Guess 500 Years Was Long Enough

The Brits are closing Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. One of the reasons is pretty craven: They fear that if they don't build a new class of destroyers at the shipyard in Glasgow, the Scots will vote for independence.

King Henry VII had a dry dock built there in 1495. The yard built its first warship, HMS Sweepstake, in 1497.
