I remember this one!

And in 2008, a naked British man was arrested after swimming across the moat and scaling the stone walls in the full view of the public, even tussling with police armed with a stick when they tried to accost him.

I think the same thing now as I did before; what the heck was the guy thinking? I wonder where he is today

I remember this one too.. Drunken Brit.. I think at one point he was running away from the pursuing Police when he turned around and started running stark bollock naked towards them... at that point the rozzers wanted none of it and scattered in all directions... ha ha ha

He was let of later in the day when he was a little more sober... received a slapped wrist I think... marvellous.

Alfie Noakes, being a personal success does not make him fit to lead an international organization.

Everything is easy while the going is good but true test of leadership is when the rubber hits the road and there is a serious crisis.

He is not fit to lead.

I'm also anti death penalty, however when thinking of the constant suffering and miserable life of this poor little girl it's horrendously heartbreaking and I'm conflicted... this guy is a waste of oxygen and it's hard to argue against a capital sentence for the bastard.

Its inevitable that they will postpone it for a year... the IOC knows this and they are just being morons by delaying this decision.

If they held it as scheduled no one would turn up (athletes and spectators) and it would be a fiscal disaster for Japan.

Also the quackery going on in the States is insane... "drink hot lemon juice to protect yourself against corona virus" and a million other pieces of twattish nonsense.

I think Japan is doing a great job... I just came back last night from a trip to USA, UK and Europe and they are all running around like headless chickens compared with Japan.

The USA especially is pitiful and it's already exploding there... they have no testing set up and it would cost people a fortune anyway... but Mike Pence is praying hard so maybe it'll be fine!!

I think Japan has done a great job so far (apart from not telling the public to stop freaking out over face masks and that they are completely useless unless you are actually already infected.!)

Communication by VHF for navigational purposes is not in accordance with the International Rules for Preventing Collisions at Sea (what we refer to as the COLREGS). It's a dangerous practice.

(I am a ship captain)

Specifically and most importantly crossing, overtaking situations, etc., which involve interaction with another vessel.

Q. How could they collide - Surely they each were aware of the others location - onboard Radar ? And would have communicated ship to ship ?

Gary,

There are many scenarios that can play out... and not enough info here to make any assumptions on speed of sinking. Many cases collisioned vessels do not sink at speed and stay afloat for a number of hours or days or never sink at all. But some will sink quickly.

Depending on cargo, type of ship, loading, watertight bulkhead configurations, weather conditions, etc etc etc, no one will know until an AIB has thoroughly investigate. Until then it is assumptions based on a dodgy report by media that no nothing about maritime matters.

Your many assumptions could be correct but then again there could be many many more scenarios. However being a Belize registered vessel does not bode well for the cargo ship being upto snuff for class and more reputable registry regulations.

The one thing that you say that I am sure is correct:

It would have been dark, cold and a very confusing situation.

Been there, seen it and done it... absolutely terrifying.

This virus have been a very sensitive issue nowadays and is continuously taking away lives of those innocents. Just hope the latest vaccine developed for it plays a good role and aid those in need.

I see you don't get hysterical about seasonal flu killing more than 15,000 innocents in UK every year and 60,000 plus innocents in the USA... probably around 25,000 in Japan every year?

Almost 200 people have been infected in Japan in the past few days...

Wrong... under 200 people have developed symptoms in the past few days so they were infected most likely within the past two weeks.

The hysteria and mis information is a worse infections than the corona virus.

Instead of blindly following internet nonsense follow the facts.

(and maybe take onboard what @Virusrex is saying; at least he is rational.)

we don't fit interlocking ventilation system between compartments on marine vessels.... Make up air to each compartment always come from outside.

Viruses on cruises are generally spread by people touching the same surfaces, not via air.

The vessel is registered in GB, which makes it British soil. End of story.

This is GB's responsibility.

International maritime law does not quite work like that.

The ultimate beneficial owner of Daimond Princess is American.

The operator of the vessel is American (although they have global offices)

The vessel is registered in Britain.
