OK - bored now.

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. Well, I am as pleased as the next chap (stand fast republicans) but it is less than 24 hours since the happy event and we STILL have wall to wall coverage of banal baby/Royal facts and figures. For instance, I shit you not, some bint has just informed us that the baby's father is a helicopter pilot based in Angelsey!

    Sad to say that the adverts are more interseting than the programme content at the moment. And the (online) newspapers are just as bad.

    Talk about kicking the arse out of something!

    Yes I do have an ON/OFF switch and also a life! Just wanted to make a point!

    There is always the shopping channel, DVDs, internet porn ( get it while it lasts).

    Like it or not, much of the world, whether in Her Majesty's realm or not are interested so if you wanted to watch your normal daytime TV, tough shit. We don't go bananas when the heir to a foreign throne is married or has a sprog but others do for our Royals. What is not to feel good about?

    God save the Queen.

  3. Come on - it can't just be me!

    I do love the feel good factor, what it mean to UK plc and all the rest and am very happy etc. But the media coverage in parts has been more than banal! Now it is the feeding frenzy about he poor little mite's name!

  4. It's not just you. I'm pleased that mother and child are safe and well as I'd be for every mother and child.But that's as far as it goes .I'm not glued to the box with baited breath ;-then I'm a lost cause, A lefty, atheist, republican with little time for a family of interbred [stand fast Kate and Fergie] pea brained Germans who give each other medals. Stand by for incoming.

    Not for me it won't. I'm getting a union flag tattooed over my entire body. I've not slept since the birth because i've been shouting my patriotism through the streets, surviving on British things like Gin & Tonic and curries. I'm also hoping i'll get another medal because of this splendid occassion.
     
  6. Look on the brightside and rejoice! ... it keeps the window lickers and Primark shoppers glued to the TV thus off the streets!

    I wasn't going to rise but; interbred? Prince Philip and the Queen are third cousins. In a less well documented 'family' you could marry a third cousin and not know it.

    As for pea brained; flying aircraft, navigating, speaking fluent French are not skills found in pea brains. Rambling semi-literate signature blocks are.

    And let us not forget Prince Philip's ability to make me laugh my cock off with his witty remarks that seem to annoy other mere mortals. He knows what he's doing that one.

    Prince Philip ( praises be upon his name ) had a none too shabby wartime career. His stars aren't for show and he was selected for promotion to Commander before the wife got a better job and he had to make do with being promoted to Admiral of the Fleet. His uncle Lord Louis made 5* 1SL and CDS in the days when we had a massive navy and his Grandad was 1 SL. A pretty good pedigree that suggests that Prince Philip may have made 5* the long way. Not a pea brain then.

    For those interested, here's Philip's war service in a nutshell (Source - Wikipedia);

    Not bad for an inbred pea brain.

  12. And on the Yacht he used to pitch in with the hands to rig/derig the canvas mini-swimming pool. :salute:


    (I think our Jesse has scuttled off to his shed for a while...)
     
  13. Depends where you get your news from.
    I was watching Al Jezera and their main news was the killings in Egypt, the situation in Syria, etc etc etc. They made do with a ticker tape scroll about the royal birth, pretty different to what the Beeb were pumping out.
     
  14. Totally unrepentant just off to put up my autographed photographs of Arthur Scargill and Tony Benn.

    Power to the people.
