    An aircraft carrier with no air wing, must be a new concept?

    this is worrying..........

    We have KFC rattling the sabre in the South Atlantic. China launching a new Aircraft carrier and still about to bang heads with Japan and Korea over islands in the south china sea.

    We have the same old tensions between North and South Korea

    Pirates in the Indian Ocean........and Came-moron cuts the MOD budget by 25%.

    We have what? 13 frigates, 4 destroyers, NO aircraft carriers and even if we did, we don't have any aircraft to fly off them......... I don't know about anyone else but I certainly don't feel safe anymore.........

    Unless you live on a boat in the middle of the indian ocean, you have little to worry about.

    If I were Taiwanese or Japanese I'd be very concerned about increasingly rampant Chinese nationalism, militarism and expansionism. The worst part is that we're the mugs who are paying for this by allowing our production facilities to be shut down and moved to China, and for buying Chinese products produced by slave labourers. This short sighted false economy may well prove to have been the most stupid thing Europeans and North Americans have ever done in a thousand years of our history.

    You are one dumb fcuker!

    Where do you think this policy project is going?

    As for imperialism, what about Tibet?

    The one thing anybody with half-a-brain knows for sure: China are on their way to regional sea dominance within the next 10 years or less.

    Exactly the point!!! If you and I can see that, why can't came-moron? Our armed forces need to be 4 times bigger than they are now.

    We need the defence budget to be increased now so that in 10 years we are ready to meet this threat when it comes, and it IS coming, believe me.

    Although I have been a solid Conservative voter all my life I knew that Cameron was a 'bad 'un' from the start and I did not vote in the last election.

    He has no worthwhile experience and is most unsuited for the position of P.M. FFS he couldn't even answer simple questions about the Magna Carta on US TV.

    The fact he joined with the devil to create this bunch of tossers now in charge instead of going to the country again says it all.

    Now I live in Uruguay, and despite paying UK taxes I shall never go back to the UK, I just cannot bring myself to experience the utter wanton disregard for what our country once stood for.

    In my view, and I hate writing this, the UK is sinking close to Argentina: just give it another few years and there will be nothing to pick between them.

    #11 “I have been a solid Conservative voter all my life”

    I'd never have guessed =)

    “ I knew that Cameron was a 'bad 'un' from the start...He has no worthwhile experience and is most unsuited for the position of P.M. FFS he couldn't even answer simple questions about the Magna Carta on US TV”

    We can agree about that

    “In my view, and I hate writing this, the UK is sinking close to Argentina: just give it another few years and there will be nothing to pick between them”

    So who will be our Cristina/Chavez figure? I hope its George Galloway, he'd be a great PM, the opposite of the shallow PR man Cameron
