  • Britain's Grand Lady No More

    It was announced today by a Dubai World investment firm that the R.M.S. Queen Elizabeth 2 has been sold for $20 million pounds to an undisclosed firm and will be scrapped in China. I feel heartsick she won't be able to be preserved like she so deserves. Farewell, grand lady...and thank you for the memories.

    What a shame! Some idiots wanted to tear down a Wright built house and replace it with one of their own monstrosities, thank goodness someone answered the outcry. Where was the outcry here?

      *Breathes a sigh of relief* Soon after this was published, Cunard released this statement:

      We have noted the messages of understandable concern with regards to the recent article in the Daily Mail with reference to QE2. We remain in close contact with Dubai and can reassure you that to the very best of our knowledge this story is pure speculation - one of a number of stories and rumours as we have seen over recent months. Our best advice would be to ignore the story.

      Best regards,
      Cunard Line.

        Thank the stars, she deserves to be preserved for future generations.

          She hasn't been British for a few years. Was supposed to be turned into a floating hotel by a company in Dubai over the next year or two.

            Britain could not afford to keep her after her carrier so she was sold. That is business.

              Matt, what memories. It's a ship after all. In so many of your post you want to turn every old ship into a museum. Where is the dough coming from?

                Hi

                For a great maritime nation we have a rather low emotional attachment to many of the famous vessels this nation has built.

                Though its loss to a scrappy will be sad, do we really want to be saddled with its upkeep and no doubt it would soon fall out of fashion, and gradually fall into disrepair.

                Regards

                  My point exactly.

                  The new Queen will be the new improved Grand British lady.
