Independent: "France Sunk By Royal Navy Again After Paying €100m For UK Warships"


"The Emperor Napoleon would be spinning in his tomb. So might be Admiral Pierre-Charles-Jean-Baptiste-Silvestre de Villeneuve, the man who lost the Battle of Trafalgar.

In 2005, precisely two centuries after the battle, the French government took the first of a series of decisions that led accidentally to the French taxpayer subsidising two giant warships for the Royal Navy."

That would be payback for hijacking the "Horizon Frigate project", pick any Joint Defence Project, then, makes a change for them to be out of pocket.

At risk of appearing ungrateful, xenophobic or disrespectful, it's good to see the wine-swilling surrender monkeys have paused setting fire to our exported livestock, refunded a fraction of the EU agricultural subsidies that UK has paid them over several decades and finally compensated us for a couple of liberations they owed us.

Burp, merci mon ami.

Old news.

We almost ended up with a basically French design with RN add-ons. It only fell to pieces because the governments fell out with France pushing too hard for all 3 hulls to be built in France.
