It’s See the ships. Three words and see, not sea.

No, it is SeatheShips, one word and sea, not see. I have mentioned it here before, but it is not a name you find by happenstance, and that claim has been adequately illustrated here.

For the more sporting sailor;

Sea The Stars is a champion Irish Thoroughbred racehorse. Regarded by many as one of the greatest racehorses of all time, he is best known for winning the 2000 Guineas, the Derby, the Eclipse Stakes – the first colt to accomplish this treble since 1989 – the International Stakes, the Irish Champion Stakes, and the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
SeatheShips couldn't win a Bumper au Uttoxeter in February.

Which remind of a likewise irrelevant story. I was working as a night watch in the Aker ship-yard in Oslo. An in the early morning I picked up the newspaper that we received one free of, and which could be studied in the small office-cabin that us watchmen occupied at the gate of the yard. The papers ranged from the Stalinist "Friheten" (Freedom) to the ultra conservative "Morgenbladet" (The Morning Blade). And there were a number of workers that when leaving their shift popped in and leafed through a paper. Particularly on Fridays. What I found perplexing was that none of the socialist papers were ever touched. Not "The Freedom" , not "The Class War", not "The Worker's Newspaper", what everyone wanted was the two on the outer right, particularly "The Morning Blade". So I had to ask one of the better know reds inthe yard, one usually with much revolutionary fervour behind every comment he made upon anything. But now he was curt and laconic - "Superior turf reporter." (And that may explain why poor workers vote for the likes of Donald Trump?)

Very good SJB. My Uncle Teddy (so the family has it) always took the Salvation Army's War Cry. He reckoned there was wining runner encoded in it somewhere (I wonder if this was deliberate propaganda to groom the heathen with the Devil's music).

I don't know if E-S would be allowed to read such a publication.

This is the same uncle that considered it to be not gambling if the bet could be afforded. His 'system' was every bit as good as Pa's, which wasn't.

I am a big fan and have the utmost respect for the Salvation Army, manys a seaman got a helping hand from them when no one else gave a damn. Worthy of big support. Their charitable nature is such that they would be glad if Teddy Varley won a few bob on the horses.
Next time someone jingles a tambourine near you be solid and throw a 50 in it.
I guarantee you will feel better.

I've noticed many Socialist/Communist publications were too wordy for the average proletariat.

If we are to enter into a discussion of why the democratic socialist parties - type British Labour - are leaking voters to the populist right, I will suggest a perfectly simple explanation. It is this; back when the Labour parties could produce a majority on their own, what Labour voters voted for was more pay and better conditions for the workers. Period. Today those that runs those parties are out to save and liberate and create sympathy for every downtrodden grouping imaginable. Which may well be highly laudable, but not competitive with the simple message of the populist right, that promises the results Labour once promised to obtain by squeezing the worker-exploiting capital-owners, by keeping the hungry foreigners out and getting rid of all speed and joy-hampering rules and regulations.
