Gosh. Are we to take it, then, that the refit is over and the UK’s most advanced warship is no longer breaking down every five minutes?

This Writer was reporting on the disastrous condition of our hugely costly Type 45 cruisers as recently as January.

Back then, we were being told electrical failures on the £1 billion warships were common and would cost tens of millions of pounds to fix.

If HMS Daring has to go into combat, it will probably need to be towed away.

Britain’s most advanced warship has reportedly been quietly deployed to the coast of Yemen in what experts claim is a bid to protect the vital Bab al-Mandeb strait – a key oil route.

While the move has not yet been publicly confirmed, the Times newspaper reported Type 45 destroyer HMS Daring had been diverted to the area, which feeds into the Suez Canal.
