BBC: "Defence Budget 'Balanced' - Hammond"

#2
Balanced in the favour of having to operate with the armed forces of the EU and no longer being able to do anything unilaterally.

That kind of balanced.
 
#5
Balanced as in "you've got 15 billion to spend so don't come asking for any fancy kit that will take us over that spending limit" The next lot of Tridents are looking very shakey.

To all of you presently serving in the RN: What's morale like in an Incredible Shrinking Navy?

In my time, 52 - 66, the RN got a lot smaller but even when I left we still had seven carriers, 31 destroyers and 81 frigates. (I've checked in a '95 Janes Fighting Ships). Quite a few were in reserve but even then.
