Did you just watch it on TV? (VRT1)
I did, and thought of the same!

I wonder where the universal value is in that one. Perhaps the cliffs of dover...but the actual channel itself?

I have a feeling the Dover one is just a bit of hype to increase travel to the Calais and Dover Areas. The fact it is being propossed by a Private Company and a regional tourism agency suggests as much. I guess the Channel Tunnel would be an interesting case though.

I can already see the channel tunnel walk popping up if that one gets approved

The Israeli World Heritage Committee has a report on its website where sites with aspirations to be included on the T list are enlisted. Many of them have no chance to make to the list though (at least in my opinion). They include: Tiberias, Safed, Ein Karem, Jaffa, Nazareth as well as some suggestions to cross-boundary nominations like Byzantine desert monasteries, pilgrimage site to Jerusalem and Mekka, port cities of the Levant and the Rift Valley.

This one isn't aspiring to be on the world heritage list, but I'm suprised the ruins of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus (Bodrum, Turkey) aren't on the tentative list. Which was once one of the original 7 wonders of the ancient world.

I think it would qualify, ok there isn't much left of this particular building, but from what I gather it was an unique building, awe-inspiring and gave rise to the word mausoleum.
Also being part of the 7 wonders of the ancient world makes it kinda special (criterion 6)

Batanes in the Philippines is going for the gold
It appears to be a bid based mostly on native cultural appeal, though Spanish history also comes into the equation.
