Sir: Perhaps the Government should do with Britannia what we all do with some beloved old "banger" that really has to go - sell it to someone who'll appreciate it, in this case as a fine example of 1950s ship design and buy something that is more up to date with Her Majesty's circumstances.

Rather than decommission Britannia, I suggest keeping it as a sort of prestige floating hotel that spends most of its time in the harbours and ports of the UK.
