Weirdo face it, you can't defend the UK's actions, it is a sign of poverty, and loss of status. Great Britain was the most powerful nation on earth
90 years ago. The dollar was 5 dollars to a pound, it had the most ships, the best ships and the newest ships. Then somewhere along the line you
britts thought it'd be a good idea to just dump the whole "empire" thing and this is the result.
You're a poverty stricken nation, Germany's industrial base is again superior to your own, Germany and France are practically sleeping together,
meaning if it weren't for America you'd probably be a replacement for Algeirs for France that they had lost. The French navy is superior to your
own. Half of your people want to lose their autonomy to a "European Union" that is dominated by France and Germany.
I wouldn't mind being made king of that dump because I could sure do a hell of a lot better as an autocratic ruler of that nation than your Parliment
has ever done.
UK's first order of business should be regaining its empire...but as we see it can't even afford to do that because it can't even build 2
replacement carriers let alone opperate its 3 current carriers...despite the fact both the current class of Invincible and the new class are not even
comparable to the United States' Nimitz class.
The Nimitz carries 85-90 aircraft in varried assortments plus helicopters. It can steam more than 250,000 miles before needing refuling.
This is the sign that due to the moronic British public, which became very reclusive after WW2, Britain is not even worth considering a mole on the
earth. And only has "symbolic" say in world politics because America feels some sort of attachment to our distant cousins way over there.
The reality is America, Russia, and China. And then followed by a 2nd teir of the French, Germans, Japanese, and so forth....
I don't even know where to classify Britain. If war were to errupt between China and America, Britain would need to rebuild its entire navy...and
they'd probably do so using American supplies...
What ever happend to Britain? Not to mention your Prince Charles is a puff...and the whole Royal family is not even legitimate, the crown of Britain
belonged, belongs, and shall always belong to the Stuarts.
Ahh nothing like a little nation bashing for the early afternoon...sorry chap but you know really...when France surpasses your naval
capabilities...you need to either wake-up, or admit you are nothing. Because you sure as hell won't be something by trying to justify your current
Either petition your parliment to grow balls, or just be content being an island base for America in Europe.
