Press Release to coincide with the introduction of the new Type 45 Destroyers.
Details have been released regarding Australia introduction of the next generation of fighting ships.
The Royal Australian Navy is proud of the cutting edge capability of the fleet of Type 45 destroyers.
Costing $750 million, they have been designed to meet the needs of the 21st century; in addition to state of the art technology, weaponry, and guidance systems,
the ships will comply with the very latest employment, equality, health & safety and human rights legislation
They will be able to remain at sea for several months and positively bristle with facilities.
For instance, the new user friendly crow's nest comes equipped with wheelchair access.
Live ammunition has been replaced with paintballs to reduce the risk of anyone getting hurt and to cut down on the number of compensation claims.
Stress councilors and lawyers will be on duty 24hrs a day, and each ship will have its own onboard industrial tribunal
The crew will be 50/50 men and women, and balanced in accordance with the latest Government directives on race, gender, sexuality, and disability.
Sailors will only have to work a maximum of 37hrs per week in line with Brussels Health & Safety rules even in wartime!
All bunks will be double occupancy, and the destroyers will all come equipped with a maternity ward situated on the same deck as the Gay Disco.
Tobacco will be banned throughout the ship, but cannabis will be allowed in the Officer's Wardroom
The Royal Australian Navy is eager to shed its traditional reputation for "Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash".
Out goes the occasional rum ration which is to be replaced by Perrier water, although sodomy remains, this has now been extended to include all ratings under 18.
The lash will still be available but only by request
Saluting officers has been abolished because it is elitist; it is to be replaced by the more informal "Hello Sailor"
All notices on boards will be printed in 37 different languages and Braille
Crew members will no longer be required to ask permission to grow beards or moustaches, even the women
The Defence Department is working on a new "Non specific" flag based on the controversial British Airways "Ethnic" tailfin design,
because the White Ensign is considered to be offensive to minorities
The ship is due to be launched soon in a ceremony conducted by Captain Hook from the Auburn Park Mosque who will break a petrol bomb over the hull.
The ship will gently slide into the water to the tune of "In the Navy" by the Village People played by the Royal Australian Navy band
Sea Trials are expected to take place, when the first of the new destroyers HMAS Cautious, sets out on her maiden mission.
It will be escorting boat loads of illegal immigrants across the Timor sea to ports on the West coast.
The Prime Minister said that
"While the ships reflected the very latest of modern thinking they were also capable of being up-graded to comply with any new legislation"
Her final words were
"Australia never, never waives the rules!"
