A Simple Sailor

Life's too short. Let Chick Yog, the Times and BBC tell the sorry tale. It's funny how someone who can deal with a flaming ship can't handle a flaming Prime Minister.

"Being a simple sailor not a politician maybe I didn't choose my words well...Maybe my choice of words wasn't very clever."

Worth a try, Lord West. I thought you were meant to be advising the Prime Minister on security. Looks like he's actually the organ-grinder, and you're the hairy little chap with the tin cup.

UPDATE - I may be being a trifle unfair to the Jolly Jack Tar ... apparently he's on record as previously supporting a limit greater than 28 days. But his shenanigans yesterday were hardly in the best traditions of the Silent Service.
