Labour plan to privatise Port of Dover

Yesterday Gordon Brown and the Labour Party announced plans to privatise the Port of Dover.  The Dover Express has a detailed report on the plan. And the Government has issued a detailed paper on its plans.

This will come as a real shock to many as Labour gave a solemn pledge at the last election not to do this. Labour literature carried the photo of Dover's Labour MP (shown right) saying how they promised not to sell the port. But now it seems Labour are going ahead anyway.

You can't believe a thing they say any more.

Nothing surprises me now . How hypocritical, they are supposed to be a party against privitasation and there they are selling off our port.
