Only 3 New Bombers to be built ??

I see Blair and his mob are discussing the possible cutting down of our SSNB Fleet to maybe three Boats in the future.

Now call me old fashioned but that seems to me a way of saying that we are going to leave ourselves thread bare at times with these boats when they are taking there turns for refit and also it will mean longer Partol times for all there lucky crew members.

Or, as another thought has just occured to me,will they have 3 crews per boat ??

It'll be kept at four in the end, I'd imagine. Ch4 news seems to think that losing one boat would save less than £1 Bn in the life of it.
