Plymouth to lose Gens to Portsmouth

#1
Yesterday in Prime Minsters questions, Gary Streeter the MP for Plymouth asked the PM:
Following the governments recent Naval Base review, there is widespread concern at the Naval Base in Plymouth, that ships which are currently base ported in Plymouth might well be moved in the next few years to Portsmouth.
Can the PM reassure the workforce or Naval Base today, their reward for generations of dedicated service to this nations security, will not simply be the death by a thousand cuts.
Gordon replied:
As he knows, Plymouth will refit the Trident Submarine. Plymouth has a hugh amount of work for the years ahead.
A massive amount of investment has gone into Plymouth and I can assure him of our commitmen to the future of Plymouth Dockyard, and I think he will realise that is only possible because we are spending more on defence every year.
We will continue to do so and that depends on there being a healty economy.
It will be seen that he never gave that assurance of Gens and that the only inference can be that General Service ships will be moving to Portsmouth.
Of course he had to make part of the speach political - ******.

PMQs - The very last question.

Yeah I saw that, and it didn't fill me with confidence to be honest.
Although IF the move of the ASRM squadrons into the yard goes ahead, some of the ships at least will have to remain. Hopefully along with their escorts.
Which would be T22's and T23's :D
So, thats that sorted then, Pompey can have whats left of the H ships and everything else will stay at Guzz :)

Should any one be surprised? This was muted during the (longer than expected) base port review. Rumour at that time was all Surface fleet to Portsmouth with the exception of Amphibious ships, FOST remains GUZZ, all Submarines to be base ported Faslane. All Submarine refits and DED's to Guzz. Allegedly this was the only option that would ensure retention of all three dockyards.

Have a nice day

And by this you mean moving RM units into the dockyard??? at the very least Ocean, and the amphibious ships would have to stay.

LAMRI Back off sunbeam. Don't give me a fecking hard time. It was always on the card that Guzz would get all or nothing. Prior and during the Ports review, it had been muted that the Anphid and excorts would come to Guzz and Fost would stay.. everything else to 'smith.

Anyway why the shittygram!!! Just making a comment.

I challange you to a dual Sir!

The fact is that due to his/her past posts, they are now invisible and can only be seen by using the reply button in preview mode.
Try again and you can see I have actually been having a quite weird conversation :D
