Well Lusty is up for disposal in 2014 when Ocean comes out of refit; anyway, what on earth would the French want an Invincible-class carrier for? It's not as if the Aeronavale operate Harriers, is it? ;-)
Would make a fun target and artificial reef.

Who's bright idea was it to show the enemy how low our capabilities have sunk? Can't they find it out in their usual dirty frog way - in sneaky, underhand spying?

Cameron's? Maybe he's trying a bit of moral blackmail on the Elysee Palace, although given that he snubbed Monsieuer Flanby pre-election it would suggest that this strategy has little chance of success.
