Condor is to blame for lack of day trips

WITH reference to the letter in the Guernsey Press of 8 June, I must take issue with the response from Condor’s spin doctor Helen Day regarding the problems surrounding day trips between the islands. Ms Day states that an inter-island passenger-only ferry was unable to happen due to ‘reasons outside of our control’. I’m sorry, but from where I’m looking from, the reasons day trips are few and far between nowadays are entirely down to Condor.
