Good i think its now two late to cancel the carriers but my only worry is that we buy to few aircraft to fly of them and have to few escorts.

In the great scheme of things, this is probably relatively irrelevant;

Paint and access, including all the scaffolding required during the build process will cost £105m, and has been awarded to Pyeroy of Gateshead, and Cape of Wakefield, which will form a joint venture based at Rosyth

Interesting that their new Regional Director responsible for this is ex Cape PLC, their business Partner. No doubt, once more, the Contractor will select the paint supplier to best advantage to the Contractor. Sorry, hobbyhorse fed and saddled and being rapidly hitched to a post.
