  1. I remember doing a day crossing with to St. Malo on it when I think there were 2 ships on the route. Long day but must have been cheap.
  2. I think there might also be an issue around sailing frequency especially to Caen. I'm not sure 3 sailings each way will be possible given the already announced staggering of getting on and off. Many folk won't want to travel but I could easily see a morning ex Pompey and early pm ex Caen and overnights both ways becoming the offering which would mean the those booked on the missing (cheaper) sailings would need to be cancelled / rebooked.

    Quite agree. Most of the free loaders in the EU are also unacounatable. The principles are brilliant but things have changed so much over the years. Many in both establishments (and other governments) are the same..... the UK government and the EU are not so different to others.

    Shock horror I am also neither old, xenophobic or racist. I am an accountant by trade and manage over 50 people in the financial services sector, am fairly well educated and yet amazingly still voted to leave. I am certainly not the brightest but neither am I ignorant, thick or naive. Unlike many I don't claim to understand everything to do with the EU and my reasoning is very similar to Nick's. I think the EU is broken but I also believe it provides an unending bucket of money for a quite a few to be paid enormous sums of money on working groups, committees and all sorts of junkets travel

    Sadly I think the referendum turned into a competition between exagerated promises and exagerated scaremongering. My own view is that the decision was far too complex for a referendum especially when most politicians (on both sides) did their usual of making statements and promises they personally wouldn't have to deliver. The EU do have a problem in that if our exit deal is good there could well be a queue of other countries wanting similar deals. Having recently been on holiday and spent a considerable amount of time with a number of people from Holland and Germany, I was a bit surprised whe
