Cheers Jacko. I suspect the answers are all there in the latter part of your post, to differing degrees. They did some across early and I suspect some working to get stuff finished at Marham may...

That's true, the conundrum being striking a balance between what you judge you can afford (bearing in mind also that "affordability" reflects how you regard competing priorities, so it's not an...

All things are possible but we may be getting a little ahead of ourselves by jumping to conclusions that fit the prevailing PPruNe narrative. I'm going to wait and see what happens next.

Given all the scepticism, I'd suggest Defiant. And besides, what could possibly go wrong with a name like that.

1. Government allows UK design leadership to atrophy over many years, turns us into subcontractor to the world, lacks the balls to craft a positive UK-led way forward that shows faith in the UK...

I don't doubt for a minute that Williamson would have referenced the strength of backbench feeling on the issue and the extent of Tory backbench support for more defence spending - why wouldn't he. ...

Undeniably the runes aren't lining up in the most helpful way. Then again, "the papers are saying" is one thing. I suspect we'll see a smaller increase than what might otherwise have been possible...
