Camoron's speech to the Lord Mayor's Banquet:

Quote: Britain will remain a "major player in the world" despite the rise of new economic powers, David Cameron has said in a set-piece foreign policy speech.

The UK remained a "great economic power" and there was no reason its military power would diminish, he said.

No shit Dave, you should be on the stage with the rest of the comedians!

After CVA 01 being dropped by Healy in the 60's through-decks were the navy's cheaky answer, they tried to paint an orange banana. It took another two decades but it worked.
