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. That wont please the miserable apologists in the Liberal Democrats
     
  2. i note that Angus Robertson MP, who is the SNP Defence spokesman, the SNP leader in Westminster (for all that's worth), and the MP for Moray (which includes RAF Lossiemouth) has declared Trident 'illegal'. I would be interested to know exactly why he thinks this.
     
  3. I think the SNP guy has bought into the idea that replacing trident contravenes one of the non-proliferation treaties or somesuch. Saw it in an article somewhere about the theory being put forward by some 'academics'
     
  4. For the Record.

    Not many here will be mature enough to recall but the Original SSBN scheme was all set up for five boats - until the then Labour Govt. chopped them down to four.

    All delivered on time & within Budget.
