Mirror: "French to join with our Navy to save us cash"

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. As Mike Jackson said on Newsnight last night, it's all very well joining forces with other nations, but when the political will isn't there due to differences in foreign policy (I think he was referring indirectly to the behaviour of the French over Iraq), what happens when the other nations decide not to play?
  2. He made a good point, he was also on the Daily Politics and was actually very measured about the whole affair, indicating subtly I felt that the need, particularly for the carriers, was pretty strong. Nice to see he is not as wholly Army-centric as Dannatt and Richards and can see the bigger picture.
