Dame Vera Lynn joins fight against port sell off

Dame Vera Lynn is reported in today's Telegraph as opposing Gordon Brown's plan to sell off our borders.

She is quoted as saying:

"The port should absolutely stay in British hands. It always has been and it should always be. It means so much to the boys who have sailed away from it and come back."

"How could they even think about selling it off? It is not right. Dover is part of England. It simply can't be part of anywhere else."

And . . . as I predicted yesterday, the Government is denying that our port will be sold to the French. Well, they would, wouldn't they? This is, of course, the same Government that promised us a referendum on Europe and that gave us a solemn promise the port would not be sold at the last election. You just can't believe a word they say.
