The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
Oman 'wants to buy' Eurofighter.
Will they be paying Â£1 for these (and then spare parts) too?
That was Jordan got the Ch1 mate.
This is rather old news I wonder why the No 10 have decided to bring this to the fore just now?
An announcement at Farnborough would have been more appropriate.
Could it be that thee might be some Eurofighter jobs in some marginal seat??
Fook! Close..... I remember those bad boys being loaded on the ship.
I'm assuming he meant the Challenger 1 gift to Jordan. Which he just confirmed above.
That's my thought also.
Re eurofighter jobs - BAe Warton, where most of the aircraft is made, is apparently in South Ribble, which has a labour majority of just over 2,000, as AJD surmised
Hmmm ...... how fast can you spin?
Talk to spanner mechs who have worked out there.
Hundreds of Omani tradesmen who just kill time until there get made up to Sgt, then office job.
F16's in service now, have yank system of maint, a thousand different trades, I am Left wheel Tech and I don't do Right wheels. OK Exaggeration but you now what I mean.
It's all just a sales Exercise by UK PLC.
I will not say anything about the Lynx they have.
Don't want to upset Masturbators, do I.
There was a time when Oman would have bought British. But we don't have anything to sell them now.
Whats the point having the best fighter jet around if everyone else has one as well?
Because otherwise you would get pwned.
South Ribble - constituency of the odious David Borrow. As nasty a careerist politician as you could ever hope to avoid meeting. You could have journeyed far and wide and not met a more peacenik socialist than David, until all of a sudden he got elected for the constituency at the heartland of the Lancashire aerospace industry - for every BAESYSTEMS job there, there are four others! All of a sudden he became a man who valued the impact of defence industry and the importance of national defence. He became an "expert" very quickly - i myself was tasked with briefing the slimy sh1t when he was leader of Preston Bc and later when he became an MP.
Of course he remains a bugger, some things never change and is happily partnered to John. His other consistent life theme has been being a top ten claimant of parliamentary expenses including the maximum unreceipted claims scam. He has never offered to repay any of these claims.
He won his seat from Robert Atkins who had a Con majority of 5000 or so. So the potential for Mr B to return to private life in May is high!
A Booger !
as Winston once said Boogers can't be Choosers.
