I'm a bit confused

by the blackspot map - does it mean all the khaki coloured bits have good service and the blue blobs poor/no service?

Use snooped data in court? Nah, says UK.gov - folk might be cleared


It used to be

that the prosecution were required to disclose unused evidence to the defence on request and that would presumably cover snooping records. I'm talking about 30 years ago so things may well have changed.

Japanese artist cuffed for disseminating 3D ladyparts files


Irony or something

In a Japanese town I visit fairly regularly for its hot springs is a temple the name of which is enticingly translated as the "Happy God Temple". The central shrine of the temple is a rock formation portraying Mother Nature's representation of lady parts. http://www.mediafire.com/view/0za2jypjj5zjn/Japan#gl6q3bq9dnet946

You always need extra fuel!

And that is the major weakness of an aircraft carrier. It needs lots and lots of aviation fuel because whatever its storage capacity might be, in intensive flying operations, it needs topping up very frequently. And if it's non-nuclear engined, it needs a lot of fuel just to keep steaming round. A cunning enemy wouldn't both trying to penetrate a carrier air group's defences - simply disrupting the (very) vulnerable flow of supply ships would bring things to a grinding halt very quickly.


Re: SkippyBing a navalised Typhoon

Scimitars had fallen out of operational use at sea by 1966. Thereafter the tanking was done by Sea Vixens or Buccaneers.


Re: You think aircraft carriers are expensive...

Considering that Nimrods were Comet 1 airframes (yes, the very same that embarrassingly broke up in flight) I reckon they did pretty well.


Re: You think aircraft carriers are expensive...

The problem with the Harrier was that it was getting a bit long in the tooth. Do you realise the prototype P1127 first flew 54 years ago?

There was the shoe bomber.

Well, they were both failures of airport security so that doesn't make for a useful contribution either.


Re: Why did we publish this?

"It may prompt Oman to publicly cut ties and force the base to close?"

Unlikely, the ties go very deep particularly with the UK - and even the US (recall the abortion of the Teheran hostages rescue was mounted from Oman). BT has been well established since at least the mid-1980s to my knowledge. MI6 used to run the euphemistically-named Oman Research Department and probably still does.


Re: Britain's got secrets

"...At what level are things really kept secret?"

At a national level "Eyes only" - meaning UK eyes only - is close to the top but I believe there more above that.
