New MinAF and latest on T45 ordering

#2
And as posted elsewhere, the disturbing thing is the sudden change of emphasis to "whether" CVF will be ordered and a"possible" £14Bn shipbuilding programme.

Previously on "Liabour the RN-Slayer" there have been incessant references to "when" the CVF will be built and "an unprecedented £14Bn shipbuilding programme".

Is the truth finally sneaking out?

Bob Ainsworth used to be at the Home Office if memory serves me right, he is quite a straight-talking guy, generally. I think he will make a good MinAF.

Reading Def Questions I was pleased to see the MPs grilling him on the Qty of T45's and, as has been said 12 originally then in 2004, the White Paper stated 8 were req'd.

ABTW, It's not the Navy's requirement to have 25 FF&DD's, this is from MOD.

Bob Ainsworth said "The Royal Navy's requirement is for a fleet of 25 destroyers and frigates."

I'm sure the RN and particulary CDS and 1SL would like a couple more escorts.

Maybe they should have a word with Alan West?

If true that would make a pleasant change.
