Re: Future Australian subs...
Ooooo! I get the "longer than 20 minutes" joke at the end of the article. Saw the YouTube video of the Aussie politician telling an Australian Admiral that a pumpjet submarine could only stay underwater for 20 minutes. When he told her it was much longer, but the exact time was classified, she told him it wasn't classified. (Whereupon the "speaker," or "chairperson"...whomever controls the floor...then told her she did not get to decide what was and was not classified.) There is a certain amusing "universal quality" to politicians the world over.
Here's the video:
