A TRANS­PORT Min­is­ter from the United King­dom has awarded a £13.8 mil­lion con­tract to a com­pany to char­ter ex­tra fer­ries in Dover to ease con­ges­tion, but there’s just one small prob­lem with the plan - they have no ships.

Bri­tish politi­cian Chris Grayling said he didn’t see what the big deal was, stat­ing: “It’s a new start-up busi­ness, gov­ern­ment is sup­port­ing new Bri­tish busi­ness and there is noth­ing wrong with that.”

Let’s hope the com­pany can se­cure some ships pronto, oth­er­wise it will make for some very long ca­noe rides.
