    Cheaper and far better armed than our rather poor showing too.

    Glad someone does. They like to light up the EW spectrum, making things uncomfortable for some of us.

    I wonder if it is worrying for Norman that if there were a price on his head, it would only be twopence.

    When a Class has been around for 20 or so years, I suppose they sort of grow on you. I'm sure they've loads of "stretch" left in them.
