According to an article in today's Sunday Times a senior Air Force officer (would appear to be AVM Bagwell) has said that the Typhoon will be approaching obsolescence by 2015 after 8 years in service. R.I.P. the RAF.
This says approaching obselescence. Where does it say or indicate will be withdrawn from service? Apart from the seemingly misleading thread title that is! And in any event, what does the good AVM or whoever imagine will replace it? UAVs? I understand they are not seen as a panacea for anything at present.

Is this the rumour mill pumping out field fertilizer again.
