Status of the Navy

After reading through some of the threads here, I just found myself wondering something.

How well placed would the RN be at the moment if it was forced into a large scale, sustained conflict. To give a measure of what I'm talking about, think something between the Falklands and WW2.

Include: Size,
Man-Power
Technology
Difficulties against some countries Air Force'
etc.

Would we weather it well until the politicians pushed enough money to start building up? Or would we be up a certain creek, without a certain implement?

i dont think it would get to a position of having to retake the Falklands due to the presence of MPA i think the bigger threat is probably Putins growing ambitions, may be the Government has forgotten that we are an island nation

I was just using the Falklands as an example really. I was just considering the scale and wondered if we'd be ill-equipped to deal with it.

Don't see why not.
HALO jump on to it maybe? Or send a frigate and use its helicopter to drop someone there with a flag and pole. Wouldn't really fancy trying to climb it from a seaboat.
