Anywhere, as long as it’s not in England or Scotland

That’s it from me until evening, folks.

As tweeter David Vance pointed out, the British govt is beyond the pale. That much we know, so what was the motivation?

1. Thumb the nose and spit on the British people?

2. Suck up to Spain so they’ll be nice and leave Gibraltar alone, unmolested by warships?

3. Them know something we don’t. We suspect Them’ll keep us in the EU and then the EU becomes a superstate with armed forces but it seems more than that to me.

Them own Carney and the BofE, they own the BIS, the press, schools, medicine and so it goes on – the judiciary here and globally. The aim is a single global state, all points that way, federal, with politburo, head honcho currently probably living in Tibet or the Bavarian Alps.

Currency disappears, SDRs are the new currency for those on a certain rung and above, the plebs live hand to mouth with regional govt handouts.

Then starts the weeding out of dissent in the sense that the arrests begin in earnest. Net regulated of course.

I would say they’re sure of themselves because they’ve already made the agreements, all that’s left is the timing. Where the ships are built then does not matter, as long as it’s not in England or Scotland.

    South Korea built three RFA tankers.
    Now Spain is in the picture to build three RFA ships to support the Royal Navy’s pair of white elephants.

    The paper that came up with the ‘story’ has this header
    ‘Betrayal’ if £1bn contracts for Royal Fleet Auxiliary ‘solid support ships’ are given to Spain

    The Daily Express people obviously suffer from word blindness as they cannot see Fleet Auxiliary.

    And when one gets to the end of the article one gets to the probable state of play.

    He added: ‘The competition began in 2018 and there are currently five potential bids, including one from a UK consortium.’

    Spanish built warships! Won’t they all sink if they went up around Scotland, as they did in 1588?

      Or if they go anywhere near a broom?

        I must admit that went right over my head. Even after googling all I got was a reference to J R Broome.

          Andy, more a reference to what happens when Spanish ships get too close to the UK –

            Thank you Chuckles. I come here to be educated and am rarely disappointed.

            More good luck than good management on our part. 🙂

    I have never seen the sense in having military stuff built abroad. Buy in quality stuff like small arms from abroad sure, but actual ‘make’ ships, planes and big stuff, that can’t end well. Even without any malicious intent, the Fuck Up potential is just too great.

    Mind you, if Gibraltar has a decent naval dockyard, that would be favourite. Falklands would be nice too but is just too far away for the pleasure at terminally pissing off the Argentinians to be worth the money.

    Now let’s not be TOO snarky about this. Most Spanish ships built today at least can float. There is no shortage of shipbuilders in this world who can do worse.

    One thing you could be sure of, however, is that they would NOT be built in the US. After all, that would make President Trump look good, and the people who own your government are not about to let any such thing happen.

    The Spanish still fly Harriers off their ships. More than can be said for the RN.
