My point is why are the SNP who want to kick the navy out of Scotland now berating the MOD for not having warships on standby when Mr Putin's fleet comes calling? You should really read the article in The Scotsman, it's hilarious
No, I didn't say that nor did I even imply it. I was merely pointing out that an independant Scotland would be just as well placed as the UK as it stands to deal with an non-excistant threat.[
.....or even existant.....don't worry.......Shir Shaun will deal with them.......after all, he used to have a licence to kill....them pesky Russies used to fear him........until he became a submarine captain....sometime in October.
Well the Scots will have to wait 11 years before it can get up to its naval capacity, even if they could find the sailors willing to join the Scots forces. So 4 type 23 wouldn't pose a threat to the Ruskie's it would be quite embarrassing to see that once a strong nation go into ruin. If they can't defend it self will more fisherman from Russia be inclined to intrude into Scottish water. No more salmon for salmon.
I fear that is not the case cobs2012. Salmond has won Politician of the Year for 3 consecutive years precisely because he is such a good debater and orator. However, I take comfort in the fact that although the packaging is shiny and bright in terms of his eloquence about independance, most people can still see that it wraps a turd.
Oh please, you're too kind, I prefer the term 'polymath' myself, Witless:lol:^_~.
Anyway, slapdown over, I suppose we could have sent Commander Crabbe to have a look at them in harbour but what about the SNP's anti-nuclear weapons policy (because I'm sure the Russkies will be packing a few)?
