We should send Big Lizzie, our new six billion quid carrier to sort them out.... once they've repaired that latest leak.

This is just more jingoistic sabre rattling from the Daily Mail with "attempting to storm" the tanker whereas the BBC report say it's "passage was being impeded"

Ooh err missus, don't like the sound of that last one!

Seriously though, isn't this just some sort of quid pro quo on behalf of the Iranians after that recent incident off Gibraltar?

I had a fishing dinghy once (or was it it a dingy).

Would that help? Roll_eyes

Well that's sorted those pesky Iraians out, we've scared them off with our one and only warship on station in the Gulf.

Less than a hundred years ago Pax Brittanica had several Fleet Stations around the world all held together under the two power standard which required the navy to be as strong as the worlds two largests navies combined.

How time change but not to worry as hot on the heels of sorting out the NHS, the son of an admiral Jermy Hunt is going to build more and send more warships to the region. Thumbs_Up

Oh well that's good to hear now we can all rest easy, secure in the knowledge that we'll be safe thanks to the wannabe PM Cheesy
