MARS and CVF -Will they ever get to sea?

Re: New Carriers - Will they ever get to sea ?

The contract for the Fleet tankers is supposed to be let within 18 months. Before that, an assessment of the six different bidders is being undertaken to downselect to the option to go forward with.

Having said that, we've been here before 18 months ago when the clueless [email protected] stopped the selection process at the last minute, in the middle of a worldwide shipbuilding recession (builders would have given ships away!) to avoid an in-year overspend. So - don't hold your breath........

Relax; Fisher Marine or the like will rent them to us. All we need to do is provide the seamen and clankies.

Save to spend; it's the future.

Cheers guys the mind boggles. it just makes you wonder if the bean counters have clue what is going on in the real world !
After watching Ch4 dispatches I was horrified to see the amount of money wasted by Home Office and MOD mandarins this has to be reinvested into the fleet.
