    Airbourne Early Warning

    Top Cover, I assume to be high-altitude intercept capability and 'mud
    moving' I'm assuming is ground attack.

    I'm pretty sure that the way it works is that they hold the stocks of
    the missiles and we cart a ready to use supply around in our subs but
    we still retain the ability to fire at will. As long as they agree...

  3. Was being dismantled in ummm... some shithole at the southern end of the
    Firth of Clyde by then. Was quite incongruous to see something that size
    at the side of the road.

    I recall stopping and whipping out a camera and some wanker of a
    security bod trying to give me a difficult time for that. What an
    absolute tosser - National Security My Fucking Arse - it had no secrets
    any more and half the cunts working on it would have sold their grannies
    to the Russkis for a fiver.

    Teach a man to fish and he and his pikey mates will have the
    river cleaned out in a day.

    Talking of which - is there any sign of the MR4 Nims yet?

    Only I did watch a fuselage heading off to Hurn in Feb '97, and was
    wondering how they were getting on.

  6. More like protecting the contents of the tower of London first but
    expanding to domestic and near foreign trade next I would suspect and
    then citizenry as and where we set up colonies in order to reinforce the
    first two. Now that we are safe from harm with those three we have
    added extra layers of altruism and are protecting other poor bastards
    round the world who can't afford to buy their own but can afford to rent
    which is why we are off the coast of Iraq to keep the Al Quaeda navy at
    bay and the channels open for essential bulk supplies going in like
    bullets for the merkins and empty oil tankers and stuff while the Iraqis
    throw off their feudal past, deal with the reformation as quick as they,
    get to grips with the liberating effects of the industrial revolution
    and learn how to be righteous god fearing capitalists.

    Heh. One airframe in service trials, two others on manufacturers
    trials, the other 9 in various states of preproduction, last time I
    looked.

    Only about 10 years late, so far.

    I hate it when you do this.
    Well, given that I've looked at secondary schools recently (5 years ago)
    all I can state is my experience shows me that state secondary schools
    are horribly underfunded. The school I went to has lost its library,
    it's chemistry and physics labs look almost the same as when I was there
    and ditto the sports facilities.

    We can also look at the fact that anyone off to uni now can expect to
    leave with 10k+ in debts due to the virtual abolition of grants.

    Can't comment on New York since I've never been there but the rest are
    fine places. Albeit Melbourne's a little sleepy but it's over 15 years
    since I was last there.

    Maybe, I've got connections with education as well and all doesn't seem
    that good with the LEA trying to close down small schools due to budget
    challenges and issuing notice to all of the school support staff to
    force them to accept new contracts; paying in some cases 90% (or less)
    than the old contract.

    The reason? Well that support staff (dinner ladies, classroom
    assistants, school secretaries) were overpaid since they got 12 weeks a
    year holiday rather than 5 and consequently the council needed to reduce
    their basic pay to make up for this.
    Maybe. I hope so.
    Yes.

    Oh, and btw it looks like we got away with it.

    Thank goodness tribal memories were traditionally passed down through the
    old men. Had it been the women we would have JC's every word, verbatim.

    FWIW my wedding/honeymoon was outstanding.

  17. So only 1 in 9,650 goes towards funding High Energy Physics research?
