    Been listerning to the radio about defence cuts. 8% cuts to the Mod. Both Aircraft carriers to be built. But aircraft for the ships to be reduced. This was double what the Mod wanted as they were hoping for 4% cuts but this is better than expected. Not sure what happens with service personal.

    I watched some of newnight last night and they reckon the surface fleet is going to come down from its present 26 to 14 because of the associated costs. I think the f35's order was to be reduced by 2/3rds.

    Still all hearsay really until the 21st when its all offical.
