The nuttiness of the article didn't stop Chris Reynolds getting a word in

They should send the RAF out after that ship and use it for target practice - maybe Napalm it and crisp up a few of those crazed inbred cannibal rats before they make landfall and set on pets and babies....

I'm sure the rats wouldn't get off in Ireland, be much more at home in the uk anyhow and fully supported by the benefit system
