    Hey, I remember this being talked about I think... couple of years ago? First thought was - really? You have money to burn on that, alone?
    But yeah, it is incredibly dumb to make separate networks, there is no reason for that except national bragging rights,

    P.S.
    WTF is going on with the page count? That bug is annoying.

    deleted posts interact badly with MMO-C archaic codebase which leads to non-existent pages.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Sometimes there can be reasons

    Unless one trusts the US GPS to not drop resolution based on national military concerns without regard for their allies.. but that trust would be ill placed

    What, you don't have implicit trust in a Russian puppeteered semi-democracy that protects human rights and liberties in lip service only (but a lot of that!) and has betrayed its closest allies in the past four years while sabotaging the global world order? SHOCKER!

    IIRC it's mainly so that European militaries and emergency services aren't dependent on the USA for accurate geolocation services (they might decide to turn them off for Russia and Trump accidentally-on-purpose makes the reduced accuracy area a bit larger).

    Brings back memories:

    The joke used to be that if accuracy was INCREASED it meant that the US was about to attack, based on what happened in Iraq.

    when i saw the nutjobs saying the navy should be stopping migrants cross the channel i was worried. Given how badly beaten the british army was in afganistan, i mean completely fucking owned, i was worried that 3 afghans in a lifeboat would probably not only beat the navy but establish a beachhead in kent. Now it looks likes the british will cede kent on thier own.


    good to see gibraltar will treat the uk like a third country as well.

    Does the Navy actually have any ships that are currently sea-worthy? Aren't they all being repaired or scrapped?

    I mean, dude, open Wikipedia. Seriously.
    Here is a carrier strike group with one of their new carriers. Countries which have that can be counted on one hand.

    Congratulations towns of Harwich, Felixstowe and other port towns in Essex, Suffolk and East Sussex. The influx of Lorries trying to save a few £££s on not getting the permit will be flooding your unprepared infrastructure.

    So... because the new UK/EU border is creating such a massive traffic jam, they are now issuing permits to enter Kent so the traffic jam is only created by authorized traffic jammers?

    Is that the gist of it?

    I mean, it should be obvious that he was making a joke. But since you're so insistent about that, the QE only got "operational" like two months ago. I wouldn't brag too much about it, yet. It's first operational deployment is planned for 2021, so right now it's "operational" in/near its home port.

    The exodus is picking up pace...

    What they've announced essentially boils down to border controls on HGVs between Kent and the rest of England.

    How that looks doesn't really need to explained in the aftermath of their vote concerning the WA just days ago.

    Jesus. Fucking. Wept.

    An internal border between Kent and the rest of the UK.

    I'm trying desperately not to get so wound up by this stuff anymore but... bloody hell. It's enough to make one gouge one's eyes out.
    @dribbles - put a positive spin on this for me, please.

    Tfw you separate so hard from the EU you end up giving it Northern Ireland and Kent in the process.

    But what is the purpose of this? Nobody asked for that. It has nothing to do with the negotiations or the EU. I am genuinely puzzled as to what he thinks he can accomplish with that.

    Boris Johnson could probably convince those that were gullible enough to believe his lies that the eu mandated hairnets for fishermen to believe the eu demanded it
