Hi,

Me 2018Greg Lance-Watkins 1

In this series journalist Marcus Stead

and veteran campaigner and blogger, Greg Lance-Watkins

discuss big issues affecting all our lives.

In this podcast, Marcus Stead and Greg Lance-Watkins consider:

Twenty Minute Topic Episode 57: A New Royal Yacht …

BRITANNIA

The royal family and the government have decided not to refit or replace the royal yacht Britannia, the first sign that Queen Elizabeth II will cut back on some expensive trappings of Britain,s monarchy, the Financial Times reported Saturday, Sept. 27, 1997.

Twenty Minute Topic Episode 57: A New Royal Yacht …

THE GOVERNMENT has, in 2021, confirmed that a new royal yacht costing £200 million will be built and commissioned.

In this podcast, Marcus Stead and Greg Lance-Watkins discuss the merits of the project. They are both strongly in favour of it, arguing that the Blair government’s decision to scrap its predecessor, Royal Yacht Britannia in 1997 was a serious mistake that even Mr Blair himself went on to regret.

Events held on board Royal Yacht Britannia helped raise £3 billion for the Treasury between 1991 and 1995 alone. A new royal yacht would act as a status symbol and could be a tremendous asset in forming trade deals and bringing jobs to the United Kingdom.

Marcus and Greg argue that arguments against it are based on class snobbery, a foolish myth that it is only used for members of the Royal Family to take holidays on,  and fails to take into account that the £200 million cost will be rapidly recouped in terms of the trade deals and jobs the yacht’s activities will generate.

We do not claim to be experts in any particular field but with Marcus aged 36 and Greg aged 75 we offer a wide range of experience and are both avid absorbers of information, on a global basis.

Our aim is not to lecture at our audience but to provide a catalyst and starting point for consideration, we hope to stimulate discussion and help to break the all too prevalent modern disease of Group Think by providing our independent perspectives!

In many ways, you may, at first sight, consider our views as extreme, as both Marcus and I are disinclined to regurgitate perceived wisdoms without considering the facts in a balanced manner & studying both sides of the issue.
