What an expensive shambles

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. As of today, the MOD has wasted £4,448,928 on legal fees to wealthy London Chambers, defending its flawed case against British Nuclear Test Veterans' War Pension claims. They have paid the Fijian and New Zealand veterans-but not our own.
    This obscene amount includes some £500,000 thrown away on the two latestTribunals conducted by the late Judge Stubbs and Mr Justice Charles in the Upper Chamber who decreed the MOD had misapplied the law.

    Ouch! All that money down the drain.
    It all has to start again.

    What a pity those NS Crabs and Brownjobs and some RN ones ashore in HMS Resolution, couldn't have survived--worked for the MOD developing Repetitive Strain Injury limping and smiling all the way to the bank.

    So far as I know Granny and I, who were some miles away from the detonations at sea are, more or less all right. Not so our colleagues ashore and aboard HMS Diana who sailed through the descended mushroom cloud protected by anti-flash gear and inadequate fire pumps attempting to wash away the radio-active debris.

    My memory of this period is of sailing back to Christmas Island under a blanket of fog/mist, the harbour littered with dead fish and seabirds. As I have written before... 'They wouldn't put the crew in harms way, Would they' ?

    Maybe you could just use a Jedi mind tick and fool everyone into thinking their seeing a link Yoda. Your powers are weak!
