    Here it is

    What is needed is more competition on the Eastern Channel, not less.

    Well done to the UK competition commission on this one

    I know about the risk to jobs etc but this was never fair. The solution is to move to a different route at a guess

    P&O and DFDS are not on a level playing field when trying to compete etc.

    There's quite a lot to this!

    Do you remember when the channel tunnel was first proposed it was stated nobody would pay the price they would have to charge to cross the channel. Now it is stated Eurotunnel will have a too bigger monopoly because they bought 3 ships from a company going out of business.

    Now was that the media that hyped that first statement that has been proved so spectacularly wrong? :RollEyes:
