    Medieval England. A beggar sits by the road. Robin Hood comes out of the forest and throws a bag of gold at the beggar's feet with the words:
    - I'm Robin Hood, taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor!
    The beggar rejoices:
    - Finally, happiness smiled at me! I am now fabulously rich!
    Robin Hood pierces the beggar with a sword, takes the gold and says:
    - I'm Robin Hood, taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor!

        Ha, here recently there was an infa that small-shavens cannot recruit people for submarine crews due to the inability to communicate in social networks. Well, people can’t live in autonomous regions without the Internet ... And then there are new boats, and people to take! request

          government plans to order four new nuclear submarines

          What for? Russians have their own submarines. It is necessary to give an asymmetric answer: order for the same amount of wooden battleships with smoothbore guns, and let the Russians burst with laughter.

        Yes, anything and everything.
        «UK Independent Nuclear Shield is our own emergency insurance, and that’s why the government plans to order four new nuclear submarines, equipped with Trident systems»said the prime minister.
        They don’t even bother chasing pipes.
        In addition, according to the prime minister, "the construction of the largest aircraft carriers in the history of Great Britain will begin in the coming years"
        And this is how to understand?
        Do they have two waffles in construction (HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales) and will they still build something or is it a govnovbros?
        Here's the bullish nose ring of the Premier League and the blue “ears” set up for a “definite” mood. ;))

        And I think I'm wondering what they remembered about the Mi-14, but it turns out where the dog rummaged.
        Well, oops, you need to restore the production of Mi-14 at an accelerated pace. In order for small-shavens to develop diarrhea that gradually turns into constipation.

        Shameful these Britons. After all, not so long ago noble fighters Spitfire did, which Messer drove like a dog. Or, for example, the no less noble Link helicopter, who has set a speed record that has not yet been broken. And now they are buying Apache from the Americans. And why? But because a bummer. Just think about it: having entered the ranks of the main victors in the war, letting your former allies to tear apart your empire (the largest state in history, by the way) is this not a collapse of spirit?

      “In the coming years, the construction of the largest aircraft carriers in the history of Great Britain will begin” Something I did not understand, they decided to put in place their former US colony? Why such ships? Such ships are not needed against us, we need a ball. stuffed rockets. Unclear?

        The author is simply off topic .. “Queen Elizabeth” will be commissioned soon, “And the Prince of Wales2 has been under construction for a long time. The same thing I think about boats. They are being built or are already in operation.

        Yeah! The British were unlucky with the former colonies ... Before the Nimitz state, especially J. Carter they were like walking to the moon - 50 years to catch up.
        But this is not the limit! China (also their former colony) even decided to surpass the Amov: to create a marine self-propelled platform the size of 1/2 of a real airfield. That's where you can gasp!

      Demand? ... wash away. Practice brazen underwater live! If so, you’ll jump up like your whole story. I was taught in childhood - there is no rear in modern warfare! (not where to hide). the impudents found a new way. True, in 40 the Americans have already sold them solid 50 destroyers, but so old that 38 drowned before reaching the theater.

    You can promise at least the Moon from the sky, the construction of nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers is a long process, as they say, or the donkey dies (money will be cut) or the caliph will change (Kemeron will be given a sort of ass) and dumped as usual on aliens.

    Wouldn’t have torn. Four boats put into operation - the navel will be untied, and even aircraft carriers - this is completely out of the realm of fantasy. Well, dreaming is not harmful, let them have fun.

    Independent nuclear shield с Trident systems
    impossible since these systems are not manufactured in England but in the USA.
    Phantom pains over a lost empire. They also have a monarchy perverted, since the children of the one who was a commoner before marriage cannot claim the throne, and in England they are called legal heirs.
    The funny thing is that officially in England there is a constitutional monarchy, but the trick is that there is still no written version of the constitution.

    The British have their own nuclear warheads. And the Americans will deliver missiles to them. And now the same Tridents are in full operational control of the British. That is, they will let go on purpose if necessary without asking the Americans
