So typical of everything this government does, someone else is to blame. "THE Royal Navy has been accused of carrying out a discreet purge of senior figures involved in the fiasco over the arrest by Iranian Revolutionary Guards of 15 British sailors and Marines. Those involved in the navyâ€™s humiliation have left their high-profile jobs as part of an attempt, it is claimed, to sweep away any reminder of the debacle, regarded as one of the biggest embarrassments to befall the fleet since Admiral Byng failed to relieve Minorca in 1756. He was executed for his incompetence. " http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article5299272.ece It's probably just an excuse to save more money.
