That sinking feeling.

It was May 31st 1916 when the Royal Navy clashed with German warships off the coast of Denmark’s Jutland peninsula.

Today David Cameron led the Battle of Jutland commemoration. He hosted the ceremony in Orkney because one hundred years ago, the Royal Navy sailed from the Orkney Scapa Flow base.

Among the visiting dignitaries were German President Joachim Gauck and our own Princess Royal who appeared to be sporting more medals than Idi Amin.

It would seem that DC is continuing to develop his ‘sinking’ theme in tandem with his EU Referendum campaign.
