So the Queen has made the Duke of Edinburgh the Lord High Admiral of the Navy. Sounds to me like something out of Gilbert and Sullivan.

Still, the kiltie Greek was at least a proper naval officer, albeit many years ago. And it's not as if he actually has to lead our much-reduced fleet into battle.

On a day when it is announced that another old rogue is to become Sir Brucie, we should be grateful for small consolations.
