    Of course,it is a big problem which you don't have enough ships,
    but you have so many unneccesary islands.

    “What it shows is that the number of frigates and destroyers we have got now is insufficient. We need more ships as a matter of urgency.”

    Keeping the sneaky Argies away from the Falklands is money well spent

    The RN is overstretched. This is a fact.

    All navys are now, even the US navy. Spending on military is at it's lowest point in history. People prefer healthcare and benefits over a large navy.
