Prime Minister Statement on Integrated Review - 16 Mar 21

Boris about to make a statement.
 
He's already doing it on BBC Parliament. They are taking questions already. Starmer asked him to confirm whether there were any cuts, he obviously completely avoided the question, as per usual.
It took me so bloody long to post that.
 
22nd March for Defence Secretary's statement on modernisation.

Three times.
Why would he answer Starmer? Starmer will have seen the review well before release, he's just grandstanding as usual.

Just read it.

The Army has nothing mentioned by name, whereas both RN and RAF do.

Think we have to wait for next week for that. But a claim of 24 frigates by the end of the decade is interesting. T26/31/32 or did he mean 24 Escorts which would in clufe the T42s, which would suggest around 5 T32s unless they bump up the numbers on the existing programs

Well, at least that is a boost to British shipyards.
I mean , now we are out of EU we can get them built where we like, right ?

can you name a current British warship that hasn't been built in a British yard....? Actually, to be scrupulously accurate and save you the bother, I'll name both of them. HMS Magpie and HMS Protector.

We always did, and always could. EU procurement rules only ever required that any competion held must be open and transparent

His point still stands. Now we can do warship procurement the way we do NHS PPE procurement. Do any of Hancock's drinking buddies have a shipyard?
