Posh boys and their toys

The Independent reports:

The Royal Navy's largest ship made its way up the River Thames today as part of a security exercise ahead of the Olympics in London.
The amphibious assault ship, HMS Ocean, will be docked at Greenwich as a precaution against any potential terrorist attacks during the games....The Minstry of Defence said today that four Royal Navy and four army Lynx helicopters will operate from the 21,500-tonne ship.The ship is fitted with torpedoes, guns and radar and can house 1,100 people.
All very well, but it's not going to be much help in the face of a suicide bomber.
