Wow, Her Majesty's Navy is being given a right kick in the stern. The Ark Royal is for the knackers yard almost straight away and the surface fleet is being cut from 24 to 19 as 4000 personnel get the chop.
The Harrier is being scrapped and the Nimrod has been cancelled. Some RAF bases are to close. The Army will lose 7000 personnel and 100 tanks and artillery pieces are to be scrapped.
