Its farsical [sic] to suggest that ten years is required to reactivate a UK MPA fleet
Afraid not. Maybe just a little pessimistic.

Unless the MOD issue a UOR, the decision will not be taken until 2015 and then the implementation is going to be 3-5 years if all goes well, and when was the last time that happened? From where I'm sitting I can see no circumstances where a UOR is in any way possible.

Again...I would be delighted to be wrong.

you forgot to mention it was free, unlike an MPA replacement
au contraire
