Rahandusministeerium nõuab kogu praamihanke tühistamist:

Slothrop's will run the ferry line. We can get the money and ferries; we just need someone to write the proposal for us. It's exactly the kind of thing we ought to be doing - we operate a bookstore for the public good and not at a loss. What better qualification could there be for running Estonia's ferry business? Support us by writing your riigikogulane and telling them: Let Slothrop's run it.
