- Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to create a new national flagship.
- The ship is said to be worth 255 million francs.
- It will be the flagship of Great Britain for the first time since 1997.
The Prime Minister of Great Britain, Boris Johnson (56), wants to send a signal to the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. The Prime Minister wants to build a new national flagship for £ 200 million (equivalent to more than 255 million francs).
According to a report by «spiegel.de», Great Britain will receive a flagship for the first time since 1997. The royal ferry “Britannia” was demoted and has since been established as a museum in Scotland.
However, the new ship is set to play an entirely different role. As Johnson emphasized, it should “include England as a large and independent maritime mercantile nation.” It should also serve to organize high-level trade talks and political summits.
Construction of the ship is scheduled to begin on Downing Street next year and will take about 5 years. The ship would then be operational for about 30 years. Traditionalists insist on naming the ship after Queen Elizabeth II’s recently deceased husband Prince Philip.
