    Gorgon – what a spaz…

    Military decisions?
    Military advice?
    Military reasons?

    Gorgon: where is the military advice that suggested we pay billions of pounds for one carrier mothballed and another with no planes?

    Our carrier fleet will soon be smaller than Thailand’s.

    We might be able to lend a ship to the French, but that will render it less than useless. The French have pointedly lent almost zero support to recent major NATO operations.

    In the Falklands, HMS Sheffield was sunk by a French-supplied missile, fired from a French-supplied plane.

    Fuсk off, Gorgon.

      Gordy – talks shit, does shit and looks shit

      It was better when he fucked off north of the border

      in fact all the bloody jocks can go home – and sort out the nationalists or they will be refugees in england for ever

      concrete pump says:

      The French have been anti English for hundreds of years, their air traffic controllers don’t like speaking English (international aviation law requires them to) to British jets landing, or even flying over France.
      Their arrogance is astounding, their ignorance incredible and their hygiene lacking.
      If you think these are vile stereotypes, then go to Paris for a month….

      P. Doff says:

      And if the French are to share one of the English carriers there could be a problem or two. The English and French drive on opposite sides of the road. Imagine planes coming in to land from opposite directions… bit of a Navy Lark scenario with the Captain shouting to the approaching pilots, “Left hand down a bit… no, right hand down a bit… zut alors, putain merde!”

      Was it Gordon,s fault today when cave in Dave signed our Army over to the French,was it Gordons fault that Dave was going to get us a freeze on the eu budget then handed over 2.9%,was it Gordons fault that the Eu treaty is getting changed and cast iron Dave bottled it on another of his promises ,Labour are ahead in the polls and we are only 5 months into this farce ,so if and thats a big if this lasts much longer we willl get a better majority than we did in 97 ,come on Ed make Britain great again

      Those carriers were ordered and will be built for ONE purpose only, the EU want a blue water fleet and those carriers will form the basis for that fleet.

      All the bullshite and waffle about no money to equip them with planes is pure lies and deceptions to ease the fears of the grassroots. There are no f*cking jets on order because the French will supply the jets and the British supply the carriers and the EU will house the command and control and the Germans will provide the surface escorts and the euroweenies provide f*ck all but will want senior command positions anyway and all the time this is happening guess who slips down the command chain as more euroslime jump aboard the new UEUN(united euro union navy)flagships?

      All the lies and deceptions coming from Quisling central cannot hide the facts and the reality of their betrayal. The greedy ambitious eyes of the new euroslime commissars see those carriers as their own, they are the very basis of the new federal Reich in the making and the coalition has just handed these scum the ways and means without even bothering to tell the British people the truth.

        JSF says:

        ” There are no f*cking jets on order”

        The JSF is on order ( a UK /US collaboration). It’s due to supply one of the carriers with aircraft and will be STOL like the Harrier was.


        • 151
          Tugboatden says:

          And the carriers are designed to be platforms for launching unmanned drones that haven’t been axed in the defence review.


        • 163
          13eastie says:


          The “order” has been changed last month to the F-35C carrier variant.

          Nobody knows how many the Navy will get or when they will get them.

          The military cost-benefit analysis upon which anyone can have justified buying two impotent and defenceless carriers, with the distant prospect of an unknown future fixed-wing capability is non-existent.

          True-to-form, Brown spent someone else’s money on a fleet of dreadnought white elephants.


        • 209
          Senator Bloodn' Gore, says:

          The Harrier was not a STOL it was a vertical uplift.


          • JSF says:

            The harrier was used as a STOL. That’s why the Ark Royal had the ramp fitted at the bow. It saves on fuel. It can use VTOL but it burns too much fuel. I should have called it a V/STOL aircraft



          • Harpic says:

            Then why are they having to fit catapult and arresters to the ships if they are to fly STOL. They are to fly the naval version of the European JFS I guess


          • Airey Belvoir says:

            True, the Harrier could not take off verically with any useful load, and to land vertically it had to do so with no bombs left, (no ‘bring-back” to use the jargon) and only 90 seconds of fuel. The floor of the Adriatic is carpeted with ordnance dumped by Harriers during the Kosovo shenanigans.


          • Devil's Dumplings says:

            Oh FFS – Get it right. STOVL is what it was: Short Take Off Vertical Landing. Its better to stop and land than land and stop!


          • flogging a dead horse says:

            Devil said..

            ” Oh FFS – Get it right. STOVL is what it was: Short Take Off Vertical Landing”

            It could take off vertically. It could land vertically. It could do short take offs and it could land on a short runway.
            In most cases it did the short take off and short landing. This was to save on fuel and so increase it’s air patrol time. As it did during the Falkands War.


          • Mustafa Kip says:



        • 312
          roberto calico says:

          The Harrier was VTOL not STOL although it had a STOL capability.

      That’s how I read it – ‘Rosyth is the only naval dockyard which can refit these carriers in the future’.

      That’s why the contracts could not be terminated.

    Sophie says:

    As sickening as it is to see the great destroyer mincing about in the Commons again I fear we are no better off with Cameron.

    Cameron: “I am a Eurosceptic”:

    Performance thus far:

    Paid new demand for extra £430 million to the socialist EU.

    Agreed to put the clocks forward 2 hours to match EU time.

    Destroyed British military independence by relying on the French for aircraft & weapons of last resort.

    Schemed & lied to deny his people a new referendum that he previously promised ( twice ).

    If rusty Dave is a Eurosceptic, what the hell would he be like if he was pro EU?

