Who Needs Terrorists???

Posted by Boghound on July 14, 2009

Workmen have caused £2 million of damage to Faslane……..The nuclear submarine base in Scotland.

Who needs to guard against terrorists when one has British workers to rely on!!

Workmen have caused £2million worth of damage at a nuclear submarine base. Contractors were fitting a new £150million jetty at HM Naval Base Clyde at Faslane when water flooded into vital wiring.

The massive jetty – the length of two football pitches – suffered major damage.

A source close to the project said: “It was being moved into place and workmen were drilling to put in
“There was a blast and water poured into electrical cells causing mayhem. It was a total disaster. Navy
chiefs were less than happy.
“There has been wrangling over who’s going to foot the bill as it’s going to cost a fortune to sort it

The Valiant Jetty is to provide berths for six new Astute-class subs – the largest and most powerful
ever commissioned by the Navy.

Evidently….Workers had been inserting four piles each as high as Nelson’s column for a new berth…….when a “mistake” allowed  gallons of seawater to gush into one of the seaward cells and therefore “infect” electrical cabling……Go for it boys CND would be proud of you……..YEH RIGHT!!!!!
