Labour port sell off plan rejected by Government

Today we had the great news that the previous Labour Government's plan to sell off the Port of Dover to the French or whoever have been axed by the Government.

For the past three years we have campaigned tirelessly to reverse Gordon Brown's madcap decision to put our port up for sale. This marks the fulfillment of a key election pledge to save our Port. Dame Vera Lynn provided a much needed boost to us all we she came and joined the campaign!

For our community the Port of Dover is the gateway to our nation and should be forever England. The very idea that the port should be sold off was a desperate and out of touch move by Labour. Think of the port and the white cliffs and you think of freedom and victory over tyranny.

This magnificent victory is the best Christmas present the people of Dover could have. It shows what united communities can achieve. This decision marks the first stage in the plan to make Dover a community run People's Port and a jewel in the crown of the nation once more.