    Unbelievable – it is obvious that the Lib Dems rule the roost in the coalition – even though under Cleggs leadership they lost MPS at the last election. How can they hold sway when they were so roundly rejected by the voters – is it really democratic?

    When will the real Conservative Party stop supporting the Euro extremist Cameron & his ultra radical Lib Dem chums & move to UKIP?

    I am sick of this kowtowing to socialist Europe, the appeasement of undemocratic Euro extremism & the outright lies & duplicity of David Cameron.

That he then went on to virtually bankrupt the UK with not a hint of contrition from him or the fools that not only put him there but kept him there is beyond belief.

      Mr Wright, permit me to put forward some suggestions as to how your abominable post might be improved. Your grasp of spelling, grammar and punctuation shows you to be a son of NuLiebour’s so-called education policies, and I wish to help you overcome the educational disadvantage that you have obviously suffered.

      Try this:

      It was really so good of the bullying old bastard to put in a rare appearance in the House, bearing in mind how much we pay him and the money he took off us in the long period of office he enjoyed – including some very dubious expense claims. He is clearly standing up for his own constituency (not area, please) because he would like to avoid the situation whereby even his demonic, Liebour-loving constituents must be tempted to kick him into the gutter where he belongs. Yes, we Conservatives (please note the spelling of the word Tory) are indeed extremely bitter about the way he brought the banks to the point of serial meltdown, and how eye-watering sums of our money were squandered in trying to repair the dreadful damage he did to everything financial.

      That should do it.

          You have to assume that voting rights will now be extended to other currently excluded classes; the insane and Peers of the Realm.

            I think you’ll find the insane are not excluded from voting.

    Gordon’s government always treated the carriers as a political weapon. For 13 years the Order was announced trailing clouds of glory in the prequel to an election, only to be quietly dumped a few weeks after the event. It is a fitting epitaph to Salvator Mundi’s political career that his last act was to ensure 4 years of extremely expensive benefit payments in an area made derelict by 13 years of Labour chaos by handing the carrier build on to the Coalition as a painstakingly constructed poison pill. Military considerations from a man responsible for the death and maiming of hundreds of British military personnel through deliberately starving them of the resources needed to fight effectively?

      Engineer says:

      Not necessarily.

      The deployment and home base of the carriers, and all other naval assets, should be a decision for the Navy taken on the grounds of military strategy. When refit becomes due, the yard best able to complete the work cost-effectively should be used.

      The government may see fit to share work around among yards to ensure the maintenance of capability in several places. No government should commit itself to refit contracts on ships that are not yet built.


      • 266
        Sage (and onions too) says:

        Much better the refit target is in France rather than the UK. If these boats ever get to be used in anger, the ports of refit will be very high on the list of targets to take out pdq by whoever is causing the rumpus against the Yuroeens.

        bobthedog says:

        Last time I was on one of her Majesty’s grey funnel line, we were subject to Compulsory Competitive Tendering when it came to refit time. We spent 4 days sailing up the east coast waiting for the results of the process to find out which particular shipyard we were going to on the Tyne.

        Clearly Brown wants the Royal Navy to be glued into paying Rosyth for the duration of the lifetime of these carriers. Not a wise decision.

      Philip McArthur says:

      Margaret Thatcher was ELECTED three times. Her main concern was to stand up for Britain and give it integrity. People from the Left always bring up the pit closures in their attempts to denigrate her.Prior to the 80’s is was a terrible thing that a man had to go down the pits and work in those conditions, then as soon as she started to close them down, it somehow became a hallowed job. In todays eco friendly ethos of the Left, I don’t understand why they don’t appreciate the reduction in pollution by burning of fossil fuels.
      Brown was NEVER elected. He lied and cheated the British people. He had no respect for his predecessor and was obstructive in his working relationship with him. He lied about the funding of our Troops. He lied about the way he treated his colleagues and staff. He was and still is a self serving Bastard…. Respect… you must be joking.

      They tried from 1914 to 1918, losing 1.4 million men with another 4 million wounded. They lost over 200,000 in WW2, as well as 140,000 or so in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71. We can fairly say that the French have defended Paris, although on two out of three occasions they were unsuccessful.

It is standardised, pasteurised, advertised, pressurised Euro lager that bears no resemblance to either beer or lager. Ask any German lager drinker.

    The Stella marketing team clearly have no shame and have had a embarrassment bypass. The foam on the top “seals in the flavour”? No! it doesn’t! It makes sure you don’t actually get a full glass of their overpriced fizzy gloop!

    When will George Osborne tell the truth ??

    Last week three British churches (the Methodist, Baptist, and United Reformed) issued an important joint press release which has been completely ignored by the mainstream press. It is time that we woke up and paid attention to it.

    Perhaps the language they used was too polite. However their allegation is significant and demands a response from the Treasury: the churches are saying that Chancellor George Osborne grossly exaggerated the scale of benefit fraud in his spending review two weeks ago.

    George Osborne told MPs: ‘Nor will fraud in the welfare system be tolerated any more. We estimate that £5 billion a year is being lost in this way – £5 billion that others have to work long hours to pay in their taxes.’

    However that figure is not true. I have now been onto the Treasury and it is clear that the real figure for fraud in the benefits system is £1.5 billion a year, or less than one third of the sum which Osborne claimed in his spending statement. It is true that there were benefit overpayments of some £5.2 billion in the last financial year (2009/10) but the majority of these according to HMRC figures were error rather than fraud.
