Ministers set to dredge historic Ramsgate harbour so it can become ‘second Dover’ in No Deal Brexit

MINISTERS have drawn up secret plans to dredge a historic Georgian harbour and turn it into a “second Dover” in case of a No Deal Brexit, The Sun can reveal.

Ramsgate in Kent is set to be excavated by diggers so the port can handle large cargo ships and ferries.

But officials fear the plans will disrupt the genteel tourist destination by turning it into an industrial hub in a matter of months.

The project is set to be overseen by gaffe-prone Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, who’s been accused of causing chaos on the country’s railways, roads and airports.

One Whitehall insider told The Sun: “It’s getting people really worried – you’ll have massive HGVs going up and down this historic harbour.

“It could be a massive f***-up. We’re all imagining Chris Grayling at the helm of the digger.”

Ramsgate is located just 20 miles away from Dover

It emerged last month that the Government was considering expanding Ramsgate to cope with possible disruption at Dover, which is 20 miles away.

But now Whitehall and Cabinet sources have admitted that the plans would require dredging the harbour, because it’s currently too shallow to accommodate the freight ships which bring a large proportion of Britain’s imports from Europe.

The proposals are likely to be ditched

Politicians are wrong about what the public want

So the, out of touch political elite are trying to say that the public would be happy to cough up an extra £2000 a year, per household to prop up the NHS? 
Advertisers website Wrong! While many British families struggle to make ends meet, the political elite thinks that people will be glad to fund a failing business that is being run into the ground because of their failed policies on how the NHS is managed?

No. This just shows that we have monkeys running our country! Many people on Facebook have shared the above post on various pages; a large number of those people don't even do politics. If our political elite were more than just yes men weighed down by the chains of political correctness, they would see that the people of Britain have had enough. 
Ever increasing taxation to try and fix their mistakes?

Has the Supreme Court handed Boris Johnson a Brexit escape route?

The Supreme Court’s judgment is the latest constitutional perversion after the Benn act. But ironically it may assist the Government in achieving its objective of Britain leaving the EU by 31 October, without having to seek an extension to the Article 50 process.
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
Yet the Benn Act manifestly contradicts this principle. It dictates how the Government must conduct negotiations with a foreign body, the EU, to the extent of obliging the Prime Minister to write specifically worded letters and accept whatever extension it offers when certain conditions are not met. In the situation when t…
