Good News Just Keeps Getting Better

It looks like the British won't be too much help if we blockade North Korea. Find the joke in this paragraph:

Defence experts predicted that the most the Royal Navy could contribute was a single frigate, a Royal Fleet auxiliary support vessel and a Trafalgar class hunter killer submarine...As a result of government cutbacks any British ships deployed to the South China Sea to enforce the UN resolution would depend on the American or French navies to provide "beyond visual range" air defence with their aircraft carriers.

I guess they're too busy spending money on that wicked super awesome socialized healthcare thing I keep hearing so much about.

The Thatcher years increasingly seem to have been a pleasant but brief interlude in England's downward slide. Still, there may be hope: Maybe the first British Shah will push for more defense spending.
