    So Mr Gove has written a letter stating that the taxpayer should put their hands in their pockets and buy the Queen a £60 million pound boat for the Jubilee.
    Who's going to Design it Mr Gove? Hope you are not after best of British, because following your line of thinking there will not be any British designers left!
    Who's going to build it Mr Gove? Best of British? there will not be any boat builders, engineers, etc etc if your plans come to pass.

  3. Excellent point! Who will design & build this ship! French Design, built in Japan, not an ounce of British input. Sad really isn't it?
    What did happens to all the shipyards anyway?
    British Manufacturing? I don't think he's even aware that any kind of manufacturing still exists in Britain. Of course if he did know of its existence he would try to shorten their holidays, lengthen their working day & expect to justify this by saying that they love what they're doing so now they can spend more time doing it!
    Huzzah!

  5. Not to mention developing the technology for improved depth finders, auto helm, satalite navigation systems. General onboard control systems etc etc etc. The amount of technology that is on these boats, he really has no idea.... Anyone else feel the need to bang that guys head against a brick wall?

    You can't do that....................because very soon no one will be able to build a brick wall, the possibilities are truly endless Mr Gove!!
