Thumbs up Good or Bad?

New Brittania for our Lizzie,a 600ft 4 masted sailing ship,just been given the go ahead by Mr. Cameron from public funds.Personally,i think its a good thing,it is not going to be for the royals exclusive own personal usage, and will be used to push/highlight british products and events,was sad to see the old Britannia go,looking forward to seeing the new.Wonder if Mr. Ring will be tendering?

Not according to the BBC - "A new royal yacht, built with private funding, is being considered by the prime minister, Downing Street says."

Talking of funding have you saved enough to pay for the brackets you ordered off me sometime last year?
