There have been news articles about the possible sale of HMS Victory although the Second Sea Lord has insisted the review of Victory's funding does not condemn her. Vice Admiral Alan Massey said: 'We're extremely proud of HMS Victory. This unique warship is at the heart of the Royal Navy and there has never been any suggestion of giving her away or decommissioning the ship.' A decision over her future will be made some time next year. Meanwhile Portsmouth councillors and prospective MP's have set up an e-petition on the Number 10 website. This ship is part of our national heritage and should not be privatised
