"Well if you can be a ferry company without any ferries then why can't you be an AI company without AI?"

There's such a thing as leasing. I wonder how many ferry companies actually running ferry services are without ferries on this basis. Quite a few, I suspect. Ditto airlines without aircraft.

I wonder if this is a successful ploy by the ERG made credible by Grayling's involvement. No, of course we won't need extra ferry sailings and extra ports to handle them; it's all going swimmingly.
