Tim. Must give priority but my argument is that if they give up that right there is nothing in the code to say that they HAVE to go first.
