You know it makes sense.

Somehow I feel that the best financial sense here would be to stretch out the construction of the carriers until such time as they are no longer required, then to call in the scrappers and carry on, at a fairly low tempo, until they are no more. Keep the bits, and we can use them to build the next generation of carriers. No need to worry about training sailors or fuel or planes. If Liechtenstein can get by without an operational carrier, why can't we?


(It's not even worth debating the poles.)

Makes sense for the Poles to build them. By the time they're built we'll have to sell them to the Poles for some of their oil shale cash.

As 'Prashant' wisely said these many months ago on these pages...not verbatim...Britain could solve half of its money problems immediately if it stopped ALL foreign aid now.
The other half would disappear if we disappeared from the EU
I am, of course, sorry for the guys who have been 'let go' in the shipyards....they probably don't deserve that...but we have all been lumbered with things we neither expected nor wanted & about which we can do SFA until we regain our spirit & the independence of these isles.
The employment of the Poles is simple economics for any cash-strapped entity, be it the country, the company, the family or the individual & those who complain loudest are the first to practice this common sense.
And so it will continue until, if ever, we get our bloody act together.

Oh how they spin.Brown and Blair ordered these carriers to give work to the shipbuilders in Browns constituency,also to be part of the European Navy.Camoron,upon entering No. 10,has decided that we just can not afford them,can not afford the Fighters to fly off them and,can not scrap them,as Brown signed the contracts that to cancel them,would be too expensive.Now,to add insult to injury,skilled British workers are to be sacked as Polish workers are 30% cheaper.By the time they start to claim benefits,it will probably work out dearer!
