Austal has successfully handed over the last of three 22 metre aluminium catamarans for operation in the Australian state of Queensland.

Completion of the three-vessel fleet for the Queensland Police Service was achieved in just over 12 months from initial order and adds to Austal’s track record in delivering multi-vessel orders on-time and on-budget.

Built at Austal’s Tasmanian shipyard – which specialises in small to medium-sized vessels – the police boats will be stationed at Yeppoon, Brisbane and Cairns, and are designed to patrol remote, tropical locations for extended periods.

Unfair Election Incentive from Bottler Brown


“Bottler” Brown is giving British voters an unfair incentive in the June 4 European Parliamentary Elections.

He has apparently threatened his party that he will stand down if the UK Independence Party beat him into third place. Current opinion polls are showing the UK Independence Party 4 points ahead of Labour, suggesting that they will come in a close second behind the Conservative Party. Indications are that the UK Independence Party is now steadily drawing ahead.

If unelected Scottish Prime Minister Gordon “Bottler” Brown is going to resign in the event that the UK Indpendence Party comes in second ahead of Labour, that is a real incentive for British Voters of all parties to go out and VOTE UK INDEPENDENCE PARTY on Thursday

It will be interesting to see how close the UK Indpendence Party can come in behind the Conservatives with a real prospect that they might even come in first as a real slap in the face for corrupt Westminster politicians, a blow for freedom against the United States of Europe, and an historic election result.

The betting is that “Bottler” Brown will rethink on Friday his new found enthusiasm for another round of Constitution wrecking with Proportional Representation for all British elections.
