    The fact that the article is written by the "crime correspondent" says much about the nature of the research that went in to it. As does his comment about not being able to hit aircraft masked by other buildings.
  2. The majority of the RAF Regt wont work in wet weather, hardly front page news.

  3. The Telegraph has become a joke.
  4. Shhhhh. It's all a smokescreen for the latest secret weapon developed by BAe, The Surface-to-air Cockney Geezer, AKA the Pearly King missile. An extremely violent and xenophobic missile fuelled by Stella Artois and jellied eels, with a revolutionary guidance system based on self righteous ignorance and bigotry.

    If fired, residents will hear a loud long drawn out 'CAAAAAAAAHHHNNNT!' followed by several smaller explosions of 'ave it , ave it, ave it'

  7. Er Milan wasnt laser guided it was wire guided.
    if its foggy rainy enough to stop the missiles its visability going to be impaired so the operators wont see the plane till its too late anyway.

  9. Thanks for that - said I was way out of date, memory as well ....!
  10. And floods at the same time. Bloody Hell, how multi-tasking is that?
  11. DC could be the first pm to inadvertently authorise an attack on his own city
  12. And the worlds wettest drought no less!
  13. Doesn't Rapier also have radar guidance, or does radar not work on an English summer's day?

    Yeah, but it's the wrong type of rain. Broken Britain, or what?
