If BF go under, we are scuppered, tunnel is not good for us, I thought I read or seen somewhere that the French government pumped a load of money as a rescue plan into BF?

Rubber dinghy. And the UK government will foot the bill for the return journey back to France.

Well I have signed the online petition, but nothing happened. I thought you usually got some form of acknowledgement, but in my case zilch, the screen remained the same. I clicked another couple of times, but no change and now don't know if I've been unsuccessful, or signed three times!

Done. Not that we need BF but friends do as do my holiday home neighbours.

Looks like they’ve been saved I’ve just seen something on Twitter

They could try reducing their prices a bit. We are travelling back at the end of October. We were flying but the family prefer we drive so have to suck it up. We will have a new grandson by then so its sensitive. Anyway DFDS £116.00 return, cabins 20 something . Brittany £400. No brainer, unless you have more money than sense really. Its only 4 hours of your life.

You are making a slightly unfair comparison. OK BF is dearer but they do not operate on the same routes as DFDS.

For a £260 difference in price, even going out of one's way is more than likely going to save some money.

Never used them, but I have signed for the benefit of others.

I will admit I was tempted not to sign in the hope that they went out of business and a further nail in the coffin of UK Brexit import of normal foodstuff would result. I decided that would just be selfish and nasty. Why should I descend to BJ's level?
Sorry to disappoint but very little of BF's profit is from freight.
