"less noise than a baby dolphin"?!

Anyway, we in Soton will look forward to having ARTFUL affiliated to us, and those weirdo's (who number about 8) can shove it!
I love that bit about "less noise than a baby dolphin"!

I was trying to imagine what noise a baby dolphin makes, if any, to imagine just how quiet Artful will be . I suppose they squeak or something .........

The Solent Coalition Against Nuclear ships (SCANS), which has been campaigning for the past decade to keep the docks nuclear free, said the “desires of the Navy†had been put before the “safety of citizensâ€.
As I remember cos I lived there, Southampton has a massive container port so when container ships turn up powered by nuclear propulsion which I'm sure will happen, they will ban them from entering will they?
Yea right!

To be fair, I'm pretty sure I've seen nuclear subs in Southampton before (since they're the only types of subs we have...).

You get small groups of nuts worried about everything though ;)

My bold. SSNs have been visiting Southampton Docks intermittently for at least 20+ years. Some of the of nuts, a small minority of the local population, have been complaining most of this time.
