anodyne Lil

#1
A no holds barred Diamond Lil's is necessary in order for RR not to become complacent.
Short of breaking the law-- anything should go.
Libel
Demanding money with menaces
Blackmail
None of these;but calling the RN hierarchy inefficient or worse Drawing attention to the fact that our Defence Ministers do not have one hour of military service between them and they are inept. That the navy is currently grotesquely overburdened with Warrant Officers and Lt Cmds and above.
All this would be grist to the mill and make for interesting and entertaining reading?
Suitable title?

Gary, why not call it "Diamond Lil's" that's exactly what Lil's is for, have a read of Doorman's Rules see if it fits the bill!
But it's becoming increasingly somnambulent - making. Little or no cut-and-thrust debate . Little or nil provocation. Few or-no hairs standing up on ones neck.
Singularly moribund I would say.
MOD's permitting Let's liven it up.

But from what I have seen previously anything contentious gets wiped. If you MODS are as ambivalent as you pretend to be then anything short of the law should be permitted. That is not so and has not been so for the past 6 months I have been looking.
You have removed items I thought provocative and interesting for reasons best known to yourselves.
There perhaps hangs the problem.

GaryM: You quote me then say "...you MODS..." as if I am part of the problem? I am no a Mod, nor would I want to.

Have you highlighted your concerns with any of the Mods concerned, or notified Good_CO of it? Or perhaps you can be 'the enemy within' and volunteer to become a Mod yourself? Then again maybe you just want to sit in the corner and drip about it instead, without coming up with a solution!

To be honest, this topic has been discussed to death in the past, and I am surprised that someone who only joined RR 10 days ago (after lurking for 6 months) can really be that bothered about Mod edits... :?

If it has been discussed to the death in the past why on earth has it not been acted upon. . It's true I've been "lurking" A pejorative term, for half a year but things have not improved. If you know the answers then. pray, let us have them.

That depends how you define "contentious". Is this contentious?

Sir Robin Javrin GCB KCVO who has recently accepted for himself the Antigua and Barbuda 25th Anniversery Medal and argued that he should be permitted to wear that mounted alongside his Imperial GCB and KCVO.
The H&D Committee agreed. The Malaysian's Government Malaya Award has been denied the wearing alongside of Imperial ones.

Tut tut!
Let Sir Robin have your views on such rank predudice
Or, how about this?

Have just read that the newly created Labour peer Lord Alan West was court martialled a few years back for losing highly classified documents on a Berkshire canal towpath. Since he is a Junior Minister responsible for security issues --Well.
Not sure if it's true however. Do you have accurate details?
Or, perhaps this?

The number of official dinners 1SL and 2SL attended at a cost to the public purse ,is currently a FOIA request, for financial year 2006/2007.
In your considered opinion, Do their dining reputation add to the Royal Navy's rather tarnished image --Or detract from it?
Or, maybe this?

How long will it be before we stop dressing our junior sailors like rich children from the Edwardian period? Canada has stopped South Africa too-- but the UK ? Light years behind
Sadly didn't see those but they are no longer featured. These are the sort of articles it seems to me there should be more of . Were there answers to any of the questions posed. That would make interesting reading.

Gary,

Get stuck in fella. Stand your ground & be prepared to receive as much as you give, without getting upset & announcing in a melodramatic flounce "I'm Leaving".

If you resort to the latter, I'll bid ye "farethewell" now.

Otherwise I look forward to a verbal joust (assuming I do not whole-heartedly agree with you)

Not nearly as overburdened as RumratioN is with your alternative IDs, uninformed opinion on Service matters and misplaced grammar and spelling lessons.
