P&O will launch its latest liner today. The Queen will name the liner Britannia.

The liner will give a big boost to the economy especially in Southampton, its home port Smiley

It'll not end well... Shocked
Sad though, this country we live in is littered with former ship building yards, yet we have to have everything big and boaty built elsewhere, still, at least it wasn't made in china, though I bet most of its electonics were... Shocked

Oh to travel in a ship built at the lowest possible cost.
