To thy unhappy coast repair
The UK's aircraft carrier program is now one billion pounds over budget.
Say goodbye to the Royal Navy.
Work on the two warships - HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales - had been delayed in December but was due to begin soon.
By their fruits shall ye know them: Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa. Canadian Flea-readers should take little comfort in the news; our violence rate places sixth in the top ten with double the reported rate in the United States. I blame sociology.
