Reviewed no more

In honour of her diamond jubilee, we present footage of the Spithead Review of the Fleet from her 1953 coronation and for her silver jubilee in 1977.

We'd show you footage of the one for the current celebration, but we can't because there isn't any.  Why?  Because there wasn't a review because the Royal Navy has suffered such appalling cuts that to mount a review of the pitifully few hulls available would be an exercise in national humiliation.

Time for a John Belushi-style rant, I think.

There was enough navy to review in 2005 (according to the article)? What has been needing funding so badly since then?
