I hope a conflict happens soon so this Tory government realy sees the true importance of the Royal Navy and re-build it back up to strength.
In the immortal words of John McEnroe you cannot be serious!1
No British Government of any complexion, or indeed any British political party, not even the far right, has ever advocated that Britain should start a war as an aggressor nation. The whole point of British Foreign and Defence policy has always been to avoid war by deterrence, and only go to war where British and Allied interests are attacked. That is rightly the policy of all countries and alliances, including the EU.
I for one certainly do not want a conflict with Argentina. Britain has recently been involved in too many conflicts, yet our armed forces are still cut down in size to save money.
The Conservative Party in Britain no longer sees Britain as a self governing country. Our armed forces role is to be parcelled out under NATO or future EU or UN command, and on the basis of the analysis in your above posts the RN will only be a small force. To anybody who voted for the Tories for strong British armed forces, or to regain sovereignty from the EU, I would say you were sold a dummy and voted for the WRONG party. One Tony Blair was bad enough, now we have another, with his ''big society'' Blairite fantasy. The RN can hope for ''Cool Britannia'' at best.
