White Cliffs of Dover to be sold to the French to help reduce Government’s debt

Vanessa Allen had news:

For generations Dover has stood as an indomitable symbol of Britain’s freedom and independence. The town, with its white cliffs, port and sprawling castle stood at the very edge of the nation’s frontier with the Continent. But now part of

that proud history is up for sale and the leading bidder is revealed as the former age-old enemy – France.

A sale of the Port of Dover, Europe’s busiest ferry port, could net up to £350million for the Treasury. Its harbour board applied to the Transport Secretary for voluntary privatisation last month.

It’s Beachy Head.

Which is only about 70 miles away.

And the Mail should know this as they used much the same picture in this 2008 article about Spitfires and Hurricanes flying over the East Sussex coast:

Shocks away!
