    SPB will be a busy boy if he's unlucky enough to be up there. :p

    'The Strathclyde Police memo warns: “Given the length of time personnel will have spent prior to these dates – April 9 to 11 – at sea, there is the possibility that incidents of drink-related unsociable behaviour may occur'

    ?????

    They will be in Faslane from the 9th to the 11th. Prior to this, they will have been at sea. In the case of some of the skimmers, perhaps for as much as two weeks (that is the mean time between jollies, isn't it?).

    “It will be the first time they’ve had a beer and seen pretty girls in weeks so they might go wild.â€

    really?
     
  5. Bit of an overreaction by The Herald!

    Surprised Salmond hasn't got a few words in too.

    I'm sure drink-related incidents will be an unwelcome novelty in Glasgow.
     
  7. What's new? Ships and submarines have been gathering at Faslane and Glasgow twice per year (three times per year until fairly recently) for Exercise 'JOINT WARRIOR', formerly 'NEPTUNE WARRIOR', formerly JMC (Joint Maritime Course) for as long as I can remember.

    If they've got any sense they'll get on the first train to Edinburgh. Glasgow's a sh1thole.

    Thanks for clearing that up, I was a bit confused. Aye, I was usually ready for a few scoops after a couple of weeks at sea although I don't remember too many headlines along the lines of "Pembroke Dock prepares to batten down the hatches ready for the arrival of HMS Fox"

    No probs. You are merely serving to illustrate just how badly written this piece is. Journalists are better than matelots at keeping their dits free of unhelpful facts

    Hmm, matelots kick off in Scotland? God forbid - they might cause tens of pounds' worth of damage... 8O :twisted:

    Pretty girls?! You've never been to Faslane have you, PP..? :shock: :wink:

    I suppose if incidents occur they will be dealt with effectively by the Strathclyde Police. After all the only thing Royal Navy policemen are capable of locking up are internet forum threads :wink:

    Have a nice day

  17. Prudent time to invest in the clap pill market I think !

  19. you've obviously not been to the good part of glasgow. . .















    Wait, there is no good part. But to be honest, edinburgh isnt much better.
