    Just been reading an article that states, that in another move of desperation the UK government has spent 107 million pounds on buying extra space on cross channel ferries.The article doesn,t state how long the money cover them for,could be 1 month,1 year,who knows.One thing that is certain,is that it is a great boost for European companies like Brittany Ferries and could create more crossings on Cherbourg/Poole and Roscoff/Plymouth routes,good news!

    Yes. Wonder what the Brexiters think about it.  Thought they wanted to be away from the EU.  If they want to be fed, they’re now going to have to rely on French and Danish ferries.  :wacko:

    The more you look in to this,the more suspect it becomes.The only British company that was awarded a contract,Seabourne Freight,awarded 14million pounds,has no ships,no staff and is currently not operating.One thing it does have though….is a boss who is the son of one of the biggest private funders of the Conservative party.Think we are all starting to get the picture!

    And the minister in charge of all this – Failing Grayling, surely one of the most useless government ministers ever to put on a pair of shoes – described by John Crace in the Guardian recently as ‘the incompetent’s incompetent’.

    The latest is that Brittany Ferries will be keeping the money even if they are not required  to provide any extra services,good news for them.Yet another desperate measure taken by the UK Government,not thought through and more money wasted.
