Clash of the cruise ships

News that Liverpool is to press ahead with a cruise ship turnaround facility has sparked much debate in the pages of the Southampton Daily Echo. It seems the good folk of Hampshire are terrified their pre-eminence as the UK port of departure will be threatened by the emerging attraction of the River Mersey. Are they not content that Cunard defected to their little town on the south coast many years ago?In any event, much of the comment in the Daily Echo is from Scousers – not sure whether that’s the Mersey diaspora or if locals here are avid readers of their paper. The rather limp response from one  yokel was he that didnt know that scousers could read and write – ouch!
