This is the first overseas naval base Britain has opened since WWII.

It gives the Royal Navy reach throughout the gulf. Glad The Duke of York was there for the opening.

I think Prince Andrew is one of those people that rarely fail at what they try, much to the chagrin of many less talented people. His ability to mix internationally with the top echelons of foreign Governments, particularly in the middle east, has been a considerable asset to the UK and often problematic for Andrew.

It is a pity that in his role with UK Trade & Investment, part of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, as the United Kingdom's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment didn't end well. While he moved around mostly the Middle East and Europe at the behest of HM's Government, he mixed with the good, the great and the not very good at all, the only interest the paparazzi had was gifting him with the appellation of "Air Miles Andy" and moaning because he travelled first or business class and packed his golf clubs.

The obvious fact that his hospitality bills were high as a result of the people he entertained seemed beyond understanding, although the government was very happy to take credit for the trade deals he brokered via the entree a British Prince could continue to give them to places otherwise out of reach.

Never one to be down for long, Pitch@Palace is a roaring success and off goes Andrew to Bahrain:

A pretty anodyne sort of statement, but I'm sure golf is in there somewhere. IMO Prince Andrew really is one of the most useful and least appreciated members of the BRF, but don't take my word for it, read those posts below by eya et al.
