In this latest developement, Brittany Ferries released the following statement:

“Brittany Ferries will carefully consider this latest development in no-deal Brexit planning. We do have flexibility across our fleet operations, through western channel ports of Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth. And of course we were one of the companies awarded a contract last December. But we need to consider carefully what schedule changes will mean for planned freight and passenger operations this autumn and, as a consequence, what additional freight capacity we may be able to guarantee.”

Looks like Brittany Ferries are keeping an open mind for the time being. No Deal seems an increased possibility this time, so I expect these services are likely to be required. Could the problems on Pont Aven influence BF's decision whether to agree to No Deal plans Tony?

Well the obvious solution for all of these intravenous drugs that might be in short supply (like Merlot) is a pipeline. Apparently they are currently installing an undersea cable from near Ouistreham to the UK so if you get in quick there should be no problem running a pipe alongside it. Better still, make it a double direction pipe and you could supply the French with freshly brewed Yorkshire tea on tap which would help the balance of trade. Ed. 

Do you really think that the  French  would go for limitless Yorkshire tea?  Surely it would need to be  Lemon Flavoured and that would be “ never  Appen in  Arrogate” the local council would never allow it.

The 47th Royal Marines secured Port en Bessin as it was envisaged an Pipeline Under the Ocean  “ PLUTO” would terminate there, this never ever happened, Fuel was bought ashore but but only from tankers anchored outside the port. Thus driving  the war effort and advancing the front forward, and keeping, for obvious reasons munitions bought ashore through the Mulberry’s  and fuel apart.

i’m in favour of a WPLUTO Wine Pipeline Under the Ocean idea, it could be a great success, even Boris might approve, if only to make a mess on somebody else’s sofa , Not quite sure what WTO tariff it would come under though! 

The farmers of St Pol might not be so  keen. As it would badly damage one of there bottom lines. But then again that’s nothing a spot of fire 🔥and direct action could not fix.

😅😂😂

I think it would be appropriate and helpful to cite/link the source of quotes.

It's a Brittany Ferries Statement, as it says. There's only one place to get them.
