Ferry Interesting

Hurrah! Today must surely be the day when I finally get to book my trip to Boulogne-sur-Mer on the new Euroferries service! Their website promises that: 'Fares, online ticket reservations and further information will appear' on the site from the week commencing 16 March. And as nought has appeared so far this week, today must be the day of the big launch of the big cat!

I'm sure the Mayor of Boulogne will be putting out the bunting and chilling down the Krug, ready to welcome the foremost resident of the Millionaires' Playground to Le Playground des Millionaires!

This is about as likely to happen as NASA offering trips to Mars from Manston.

ECR you are not reading the Euroferries web site as Euroferries intended!
Where does it state that its March 2009?

So 'Fares, online ticket reservations and further information will appear on www.euroferries.co.uk week commencing 16th March' must mean 'further information' will appear sometime this week? Blimey, its Friday afternoon and no doubt the bloke who updates the website is off tomorrow?

What a cynical bunch of losers you lot are. Of course the webpage will be updated by Sunday morning... and of course the ship is coming to Ramsgate any moment now. I hear the hull, bar and front bit are being flown in by one of the 11 British Airways World Cargo flights coming into Manston this week. The back bit and the rest is being flown in next week. 40,000 jobs are being created in assembling it and pushing it to the harbour. I know this because my local councillor has told me.

Pigs might fly?

I thought it was in the Canaries having a spray paint and general clean-up?

Don't be silly Planespotter, what would be the point in spraying it in the Canaries when it will be all dirty by the time it reached here?????

There are currently 2000 Boat-sprayers on the scrapheap in Thanet as there are 39 Jumbo-Jet pilots still (thanks to Infratil failing to get the BA Business).

It is definately going to be sprayed in Thanet, I know because a councillor told me!

If you drink the water in Thanet you will live to 120. I know because a councillor told me.

Thousands of jobs are coming to Thanet thanks to our special relationship with China. I know because a councillor told me.
