That's the way things go when you elevate mediocre people to positions of authority.

This is a photo taken a month or so ago when the French Navy were in town. I can't remember the name, but it was something beginning with 'V'.

The French Navy hasn't impressed me since they were trounced at Trafalgar, to be honest. I mean really, when your greatest triumph is scuttling your own ships in harbour so that the Vichy regime couldn't pass them over to the Nazis, I'd suggest that triumphs are a little thin on the ground!
