Anyone who knows anything about how the Conservatives conduct business should not be surprised by this news. Yes it is shocking, yes it is irresponsible to give such a contract to a shipping company with hardly any ships, but bear in mind the Thatcher and Major years, especially the rail privatisation when assets were broken up and then sold off. Public or private ownership was not so much important as quickly making cash and shedding responsibility. It was not for nothing that Healey once said that the Conservatives did Arthur Daley economics, so there is a phrase for how the government plan to conduct business with regards to a No Deal Brexit. Behaving like Spivs!
