Blairs Legacy: A Coastal navy

The 25th anniversary of the invasion of the Falklands seems like a good reason to bump this thread.
I remember that the Navy was going through a very similar period just before the Falklands kicked off. There was even talk of the Illustrious or the Ark being flogged to Australia. In fact John Nott was looking to flog quite a bit of the fleet off to, errr, South American Countries.

What ever happened to the commitment we were given to a 55 Ship Navy? How long before the Andrew falls below critical mass?

Politicians of whatever stripe seem to have forgotten that we live on a Island and depend on trade to survive.
25 years today since Hermes and Invincible started the journey south
