‘Ferry fiasco’ has been a favourite for the delayed Calmac ferries, expected now to cost £240 million. The media and opposition frenzy has positively frothed and SNP ministers have been told to resign.
The two new Royal Navy aircraft carriers costing, so far, £7.7 billion, are in deep trouble too. HMS Prince of Wales, the NATO flagship, is in dock now for the third time, as NATO confronts threats in the Black and South China Seas. Speaking personally, I’m quite happy with this situation but surely our current UK Government, keen to project English, sorry British, power beyond Portsmouth must be concerned. As for the UK media and the Labour opposition, why are they not stirring up this far bigger fiasco?
