Officer overboard...

Women and children first...after me that is: Captain Francesco Schettino (pronounced "isgettingoff?) certainly won't have impressed the beautiful lady he was drinking with for much of Friday night. The Captain of the capsized Costa Concordia cruise ship [quickly becoming notorious] is now known to have abandoned the ship before most of the passengers and crew. What a complete c#nt. Click on image (copyright AP) to enlarge.

The coastguard who spotted him on shore apparently told him to "get back on the fucking ship." The fact that he needed a taxi to take him four hundred yards to a bar suggests that he knew what he'd down.

On a lighter note somebody did suggest yesterday that as Michael Gove is so keen on Her Maj having a new ship they could give her this one!

Good ol' Coast guard! :-) What would be worse for the Captain, being found to be drunk or abandoning the ship early and being found to be drunk?

I expect the repairs would be less than a new Royal Yacht so a possibility, mind you it would be a bi big even for a royal entourage.
