Well.. he can, he is still the Prime Minister of the Untied Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, not just of England. Quoted by Leucharsfan. Typo?

Re: COVID-19 UK

Looking at the stats from another viewpoint.

Whoopee! :clap: " there has been a reduction in the number of deaths from Covid-19 tested patients," but there have been people dying from the virus propagated by selfish people.

Not much fun for the family and/or friends

Re: Tactical landing 15th -18th June

If they follow similar exercise as at Cottesmore, mainly the C-130s though, they make Khe San approaches, backtrack and also takeoff downwind.
It makes for a pleasant hour or so, particularly at night. Takes skill :thumbs:

Re: Culdrose is not what it used to be!

Too true!
I suspect that there are now more Civil Servants running the Navy than there are personnel manning the ships. Perhaps when the carriers are up to speed there might be an increase in use. At least Predannack was being used for UAVs in recent times.
Fingers crossed
