    Brexit aside we've always needed more ferries, the delays in and out of Dover are constant problems. We have always been too dependant on Dover maybe that will change now. The Government pulled the plug on Seaborne when it's big Irish backer pulled out, hope there was no pressure from the Irish Government.

      Doesn't matter how many ferries you have if the wagons can't drive off them and through customs.
      The whole point was that the extra services won't be going through Dover, which is where the worst customs bottleneck would be.

        I think it's more of a potential issue with Eurotunnel, as seems to have been highlighted by the news today.

          Massive investment going into Liverpool superport...less goods will be coming from Europe from now on!

            Seaborne did not have ANY ships.

              Which was actually very handy, because Ramsgate harbour wasn't deep enough to take the ones they planned to use.
              When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
              Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

                Dover and Folkestone will continue to be the busiest ferry ports because it is the shortest crossing to the continent, and therefore the cheapest crossing. That isn't going to change.
                Other ferry crossings are already available, if there was more demand for these crossings there would already be more ferries operating on those routes.

                  Perhaps, but I doubt that there will be any significant change.
                  It's likely that more goods from other parts of the world will come directly from other parts of the world, rather than via Europe, but we already receive goods from all over the world and it is unlikely that there will be a huge amount of change.
                  There are a number of reasons why the majority of global trade is between countries that are close to each other, and in part this is a result of the ease with which goods can be moved and the costs involved with doing so (transport costs, not import/export duties).

                    It seems to me there is a lot of unconscious humour here, the latest one for me is...........

                    I'm wondering how many of you voted for brexit and would you change your mind if you had the chance ? . I didn't vote and I still wouldn't be sure if I would choose leave or remain if we had another chance...

                    I bet you guys know what I mean by pilot error.

                    It's when your tenant calls you out saying something is faulty when they don't know how to use it. Today the lady who couldn't open her Washer Dryer a couple of months ago called to tell me that the heater in her spare room wasn't working....

                    I do. However he was desperate for somewhere to live, and I had my hands full with another flat, so did not want two vacant ones.

                    My friend just visited me at home, and tells me he took his old 2nd hand fridge freezer over to my flat. There's nowhere for it to go in the kitchen, and actually...
