Really, what market? If it was there, the sailings would already exist.

It might mean there are some good deals to be had over the next couple of months for those who wish to book a last minute trip. I suppose some freight might also switch westwards, either to trial alternative routes or to avoid Calais if the French customs officers keep up their protests. Ed.

That is where the one plus could be, if subsidised crossings can be sold to some who use Dover it could be win win but existing customers might complain if the subsidy went on to long.

Eurotunnel's court case was not pursued because the government gave in. How long before Stena, P&O or a freight shipping company picks it up and puts in a claim of their own ?  Monday ? 

I was premature. It's in the news today. P&O are now suing the government because they didn't get a slice of the cake.

There's a French company who must be hoping nobody thinks they are anything to do with Mr Grayling's hairbrained scheme.

 
 
 

They did put a statement out at the time to make it clear they were nothing to do with the fantasy claim of starting a ferry route from Ramsgate.
