His son as First Lord of the Admiralty sent a squadron of ironclads to Lamlash in readiness to bombard Belfast in June 1914 if the Ulster rebels showed their hand. Well done Winston.

I thought it was a reference to 1885 when Northern Ireland's loyal Protestants were threatening rebellion to stop Home Rule for all of Ireland. They threatened to do so again in 1912 and raised, trained and armed a private army to resist a similar act; it's slogan was 'Ulster will Fight and Ulster will be right'. These 'loyalists' ignored and still ignore the fact that a majority of Irish men and women voted for the Home Rule party. So much for the Northern Irish respect for 'democratic choice'. What they have always wanted is the Protestant ascendancy. The attachment to the British crown has always been on their own terms and, more lately, generous subsidies from London. Remember how the ultra-Protestant MPs camel trading for more cash in return for support for Tories under Mrs May. Northern Ireland is not, nor ever been an asset.

Well said: there may well be vultures over the White Cliffs of Dover and the Unicorns won't send them packing.

Administration and logistics are vital to the waging war: when they fail, as they did during the Crimean war of the shell shortage of 1915, we are in trouble. By all means sack the civil servants - a mindless, knee jerk reaction - but don't be surprised when arctic clothing is sent to servicemen in Kenya.

Were I to invest in a company, I would take a zealous interest in how it conducts it affairs. You are obviously less cautious and have never heard of the South Seas Company ,the railway share 'mania' of the 1840s and the 1929 Wall Streak crash..

It is extremely naive to imagine that anyone who advocates remaining in the EU is ipso facto a troll.

So the poor must not only know their place, but stay there.That'll go down well among working class north country voters saving up for a taxi to the workhouse.

Perfect if you are well to do, not so if you are not.
