        A sea wall, and we’ll make the sea people pay for it. And if some of the male sea people fall into the cement tough, the wall will just have to full of seaman ; )

    All the same, it’s good that we could provide assistance to that poor man. My oul fella was a mariner and the fellowship is still really important.

      Hero’s what? Or perhaps it’s just the usual uneducated use of apostrophe #learnhowtouseapostrophes!!

    The Russians have plenty of hardware in the North Atlantic, with a lot of it on
    station, how is it, we had to come to the rescue, yet we can’t look after our own:
    Incidently we need to put in a few radar units on some of our elevated mountain
    sites to monitor martine traffic along our coasts, in particular the Atlantic.
