The Spirit of Britain

It was announced by P+O ferries that the Pride of Dover would stand down from Dover-Calais service on the 15th December 2010. Her last commercial crossing will be at 23:55. She is due to depart for Dunkerque on the 16th December where she will lay up pending a decision on her future.

The replacement is 'The Spirit of Britain' and will operate on the Dover to Calais route from January 2011 and has space for up to 1,750 passengers. It weighs 49000 tonnes and is the largest ship to ferry ever to sail the dover to calais service.

I would like to know what Winston Churchill would say about one of worlds largest floating duty free shopping complexes carrying the name 'Spirit of Britain'!!
