Another interesting question would be whether the injection of €45 million by the French Government legal under EU rules ?

I wonder whether the U.K. will complain about “unfair practice”?

Or will any other EU member eg Ireland complain ?

I have my doubts that any challenge will be forthcoming…..

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

UK can bog off as it left the club. They are making their own rules now.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Well I hope they don't go under. They have a share in our Condorferries.com which is the only way to get off this rock.

Seems strange to prop up a ferry company that serves to bring Brits over?

We use DFDS on the Newhaven to Dieppe route to take advantage of the 20% discount if one of the party is aged 60 or over. The booking has to be made by phone [0800 917 1201] to get the discount. Night crossings tend to be cheaper, and for our first m/home trip to Europe, the Dieppe to Newhaven return fare in February will be £75 before discount, £60 net!

You guys don't realise how well off you are for travel. My last return in Sep Gsy to St Malo was £354.00 which included my 15% FT discount.

And you have to reverse down the ramp and park between the lines on the deck even in the dark.
