Falling educational standards ?

The BBC website carries a report of the collision between a US warship and an oil tanker, it says the warship sustained damage to it's port side 'which is the left hand side of the ship facing forward'.

FFS, is our educational system now producing such a nation of ill-educated numpties that the BBC feels it needs to explain to it's readers just which side of a ship the port side is ?

Admiral Nelson will be spinning in his grave, as would soapy, except happily he's still with us.

Perhaps you should have posted a link to the BBC website, oh, on second thoughts we don't want to upset the board idiot.
