Seems fair enough, a bomb could crack the mirrors, where would the club swingers be then?

I do enjoy the quotes from the MoD spokesperson...
"A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said: 'At a time when the country's threat level reaches critical, it is standard routine procedure across defence to close non-essential areas."

Slightly ambiguous about it being closed, my guess it was closed to non RN personnel.

Ok, it's not a real newspaper and they're probably not real journalists but crikey...

Staggers the imagination!
D'you know, I'd click that but for three things:

1. It's the Pompey Liar. They ******* hate Jack

2. It's the Pompey Liar website. It takes three minutes to load 'The News' over all the rest of the dogshit clickbait.

3. It's the Pompey Liar journalists. They know absolutely nothing, about nothing. They are dead good at giving Hairdresser/Nail Artist of the Year awards out, every ******* week.

I have a very tart email printed out at home which bluntly tells the Portsmouth Evening News that the MoD will sue them if they continue to report untruths about the Naval Base.

Point taken, but like it or not the Pompey News is a real newspaper. And it carries a fair amount of positive news (no doubt inaccurate!) about the Royal Navy:

It has it's own moments of Navy bashing, in amidst spectacularly poorly researched (and written articles) and some crazy articles stirred up by locals politicians keen to see Portsmouth win over Devonport.

News? it's lead article today, amidst hurricanes, earthquakes and the NK saga is the introduction of parking zones.......

Playing Devil's Advocate I would suggest that if they can't get local news accurate they should stay well clear of worldwide events:)
