New Aircraft Carrier Postponed???


War Hero
First off unless you want 'the world according to the housewife' perspective, I would find a better source for your news than GMTV.

I imagine what they were talking about was the claims that an MOD department defecit of 6 billion is based on overly optomistic spending forecasts and will likely reach something in the region of 36 billion in the coming years. Labour are still, at least for now, committed to seeing the carriers through to completion.
