The latest Paul Clarke update

Well done CF
I'm glad I retired from The Royal Fleet Auxiliary
On October 28, 2009, the armed Royal Fleet Auxiliary tanker Wave Knight met Somali pirates transferring the British couple Paul and Rachel Chandler from their yacht Lynn Rival to a hijacked Singaporean container vessel.
Hostage: Rachel Chandler and her Somali captors. The British couple has made a direct plea on video warning UK authorities they fear the 'kidnappers are losing patience' and may kill them
When warning shots from Wave Knight failed to deter the pirates, its 100-strong crew stood by and did . . . absolutely nothing.
Read the whole article here and weep.
Oh, and there was a two year argument, on whether ring bolts on the upper deck should be painted grey or white.
Grey argument: Must paint grey to prevent the enemy spotting us.
Counter argument: Radar has been in existence since WW2
White argument: Will prevent sailors stubbing their toes
Counter argument: Why don't they look where they're going
It's not the Beeb, but the truth is leaking out slowly
Shamelessly knicked from Subrosa
Dead against Skyprotect
Dear Wankers at Skyprotect,
I have just received a letter from yourselves, thanking me for purchasing Skyprotect.
I have done no such thing. The only time I have contacted you was to inform you of the DEATH of my uncle, Mr xxxxxx . That's it, DEAD, DECEASED, SHRUGGED OFF HIS MORTAL COIL, Etc. Need I go on? Is no-one taught to actually read letters these days. There was also another slight clue in the envelope which you failed to spot. Why would I enclose a death certificate?. It's not a mandatory document required for a purchase as yet.
Yours, in disgust,
Mr Filthy Engineer
Soon to ditch Sky and turn to Virgin cable.
Hope I wasn't too hard on them for their minor mistake
