It worked!

In Calais, where tens of thousands flocked after being urged by the Foreign Office to head for the Channel ports over the weekend, the scene was tranquil for the first time in days, says The Times. P&O Ferries said it expected to carry only a few hundred foot passengers to Dover today, compared with 7,000 on Wednesday.

Obviously, the Murdoch deterrent plan worked.
