Spanish Hooligans? I know what Lord Grantham would say ...

The Spaniards are at it again; this time in a clumsy attempt to direct attention from their collapsed economy, mass unemployment of young people, crapness at soccer, inability to compete on a European level etc their little bathtub boats have tried to hustle a US nuclear sub visiting Gib. 

I think I know what Lord Grantham would say - a noble and virtuous character who would rather have a sex-toy jammed up his bottom by a £195-a-go hooker than fail to support Our Rock - and it would not be polite.

Shame we haven’t a Drake anymore. He could have cannonaded Cadiz, sunk their tubs and singed their beards again.

After June 23rd it will go to Spain via the EUSSR Statehood realignments. The Falklands sold to the Argies and our nuclear subs handed over!

I am not so sure that even Drake was that good, a frontal assault on land based batteries from wooden ships, not such a great idea.

Nah, if it could be done, Drake would have instigated a land assault.

The other problem is, we have no ships, well....... we have a few but they're otherwise engaged defending strangers of foreign lands on their seas - Arabs mainly - funnily enough. In British and Med waters - not many, come to think of it - we've no fucking coast guard either!

Anon 14:05, Yes ..... but we've got lots of equal opportunity and 5-a-day workers instead.

Never mind the EU, Corbyn intends to give away the Falklands, Northen Ireland, and Gibralter anyway.

I went to the picture house to see Gray Lady Down (1978) with my first fiancee (I've had several). The 1970's was a great decade for disaster movies (Towering Inferno?) and this one featured Charlton Heston as the captain of a US nuclear submarine, hit and sunk by a Norwegian freighter. Not a bad film if you discount the footage half-inched from Ice Station Zebra. Christopher Reeves (Superman) first film role btw. But I digress. Did those nasty Spaniards do any damage Raedwald?

I have just come back from a week at Torrevieja (not far from Alicante). It seemed to me that the Brits have invaded the area and taken it over. There is more English spoken in all the shops than Spanish.
For anyone working in the area, English is a necessary.

Perhaps we could do the same with any areas of Spain that we wished ;o)

True, these days it's a woman's world in Britain and only God knows what Nelson would think of what remains, the current recruitment policy therein, of the RN.......aka: the 'wimins cruisers company'.

As Lord Nelson would have said when raising the vibrating dildo to his blind eye. I see no injunction.

Idly musing as you do, these liberal days of anything that floats yer boat openness....oops bi/sisgendered-dooble-entendrez-wotevah safe sex, aka DIY on board, I wonder if, you can purchase vibrating lerve toys from the ships stores?
Plus in today's modern RN, any man can feel like a woman.

Nope the ship's pursser wouldn't approve. Though he is wondering about prostituting himself to supplement his income.

The Dagoes tried messing with a USA sub?
And they're still alive?
