Rum Ration's dying embers?

Two contentious posts (1) Admiral Band off to a privileged retirement following 40 years of eneventful service
And (2) How few Junior rates there were at the Buck House FAA Tea Party.

No vitriol? No lower deck drips? Nothing --Dead
Understandable if you currently serve and all you have to look up to is that dreadful Shop-Sreward look and talk-alike Comrade Ainsworth.

Bloody hell, is that what this once proud Royal Navy has come down to?

How is this current affairs? Who are you? Don't you realise that there a lot more pressing issues concerning the Armed Forces as a whole than that the MoD has a big building and some high ranking officers?

Norman, see if your long-suffering therapist can bring up those memories of blubbing in the corner off the playground because nobody wanted you to join their game. Then ask him to step up the medication.

I wasn't informed I'd be un-informed but was informed I'd be uniformed and informed others of this information in case the ill-informed had been un-informed of the uniform....I think

Don't really know the full story behind Norman, but maybe someone can fill in the early days. He's a character who turns up (different nics) every so often and plays the same record. The A-side is "there's too many 2 & half's in the navy" and the B-side is "that senior officer has no combat experience or if retired should'nt be drawing a pension".

I think he & seadog where mates and are now fighting for custody of a secret love child. :wink:

Norman, have you escaped from the asylum again? Why don't you just fcuk off and die?

Little bit harrycrappers here old chap,but who the ferk is Norman, :wink:
Norman, for those of you who don't know, is a bitter and twisted old fcukwit who periodically turns up on here and writes shite, railing about senior officers and the establishment. He offers no solutions or ideas, just repeats the same old bollocks. We've learned to treat him with the contempt he deserves. He'll hang around and make a few posts then disappear again for a few months, until he pops up again under a different username.
