How will the new owners run the company? Will services be cut and will local jobs be at risk?
I find all this rhetoric crazy when you consider the last owners spent £70m on the company and the new owners know investment in Portsmouth is the only way to see good growth and a healthy return.
Politicians gave up the right to have a say in the ferry service when it was privatised in 1984.
Unless the government decides that ferries should not be run in a similar manner to our buses or trains, they should pipe down. Rightly or wrongly, it’s private enterprise.
