Just what are we defending?

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 money's dried up for aircraft carriers Cutting back on strategic anti something thingamabobs. Fewer nuclear weapons. A thousand fewer Battle Tanks--- About to lose another frigate.

    Does it matter?
    Just what are we defending?
    The landed gentry no longer have anything to defend--All National Trust now. My Council House roof has been repaired. The country is bankcrupt so what are our soldiers losing their lives to defend?

    The Falklands are different. There might be oil there, so that will be somewhere stoutly in which to place our miltary might.

    Mind you some caution seems sensible.
    Remember The GLC Leader, Comrade Livingstone declaring London a Nuclear Free Zone. So far as I am aware the forces of evil listened and London has not been subsequently subjected to Gamma Radiation. That's newt divining for you.

  8. It's amazing the stories of foxes encroaching into urban areas and scaring the local population (especially jumping into beds...). Something must be done about these vile creatures ...
