    For experts they don't seem to think very long term either. :roll:

    The usual regrettable and intrinsically stupid idea that defence is just some sort of hobby to be judged by 'affordability'. What we cannot afford is future defeat.

    JJ - Apologies - as I was writing this, your post vanished.

    I am sorry that you saw it in that light.

    I almost invariably reproduce verbatim the title the publication has given to its article in the Subject Line of a new thread and made no exception on this occasion.

    I did consider adding to it at the time, but didn't. I have now, having read your observation.

    To be honest, the interesting question is not why I copied the title "Carriers Cut", but why the journalist at the Portsmouth News used that title him/herself?

    I'll have a wild stab in the dark - to sell more papers?!! Bloody sensationalists!

    It worked though - made me look anyway!
