ONCE again the corporate communication manager of Condor Ferries has had the unenviable task of providing a ‘smoke and mirrors’ response to a letter published in your newspaper. This time it’s to avoid answering the questions posed by John Schute (Open Lines, 23 September) about the ownership and control of Condor Ferries. She tells us that Condor Ferries was established in Guernsey in 1964, and that they ‘are proud to be a Guernsey company’. Well, I certainly don’t dispute that Condor may be a Guernsey-registered company, and has its formal meetings here, but this is not at all the same thing as who has ownership and control, as any accountancy student could tell you. So anybody can see that they are just sidestepping the question.
