    Is Boris Johnson about to be elected PM by Conservative party of UK.

    However is it being done to create a constitutional crisis - since he is not born in UK itself ? Fascinating times. Brexit and now a PM candidate that isn’t even born in UK. It’s crossed the red line now that he is a leading contender. What are they creating ? What is coming to UK it’s getting a bit surreal and many will say much later more. Absolutely fascinating. From philosophy to history to even mythological point of view.

    He mentioned that the UK “court process” is evaluating questions on if the London heathrow airport can have another run way. His place of birth issue will be observed by many - even some here - Italian coffee anyone (but they won’t get it). He even claims his grand parents are outside from UK. Will it be where parents are born ? Originally Origin. A bit like how South Americans get to play football in Europe - laughable, but ultimately that’s for residency not more. Technically he has more grounds to become the president of USA > to UK. No wonder Trump likes him. He’s fellow New Yorkan. Many will say He being the favourite and top contender is justified. Really fascinating times.

    Factbox: Iran tanker crisis shows that Britain no longer rules the waves
    4 Min Read


    • LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s failure to prevent Iran’s Revolutionary Guards from seizing a British-flagged oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz shows the decline of the once mighty British navy.

      The navy, which has one frigate and four mine sweepers in the Gulf, is now far too small to fulfill its global role, according to Tobias Ellwood, a defense minister.

      Britain once had the most powerful navy in the world. But the size of the fleet has declined rapidly over recent decades - largely due to decades of spending cuts.

      Here is a look at the size of the British navy:

      ** Britain spends more on defense than France, Germany, Italy, Spain or any other European Union country. The problem is that much of this is on the renewal of its nuclear program and on two new expensive aircraft carriers, leaving conventional forces such as the navy short of surface ships.

      ** Britain has one frigate, HMS Montrose, and four mine sweepers on duty in the Gulf.

      On any given day, about 15 to 30 large British-flagged ships travel through the Gulf, with up to three passing through the Strait of Hormuz.

      A second frigate, HMS Kent, and a destroyer, HMS Duncan, are heading toward the region to replace HMS Montrose.

      Britain simply does not have the naval resources in the region to escort every British-flagged merchant vessel through the Strait of Hormuz.

      ** Britain’s navy currently has 77 commissioned vessels, including six destroyers, 13 frigates and 10 submarines. The rest are primarily minesweepers, survey ships and other support vessels.

      By comparison the navy had 138 ships and 33 submarines in 1990. So in the last three decades the navy has reduced the number of submarines, frigates and destroyers by more than half, according to Ministry of Defense.

      Roughly half the ships are in routine maintenance or training at any given time. For example, the defense minister Stuart Andrew said in October four of the frigates will spend all of 2018 in port.

      Several others are committed to small standing patrols, which leaves just a handful of vessels to respond to emergencies.

      ** The navy currently has one aircraft carrier. A second aircraft carrier is due to be commissioned next year. But they are much smaller than US aircraft carriers and slightly smaller than Russian and Chinese carriers.

      A leak on the aircraft earlier this month forced the ship to return to port early.

      ** The Royal Navy has shed people faster than ships. Britain had 39,000 sailors in the navy in 2000. It now has a little more than 30,000.

      In 1945 at the end of Second World War, the Royal Navy has 861,000 sailors, a number that fell to 128,000 in 1955 and 62,000 in 1991, according to the Ministry of Defense.

      This has coincided with cuts to the defense budget, which has declined from over 4% of economic output in 1990 down to around 2% percent now.

      ** Britain’s shrinking navy is under intense pressure, facing the challenge of protecting its own waters when it is facing so many tasks in other parts of the world.

      ** From the mid 18th century the Royal Navy was the world’s most powerful navy. It was played a key part in establishing the British Empire. The United States overtook British naval mastery during World War Two.

      As an island nation, the prestige of the navy, has played an important part of its national character. The navy helped Britain rule the waves, as the lyrics of the patriotic song “Rule Britannia” state.

      ** On D-Day in 1944, Britain was able to send more than 900 British warships across the English Channel to escort allied troops who would liberate Europe from Nazi Germany.

      But after the cost of funding two world wars and abandoning its imperial role, Britain gradually began to down size the size of its navy.

    Well how come those Iranian niggers didn't let our folk go by now, we are perhaps handful of countries that still appeasing these Goat Lovers.

    Actually this is a menace, India has the third highest number of sea seafarers in the world, many such vessels in those area have Indian crew.
