I quite like the way they reported that Babcock will be conducting a serious enquiry when the fire has been put out. What's the difference between a standard one and a serious one then?

Ah yes, this is a standard "cost increase procedure". Carry on.

Yep how hot does it have to get before the metal is seriously weak end and has to be replaced?

I don't think it matters in this case - I hear that they're only tack-welding them together anyway, as that will make it easier to break them up for scrap as soon as they're completed.

Probably in direct proportion to any completion penalties, I suspect.

This from Sky News:

Althought the flames of the "small fire" were put out within an hour, firefighters remained to check the rest of the hull.

So, are we saying that this along the lines of 'Small Earthquake In Chile: Not Many Injured' type of headline?

Early reports that two Geordies fishtailed a stolen Imprenza into the car park of the Watts Eaterie in Glenrothes half an hour after the fire then vanished in a cloud of smoke, cackling, are entirely unfounded. I wish to make that clear.

Build yer ships will you, ya bas.

"When completed, the 280m (919ft) HMS Queen Elizabeth will be capable of deploying up to 40 Lockheed Martin F-35 aircraft."

But in practice will only carry 6.

Maybe fewer jokes in the write up? I'd also like to know why we have a serious crimes squad, is there one for jovial crimes? or perhaps police that specialise in clown related incidents. Custard pie injuries, or crashes that involved 12 people in a single car with doors that won't close.

And how far off in the future will the said Lockheed Martin F-35 aircraft." have trained aircrew and ground crew for deployment ? long after any aircraft carrier actually gets launched i think.

Beagle says, in defence of his moron welder son, he was definitely on the train home from Londonistan when his section of the ship caught fire!!!!!
