So the Norwegians want to ban us from thier waters now? Can’t see how a couple of Eskimos in kayaks are going to stop our new fleet of “Super Trawlers” from crashing through the North Sea, but they’re welcome to try.
For years I have advocated for the return of a HMS HOOD to our fleets ranks and this grotesque foreign posturing could be the “seagull in the propeller” (to coin a old Navy term) that rams this through Parliament.
Back in the war everyday people were encouraged to donate scrap metal to the government. Everything from old bikes to pots and pans was donated and our MOD constructed a new fleet of ships from the offerings.
I propose a new community drive to help our navy lads out and beseech Boris to heed my call. Bring forth your spoons! Bring forth your door handles! This great island nation will once more sally onwards across the crashing waves and into the jaws of battle!
With our new fleets dominating this Norwegian fuelled “Battle of the Atlantic” Boris and the boys can start casting a wry eye over some of our former interests. I think a certain communist usurper in the White House might be quickly looking for our PMs phone number!
