Fourth Trident Sub To Be Sold To Iran?
Close sources today speculated that the fourth Vanguard class Trident nuclear deterrent submarine will be decommissioned and sold to a Middle East based company for conversion into a floating hotel. Prime Minister Gordon Broon stated that the move was not due to the MoD's inability to pay the crew's wages but a bold step to encourage Iran, Pakistan, India and North Korea to abandon their nuclear programs. Citing the £17.50 sale price as a major contribution to investment in middle-class people working hard during the global recession, McBroon refused to comment directly when asked if the deal had been brokered by TB Peace Industries Inc, which announced £1.5 billion annual profits today. Defence sources stated that the sale price could have been as low as £10 if work to remove the missile silos and associated electronics was carried out in the UK.
Iranian President Madmaninadinajaqet stated that the submarine would help the tourism industry in Abadan. President Sarkozy made the following comment "Ha-Ha" and Sr Barroso of the EU proposed that the UK's UN Security Council seat could be transferred to the EU in return for an increase in UK budget contributions.
