With breath-taking insensitivity towards the locked-down, bankrupt and unemployed peoples of Britain it isdisclosed that a new royal yacht named after Prince Philip is to be commissioned within weeks, costing as much as £200m.

The Daily Telegraph reports that the super yacht would replace HMY Britannia, which was decommissioned in 1997 and will be named after Prince Philip, according to reports.

The royal yacht was used on trade missions, like this one in India in early 1997

A former midshipman, The Duke of Edinburgh was Lord High Admiral from 2011 until his death earlier this year, and served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War starting out as a cadet from 1939. The Daily Telegraph reports that the new yacht will be announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson ‘within weeks’.

The cost of building the vessel could be as much as £200m, with MPs calling for the ship to be built in the UK. It can be assume from earlier experiences that the sum of £2 million is a gross underestimate. Parliamentarians will be given the tip-off which shipyard and related industries will be involved so they can invest in the same. Downing Street has not denied the reports, with a spokesperson saying: ‘The prime minister has an exciting vision for shipbuilding in this country and is committed to making the UK a shipbuilding superpower.

‘We are always looking for new ways to promote global Britain around the world, driving investment back to the UK and delivering value for money for the British people.’ Source

  1. ‘Parliamentarians will be given the tip-off which shipyard and related industries will be involved so they can invest in the same.’ What is the point of being a Parliamentarian if you can’t profit from it and shaft your electorate at the same time.
