    almost every government including the Irish and American are making / have made cuts to the defence budget so what makes us any different?

    it is a necessity, and to be honest we can afford to tighten our belts in certain areas to make us a leaner and meaner force.

    not every change will be welcome and some will seem barking mad but the SDSR will leave us better placed to focus our efforts more effectively.

    with the appointment of a Military Adviser hopefully these cuts will be made in the right places, so it's a good call.

      WOW! The senior service are getting raped by the cuts.

      Ark Royal scrapped, as are all harriers.
      New carriers will only carry helis, and one will be mothballed immediately, and probably sold soon after.
      No more Navy Fixed wing.
      Trident renewal delayed to 2028.

        Harrier was supposed to be replaced by JFA anyway, Sea Harrier was retired in the last round of cuts.... the only fixed wing that have had in the last few years are trainers etc

          "supposed to". Now it looks like the new carrier(s) be an expensive replacement for HMS Ocean.
