Tories Throw us Back to Colonial Status

Recommended Posts

Somehow Australia, which is becoming as multi-cultural as we are and has a very strong "republican" streak doesn't seem to mind calling its Navy the Royal Australian Navy and Air force the RAAF.

I suppose according to some posters here we should haverebranded our vessels to take away the "HMS" designation since we're no longer a colony.

Some posters here are simply saying that useless changes to important institutions for purely partisan political gains are unseemly.

Point well made.

In fact the name change is more a distraction to cover up some scandal or serious cost cutting exercise that is coming down the pike.
