Defence Management: "'The Carrier Debacle Is Clouding Real Maritime Security Issues"

Well yes. We're just rubbish at changing the fact, which is a crying shame really. The big problem is, it is such an easy target really, it's a massive project that is going very badly tits up and is therefore an easy target. Shame, really.
The QE ship is not a debacle - the build appears to be going very well. The debacle is the continuing campaign to render the ship ineffective by letting the RAF propose the aircraft.
