  1. BBC News - Yellow Duckmarine sinks in Albert Dock in Liverpool

    A bit of a shame really, I enjoy seeing them I enjoy seeing them doing what they have been designed to do for over 50 years. I just hope they can get it back up and running as soon as they can. TBH, it probably sank in protest about being made to go in and out of the freezing water so much!
  2. Well, it's a good thing nobody was killed.

    We'd never hear the end of it.

  5. Was it overcrowded by non-paying passengers?

    And is their a grief shrine?

  8. Twas a shame it didn't take the passengers with it, usually full of obnoxious Russians!

  9. Probably because some thieving Scouse Git had the drainage plugs away.
  10. Apparently an inquiry into the sinking is under way however I can remember only one thing from science at school

    If the boat weighs more than the volume of water it displaces, it will sink. If it weighs less than the displaced water, it will float.

    I therefore conclude, ahead of the multi-million pound enquiry, that the boat weighed more than the volume of water it displaced.

  11. Nothing to do with the passengers being dense?

  12. Enquiry to be led by South Yorkshire Police perhaps?

  13. No, more likely that the crew (who are now claiming stress and can't work) forgot to do their checks.
  14. If thats the case, there must have been a yank or two on it. ;)
  15. Kent police are best.

    Can I start boycotting The Sun now?
