If in doubt, make stuff up

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Mirror picking up on a random tweet and running a story on it. Red tops have never exactly been known for their journalistic skills but this is their level today.

    People still buy this shite.
  2. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.
  3. A local boat charter company tweet may be classed as 'random', but the Isles of Scilly twitter account?

    The Isles of Scilly twitter account had the message: "All visits to HMS Sutherland have been cancelled today due to weather conditions, but Water Carnival and lifeboat visit still going ahead!

    A Royal Navy spokesperson said: “Regrettably a ceremony due to take place on the shore was cancelled because sea conditions meant personnel could not be safely transported from the ship.”

    A local boat charter company tweeted: "HMS Echo can land liberty men (sailors allowed to go ashore) but Sutherland can't land sunset party?

    I can't remember the last time I bought a newspaper.

    My thoughts on them were formed many years ago by the output of so called journalists covering Scottish football.

    I consider them mostly comics, particularly the red tops, pushing propaganda at the whim of their owners and political classes.

    The internet scares the shit out of them.
