From an article in tomorrow’s Guardian…
«One of the companies contracted by the UK government to charter ferries in the event of a no-deal Brexit does not own any ships, has not previously operated a ferry service and is not planning to do so until close to the UK’s scheduled departure date from the European Union, it has emerged.»
Okay, this can only be true. In no one’s imagination could that be invented.
«Concerns have been raised about Seaborne Freight, which was awarded a £13.8m contract to operate freight ferries from Ramsgate to the Belgian port of Ostend»
Okay, now can I follow the money?
Paul Messenger, a Conservative county councillor in Ramsgate,
questioned whether the government had carried out sufficient checks on
the firm, telling the BBC: “It has no ships and no trading history so
how can due diligence be done?
“Why choose a company that never moved a single truck in their entire history and give them £14m? I don’t understand the logic of that.”
Nor would anyone…. unless you follow the money.
The company, the only British one in the list, is owned by three brexit financiers who only founded the company after the brexit vote in 2016.
What could possibly be wrong with that?
A parody of a parody.
You do realise that the Brits consider the Spanish to be both incompetent and corrupt, don’t you?
Gibralter should be fun.
