Hibernation with propellers

Dear readers and kinsfolk, Mr. Spitfire has entered the unholy period of revision and will as such, as the circumstances present themselves, inhabit the vast realms of the blogosphere somewhat less in the coming weeks. Fret not, for he shall return, stronger than before and all the more vigilant in telling our rulers precisely what they do not want to hear. Long I do for the day when I have the honour of being such a thorn in the political side that I am being censored. Somehow I reckon, my relative unimportance will most likely render such a fantastic hope moot. But who knows.

Now wipe that tear out of your eye and rejoice at the picture below, which is the first of a set of four propellers being built for the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers.

Anyschmoot, revision calls, maƱana ye dwellers of the past.


It has come to my attention that this is going to be a very dirty election and that all sorts of foul treatments are thrown around. For your benefit, here are what some the 'insults' actually mean:

RACISM: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

XENOPHOBIC: an unreasonable fear or hatred of foreigners or strangers or of that which is foreign or strange.
