Probably old news by now , but just read on MSM news that Eurostar is in shit state and want UK to assist in keeping it running....except the UK gov sold off its stake to Eurostar in 2015, and has no stake in it , but the French gov (through SNCF) owns 55% of the company
Eurostar fury: Boris Johnson told to bail out company to avoid 'dire consequences' for U AstrozenK]
Uk unions up in arms because 3000 jobs could be at risk....... French anger at us not helping them out, maybe they should take a closer look at themselves .... they and generally the EU as a whole,( but the French seem to be the most vociferous) have been absolute bastards with UK over such things as imports of shellfish for example tariffs in the Irish sea, etc. etc.
maybe now they are starting to understand what may be about to happen
This has been rumbling for some tine
Rail operator Eurostar is in trouble but the real question is who will bail it out–France or the U.K.?
SNCF owns 55%, 30% is owned by an institutional Canadian fund manager, Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec (CDPQ). 10% is owned by Britain-based fund Hermes Infrastructure, and 5% by the Belgian railway SNCB.
Time to tell the French '' Go f**k yourself ''
