Re: British aircraft carriers
The Treasury has always had the final say - together with short-sighted politicians who can never agree on anything beyond the next election which might lead them to lose.
As someone said - you get the government you vote for.
sadly the Treasury seem s to have the final say!
Just read several articles in the British media about the lack of funding to allow the carriers to be operationally effective.
1. Lack of funding for additional aircraft (F-35s).
2. Cost overrun for AWAC.
3. Lack of funding to build adequate number of escorts.
4. Lack of funding for an adequate fleet train.
Are these problems real or is it just hysteria from the British media?
