Anyone know how to do this? Anyone interested in chipping in?

ScOffasDyke Thu 13-Oct-16 18:33:32

No. And no. What on earth for?

Mistigri Thu 13-Oct-16 19:06:32

I'm sure Arron Banks will put up a £100 million or two.

Unicornsarelovely Thu 13-Oct-16 19:14:54

No thanks. You might want to ask the queen. She has a few bob.

STIDW Thu 13-Oct-16 22:30:30

No point. Times have moved on & there is no role for Britannia. Trade deals are done by jet travel these days.

ItsAllGoingToBeFine Thu 13-Oct-16 22:31:43

If it goes ahead we'll all be crowd funding it through our taxes <bitter>

LittleBearPad Thu 13-Oct-16 22:52:03

Let's not. Ridiculous idea.

MakemineaGandT Thu 13-Oct-16 22:56:01

confused OP are you serious?! In what universe will sailing around the world in a floating antiquated attempt at a show of power give us any "trade" advantage?!

What a joke.

Maybe I'd buy a timeshare weeksmile

BertrandRussell Thu 13-Oct-16 23:05:51

Don't worry. If it happens we'll be compulsorily crowd funding it anyway.

Leave voters should crowd fund it, seeing as it's pretty much the only idea on the table. Also a new wardrobe for the Duchess of Cambridge for when she sails around the world on it, inspiring the dazzled natives to sign up for lucrative trade deals. And the galley can be fully stocked with food and drink provided by Wetherspoons.

Haha elements

Perhaps we should also ensure it is stocked with plenty of Andrea Leadsom's "innovative jams". We can call in at every port and flog our wares. Sure to bring in plenty of revenue to keep the NHS afloat.

What? Why are you laughing? You think perhaps we need a Plan B?!

Good wind up grin Nigel Farage etc might have to as hard brexit will be very expensive!

LittleBearPad Fri 14-Oct-16 11:41:13

Can you imagine Liam Fox's smug grin on his own personal boat - the queen wouldn't get a look in. envy <vomit not envy>

Frackingweekend Fri 14-Oct-16 12:13:02

Lots of slogan opportunity on the side of a boat though!

MakemineaGandT Fri 14-Oct-16 12:32:14

Anyone got any ideas for a name for the new Royal Yacht?

How about "Brexit McBrexitFace"?

BertrandRussell Fri 14-Oct-16 12:33:28

Parasite Mc Parasiteyface.

MakemineaGandT Fri 14-Oct-16 12:40:21

Ha! Love it BertrabdRussell

Wonder whether they'll be able to fly the Union Jack on it? Might need a new flag by then if they've destroyed the Union.

Honestly - I'm laughing about all this.......but it's just not funny is it 😡

I think every politician who supports this, and every crowd founder, should be awarded a berth in a hammock in the bowels of the ship and sent on a very long voyage to the southern ocean, so that they can enjoy a dose of the 19c reality beyond the nostalgia (and yes those really are the conditions that those who sailed the Brittannia in this century lived in )

This reminds me of Aaron banks' funding of extra union jacks for the last night of the proms. The world has gone mad.

Kaija Sat 15-Oct-16 14:42:48

I will happily contribute. As long as we can put Davis, Johnson, Fox, Hannan, Farage and Arron Banks on it and be assured that it will never return.
