French want to buy Dover
Dover Harbour is up for sale at £350 million and the French are being advised by the Government it would be a good deal for them. Gordon Brown is trying to raise cash to fill Briatin’s black hole of debt and is selling off UK real estate to help.
Europe’s busiest ferry port is being targetted by Nord-pas-de-Calais regional council which also owns Calais.
Freight traffic is expected to double by 2040.
