    Tilbury's London Gateway waterfront that is designed to serve the worlds largest container ships , cheers
    A few more years ago, they would have been built here

    Yes your right there Tony those were the days when we were known as Great Britain now it's just the UK, on Google you can see pictures
    of Review of the Grand Fleet that is what the RN was like in 1914, I would bet every one of those ships was built in GREAT BRITAIN, but
    today you're called a little Englander if you dare to be proud of your country and speak out.
