Typhoon: Originally designed as an interceptor, fell short then developed into ground attack 

Tornado: designed as Multi Role Combat, couldn't turn and burn so became ground attack

We haven't produced a fighter for a long time. We really are the bomber nation.

The Trident was the Morris Marina of the skies

Absolute shite all round

The only 'absolute shite' here is the stuff you're posting. You clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

Must admit, I thought I'd read not too long ago that Typhoon had done particularly well in exercises with f35/22 not sure which, that are newer?

Whatever the case, our aircraft don't seem to have come off too badly when deployed in action all over the shop.

I was referring to the WW2 Typhoon, Roly Beamont developed it into a ground attack as it wasn't much cop as a fighter. I don't know much about the current RAF Typhoon (believe it or not)

PS: Roly Beamont became the chief test pilot at BAC and flew the Canberra (a good aeroplane) and the TSR2 (shite), I used to have a part ownership share in what was his personal aeroplane... it was hand built by the apprentices at Warton in 1968.

Emotions run a bit high on the football bit at times, this is just good old fashioned mockery.

On here people seem to have strong views in support of one side or another so you disagreements. On the football side you would think people would be aligned, but you get pricks saying we need to change when had taken 26 points from 10 games.

I think some are just WUMs from other clubs.

To be fair they've usually been firing laser guided bombs at goat herders! 😁

Yes, but if we had changed, then we would have got 30 points from 10 games and ended up as Champions 😉 😜

Fair enough. New one is awesome. 

Stood on the sand at Southport as one flew over. The vibration started a tiny amount of liquefaction and my shoes sunk in a few mm.

The Guardian telling all who voted for Johnson are a cult 🤔

Read that this morning, Marina is a sharp cookie.

I always thought of Trump as a cult and the current Tories have modelled themselves on his media savvy presentation... I recall Cummings was whinging last week about how the PM was obsessing about his coverage, although he and Campbell started it all

Or thick as fuck😃 

Obviously that's tongue in cheek, but that recent Hartlepool by election they were interviewing a father and son. They were bemoaning the fact that the hospital no longer had an A&E so they said it was about time the Tories had a go. Fuckwits.

We get them over here from RAF Conningsby, also US Hornets beating up the Royal Anglian Regiment at (local) RAF Cottesmore.

Noise rattles your fillings... bloody great fun

Reading that makes me think is a 'cult' leader simply a charismatic leader you do not agree with ? 
I have never like Boris but people who dismiss as thick I think have it wrong. It will be interesting in the coming months of his time in charge if he follows the model of the vaccine and roll out . Appoint non political experts to do the job for you and take the credit. (That is not a criticism btw all the best leaders I have worked for have got great teams around them and let them get on with it.)
