Presumably the Chinese will have some aircraft on SS WHo-Flung-Ding. HMS Gordon Brown will have to make do with cardboard cut-outs.

And all the crew are trained to shout in unison, "BANG-BANG! You're sunk!" That'll teach 'em!

"A scrimmage in a Border Station-
A canter down some dark defile
Two thousand pounds of education
Drops to a ten-rupee jezail.
The Crammer's boast, the Squadron's pride,
Shot like a rabbit in a ride!

No proposition Euclid wrote
No formulae the text-books know,
Will turn the bullet from your coat,
Or ward the tulwar's downward blow.
Strike hard who cares - shoot straight who can
The odds are on the cheaper man."

Drones is cheap, drones is.

That's why I like 'em, and would rather pay for them than those two floating targets!

David. It was Labour that done the deal for the carriers to keep work on the Clyde.

Hurrumph! Another reason the bloody things should never have been built!

Talking about the Chinese aircraft carrier (formerly Ukrainian, formerly Soviet?), an informed friend of mine said it was all a busted flush, as satellite launched missiles would soon make surface ships largely obsolete.

My point exactly, 'H'.
