More Doubts on the Carriers

The current government's plans to build 2 replacement carriers (CVF) to replace the 3 existing (CVS) are further put in doubt as the development spend assumes that a further carrier to a similar specification would be procured by France.

However, with a Presidential Election imminent in France the French carrier is being used as a political football by the Socialist front runner.

As if the prospect of us getting these necessary assets was not in enough trouble on this side of the Channel!
