Subject: RE: BS: Lord Nelson's flagship
Well, we all get what we deserve eventually. The Labour Party have systematically tried to dismantle and destroy the Royal Navy since 1964-the dark days of Harold Wilson and Denis Healey.How on EARTH a card-carrying member of the British Communist Party EVER got to be our Defence Minister, I have never figured out, but he( Healey) had a wonderful time cancelling numerous defence projects,scrapping aircraft-carriers and generally doing just what the Soviets wanted !! And Yes!! The Labour Party are STILL DOING IT !! And people out there, at every election since, are STILL voting for them. It's beyond reason and comprehension. So perhaps it would be best,after all, if HMS Victory WERE to quietly fade away, like the once-proud navy it so proudly symbolised has.
