    Apologies if I sounded as though I was being arrogant in assuming how Germans viewed themselves. Your point about corruption is an interesting one. Would I be correct to assume that many Germans view...

    To me, the fundamental problem for the EU is simply the weight of history. Any sort of monetary union drives the whole towards economic union. Quite simply with single interest rate there needs to a...

    Why on Earth would the Germans pay damages and "shut up"? Sorry to say this but is a piece of totally uninformed nonsense that seems to be sheer bile. You may well hate Eurocrates (I never liked...

    The real question is surely how many it would take to render a CV combat ineffective - i.e. inflict so much damage to critical systems such as electronics, radar, and the ability to launch, retrieve...

    It terms of the police, its a definite 20% cut in funding, in real terms. The government argues that this can all be done by cutting paperwork... I'd be very surprised!
    Army cut to 92,000 despite...

    Very quiet night in UK... it's blown over for just now - presumably because they all have new trainers, TV's, I-Pads and I-Phones... They will lie low until they want some more kit, and when the...

    I don't (and haven't) disagreed with your succinct and detailed analysis. My point was that the police were simply too lax on Sunday night - there was ample evidence that the copycat pattern was...

    One night, fair play to that sort of strategy. Two nights, I'll accept it. Three nights? Totally unacceptable. And the sad truth is that this is potentially just the beginning. Budget cuts...

    We do have a fraction of the US murder rate and gun crime - generally it works...


    The problem is that letting itself burn itself out has so far only allowed the problem to spread and grow. The...

    I do feel for the police - with the bystander who was assaulted and the debacle over the student protests earlier this year - they don't feel that they can use force. What is clear is that their...

    Some idiot on Five Live immediately popped up to claim it was to do with the legacy of Black unemployment in Birmingham... utter b*ll*cks... get a damn job rather than use an excuse to rob the very...

    I still can't believe that Livingston and his ilk are still pretending that this is some popular uprising against the cuts - whereas the sad truth is that this is just utter mindless violence from...

    JMH - you do have a wonderful ability to regurgitate what others have posted as if it was your own thinking. gunnut had already pointed out that the option to retro-fit catapults exists with the CVF...

    Ideally, yes, but you have to understand the realities of the situation. At some stage, Ocean will be in re-fit.

    The brand new CVF's wont be.

    Therefore, as now, one of the CVF's will play a...

    We don't really need (in the short-term) anymore LPD's. We have Ocean, Albion and Bulward (LPDs) and the Bay class (4 ships) LSLs (sort of a budget LPD).

    At lot of that is supposition - given that "two hulls" are under threat. Logically, this suggests 5+6, however, iirc the funding for 7 & 8 exists. However, as you say, its all very unclear at the...
