So you're not contesting that the fact that it was 'sailing away' is a red herring - just trying to split hairs over the few minutes that it would take to reverse course eh?

So, for the sake of argument, let's assume it took double that time - ten minutes, say (it certainly wouldn't take any longer than that). How much less of a threat to British forces do you estimate that would make it?
