    General Discussions on Brexit

    most people did not know what it meant to leave How do you know that? How many of the 17 million have you asked?

    General Discussions on Brexit

    I voted 'Leave' for a number of reasons but the most improtant one to me was that I do not want to see this country become just a province in a United States of Europe. All of the British government's statements and warnings before the referendum were clear - the result would be honoured and that it was a unique occasion. It was the largest turnout for any election o or referendum that this country has ever experiences and I don't regard a majority for leaving of over a million people a narrow victory.

    And for how long would that 'exemption' last? The two-speed Europe is only a form of words to get round the problems caused by a few hesitant members not (yet) fully committed to 'The Project.' The direction of travel never changes and never will.

    it is not a federation of states like the USA. Not yet, but that's the intention.

    Ships nicknames

    When my son worked as a car marshall at Poole, he said that Barfleur was known as 'Barf-tub' and, yes, Cotentin was 'Cocoa-tin.'
  9. I was also wondering about this - she's currently entering the harbour after waiting for Barfleur to sail.

    Amorique visits Poole on Monday

    We did a day crossing on the Armorique on Thursday and we drove around the ramp and on to the lowest deck on the way out. Coming home we were put on to the next deck up, driving up the ramp to board and unloaded down Poole's ramp. There was a delay in Poole before we could drive off. We couldn't quite hear the reason given over the tannoy but it was something to do with the rough weather during the crossing.

    No, they 'lose-, not 'loose.'

    Barfleur

    Although I've frequently taken advantage of the day trip aspect, I think the real advantage if the 0830 sailing is that arriving in France at about 1345 (CET) gives plenty of time for onward travel.
