It has been brought to the Politburo's attention that subversives and dissidents have been spreading rumours suggesting Comrade Chairman Beach has been 'holidaying' with 'property developers' on his 'yacht' in the 'Med'.
There is no truth in these rumours. For the avoidance of doubt, Comrade Chairman Beach has been on a gruelling inspection tour of the Adriatic Fleet as part of his duties as Commander-in-Chief, Thanet Naval Forces. During his tour he spent an hour on board the Wantsum class cruiser Marshall Godden taking tea with a Committee Chairman who had a complaint about the Workers' Collective. We understand that during this conversation State funding was NOT discussed, and that the lackey of capitalist oppression was given a thorough 'carpeting' by the Chairman.
