I was in the navy once. The Royal Australian Navy. I'm afraid it's true. Joined up in 1980 and got out in 1986. Swore allegiance to Queen Elizabeth II and all her heirs and successors by law and everything. ‘Course, at the time, I didn't really realise what that meant. I didn't know they were a bunch of inbred dribblers when I was seventeen. I think you need that bit of perspective age and education gives you to figure out some of these important things. Allegiance to that pack of idiots? Your Highness? YOUR MAJESTY! Oh give me a break!
