A Department for Transport spokesperson has confirmed the Government has terminated a contract with Seaborne Freight to run a regular ferry service from Ramsgate in Kent to Ostend in Belgium if there is a ‘no-deal’ Brexit

Grayling. Least competent cabinet minister in history? Well, he does mix with some insignificant people?

And that’s in a universe where Iain Duncan Smith exists! Ouch!

No Irish backer?

The Department of Transport said it decided to axe the deal after the company’s Irish backer pulled out. The government says it is in “advanced talks” to find another ferry firm. Responding to the cancelled contract, Labour has called on Transport Secretary Chris Grayling to resign or be sacked, describing him as “the worst secretary of state ever”.

More Chris Grayling. The gift that keeps on giving. Speaking in January, he said “The reality is that this has been looked at very carefully by a team of civil servants who have done due diligence on the company and have reached a view they can deliver.”
