First it was Invincible, then Ark Royal and now its Illustrious :-(

Is there nothing this government won't scrap?
What happens when the national debt is cleared... are they going to reinstate anything or just find other ways to waste the surplus cash and then get us into debt again.. to cut more of the little left?
This is madness. Those 3 sister carriers were fascinating. Cutting one was a tragedy.. two a crime.. 3 is unforgivable.
I think what annoys me more is that they're not even going to keep them in reserve anywhere in case they're needed. No instead they just auction them by tender to be broken up into scrap. Anyone ever thought what a brilliant paintball pitch they would make?.. nightclub.. the possibilities are endless.
This government have gone too far.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

scrapped nearly all the Aircraft, now someone has realized that the Wattisham air sea Rescue wont have any military to rescue, so "They" want to get rid of them as well, absolute political madness

Good job that Hitler is Dead.....  Sad

which government was "in charge" in 1939, when a certain someone said " I have in my hand, a piece of paper........"   
surely that wasn`t a conservative government...... was it?    they wouldn`t make the same mistake twice........ would they ? ? ?

Correct but Russia has apparently been expressing an interest in our nuclear deterrent via their MP's assistant recently.
Makes you wonder why doesn't it.
