    What a really ignorant thing to say.

    Do you have any proof of this or are you just being an arse?

    You may be right but Glasgow isn't a seat of devolved government in the UK ....

    A brutal assessment of the Royal Navy first published in the Official Journal of the Navy League of Australia and republished in a UK Defence Blog.

    http://votesindefence.org.uk/the-bri...vation-part-i/

    "Unfortunately, renaming the Type 26 the ‘global combat ship’ does not actually make it any more ‘global’ or combat-effective than either its Type 23 predecessors or its foreign competitors. The GCS is merely the latest conservative and expensive frigate design to come down the BAE- Royal Navy turnpike, one that is as likely to be an export flop as every major British warship design has been since the Leander class frigates of the 1970s."

    Ouch...

    Ah to be fair leander was bought by the dutch...And the Kiwis found that one of them makes an excellent diving reef..
    Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?

    The Indians and the Aussies built them as well. The last three Leanders in RNZN service were sunk as dive reefs. Good ships in their day.

    I see the leaks are growing in terms of what the UK is going to cut, seems Albion and Bulwark maybe on the block as well:
