the 'what if' excuse for keeping so many is getting rather lame now. the answer to 'what if' once they have finished destroying capability is simple. no need to set up a working group just give the task to a corporal.what the world needs is an enema, make that two - just to give it a sense of purpose.

a senior Chinese officer has said, “all the great nations in the world own aircraft carriers – they are symbols of a great nation”. That’s why China has just commissioned its first. By the same token, to opt for a “carrier gap” of some years is to abandon your responsibilities.

How long can this no-story run for? Nothing new here - it was all set out in Levene and the SDSR.
In a minute we will see a story about cuts in senior officers' perks..... oh yes that was last Sunday.
Get with the programme guys - this is August A QUIET MONTH FOR NEWS, so anything that can be recycled will be, and the MoD is no exception.
A far more significant outpouring from our SofS, and has almost passed ARRSE by is this little gem from a couple of weeks back:
Op Olympics Teaches Hammond "Contingent Capability"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
