  • Commented on I ain't dead
    1 x Landing ship, Logistics. (I think the assault ships are the closest remaining comparison.) The closest remaining comparison to the Landing Ship Logistics would be the Bay Class Landing Ships, operated like the preceding LSLs by the Royal Fleet...
  • Commented on I ain't dead
    How many parties are in Parliament - 4? 5? (I don't remember if UKIP still has any seats). 9, plus the Speaker of the House (independent by constitutional convention) and Sinn Féin who won't take the oath of allegiance and...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    The UK isn't going with the Apple-Google system, they want a nice centralised database that they can mine "for research purposes" (and no, the data won't be deleted and you won't have the right to ask for it to be...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas"
    Nuclear energy actually works, it produces large amounts of electricity on demand to meet existing needs AIUI almost the entire fleet of commercial nuclear reactors worldwide don't do "on demand", in between shutdowns they run at 100%. Partially this is...

  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE, Part 2
    When did NATO promise not to expand eastwards? Who did they make this promise to? What treaty did they make this promise in? What where the exact words used? Who made the promise? (The NATO Secretary General? A joint communique...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The escape route (FCVO) for the Queen, if not necessarily the rest of us, would be a vote of no confidence in Parliament. If Boris survives said vote then clearly he has the confidence of the house and should be...
