I was flicking through Kent on Sunday today when an article leapt out at me. Some geezer, John Withington, is promoting his book Britain’s Worst 20 Military Disasters and one of these disasters occurred in 1667 in Kent.
Have a butcher’s hook at the clipping, excuse the size difference in text as I’m still trying to get my head around the ‘snipping tool’ on my Windows 7. I’ve just replaced my base unit as I can’t afford a whole computer.
Instead of King Charles II think of David Cameron, replace Dutch with Argentinian, replace Medway with Falklands, the bit about Royal Navy ships at anchor with skeleton crews read Royal Navy ships mothballed with crews made redundant and you have another military disaster waiting to happen.
Also bear in mind there has been plenty of ‘sabre rattling’ in Argentina over the Falklands or Maldives as they know them.
