Ferry bad news

Another one hits the dust

According to a story in “The Connexion” today, LD Lines are about to pull the plug on their Dover Boulogne fast ferry service.

Personally I never used it.  I thought it seemed expensive and unreliable, and I found the timetable inconvenient.

Perhaps they’ll have another go at it when tourism from UK to France picks up after the Gordon Brown recession has passed – maybe in about 30 years, then.
