  1. The story about “Royal Navy is set to step in after crew supports action on pay” IS really worth five minutes of your time. The corruption involved is shocking, and the identity of the people responsible for it is equally shocking. Let’s hope it’s nothing to do with St Sturgeon and her nationalist party.
