Is It The Final Voyage For Peel's Public Money Scam?

There have been further developments surrounding the "Cruise Wars" saga ( & ). It emerged earlier this week that Southampton's civic leaders have held meetings with ministers & mandarins in Whitehall ( ) over Peel's brazen plan to finance a private project with public money. The BBC report notes: "The government is taking a new look at Liverpool's application, which had previously been rejected. "It needs to approve the plan because a £9m EU grant helped pay for its cruise liner terminal, which cost £20m." The "final decision" on this interminable farce will, the report states, be made "within weeks".

The Terminal should have cost 10 million and in my opinion the European Grant Money was used incorrectly. How come Southampton get a Terminal for half the price we paid.
