The sun was over the yardarm. In the Tibetan navy.
Whereas the sun never sets on what's left of The British Empire, that's now metamorphosized into
Commonwealth and the British Overseas Territories.

Speaking of which I've been waiting for our esteemed British govt Business secretary and Trade
Secretary to start tearing the CBI off a strip about the lack of Arabic & South East
Asian language skills amongst British businesses engaged in international trade, now that
the emphasis is to turn our nose up at doing any real business in the EU, with a
Hard Brexit on the horizon.

Thus taking into account the wonderous opportunities to be had East of Suez.
Plus the redeployment of the UK's spanking new Aircraft Carrier to remind them that
Britannia still rules the waves, although of course this is proving irksome in Beijing
with the UK insisting on flying the White Ensign through international waters in
the South China Seas.
