I doubt if those F35's will be bouncing any bombs and certainly not at a Β£100m each.

Cruise missiles directed from some American Portakabin type structure on one of 'our' RAF bases will be the real order of the day - they only cost Β£1.5m each according to The Economist. After all we need to put something on that new carrier Roll eyes

But still, a revival of proud squadron to be sure, whatever and from wherever they fly.  

 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.
