British government plans to lease aircraft carrier to another country

105

The British press has published information about the plans of the Government of the United Kingdom to go to reduce the size of the army and fleet. The Sunday Times stated that plans of this nature are reflected in the Conservative’s special election manifesto. This manifesto is represented today by the leader of the Conservative Party, the head of the British government, Boris Johnson.


Noteworthy is the statement that one of the two British newest aircraft carriers Johnson is going to lease. The material says that the aircraft carrier is planning to transfer as a rental military property of "one of the NATO countries." The possibility of transferring a warship to the US Navy is being considered.

Earlier, the head of the British defense department Ben Wallace announced his readiness to lease the aircraft carrier.

Comments on the possible lease of a British aircraft carrier from US officials at the moment have not been published.

To date, the number of armed forces in the UK is about 73 thousand people. According to the plan of Boris Johnson, the number should decrease to 60-65 thousand people. It is argued that the funding options for the British army will not be reduced, remaining at approximately 2% of GDP. The material says that this approach will increase the "specific funding" - for example, increase the level of monetary allowance of military personnel.

        And what? This is an idea! good Here is what the Ukrainian "expert" who escaped from Crimea offers:According to the expert, while new ships will be built at the Ukrainian shipyards, the gap in the Navy must be filled up with rental vessels.
        “We have no choice but to now, until we restore our fleet, turn to the practice of Lend-Lease and rent some ships as aid. In parallel, build what we can, ships and boats, and in parallel lay new corvettes and frigates. But all this period, when we are building, it needs to be closed.
        Even renting according to the old well-known Lend-Lease principle is also a problem, because it is an international agreement, budgets, this ship needs to be prepared. And this time, while this issue is being resolved, we need to ask the allies to ensure naval deterrence by the presence of ships in the Black Sea, ”said Klimenko

                That's the way our guardians for the construction of aircraft carriers argue. And what the construction and operation of these devices will cost, they do not care.

              Everything is very simple here. Admirals need a fleet, because they fight on it if something happens. Their lordships do not need a fleet, give them optimization. And aircraft carriers are being built for a long time. So it turns out that even if at some point the admirals sell theirs, then they will again repel the government’s attacks.

              With these ABs, a generally funny story came out. Their lordships from the Admiralty, mindful of the fate of the previous "Queen Elizabeth", destroyed by the Treasury directly on the slipway, included fines for the abandonment of the building in the contract for the construction of new AV, exceeding the cost of the AB itself. Plus, election problems were superimposed - the rejection of the completion of the “Prince” meant a loss of about 50 jobs in total, and in the most important districts. And against the prime minister with his plans "enough for the fleet and one AB"its own party came forward. As a result, both ABs had to be completed.
              But the economical parliamentarians did not let up - and already in 2010, even before the first AB was launched, they wanted to leave RN only one AB, and sell or rent another one. In one form or another, these plans regularly pop up to this day - for the "white elephants", taking into account the cost of the air group, turned out to be a rather expensive toy.

          V. - parliamentary monarchy. It does not have a single constitutional act; V.'s unwritten constitution took shape over the course of several centuries and consists of parliamentary laws (the so-called statutory law), judicial precedents, and constitutional agreements or customs. The statutory basis of the constitution of V. consists of several important acts: Magna Carta 1215, Petition for Law 1628, Habeas Corps Act 1679, “Bill of Rights” 1689, Westminster Statute 1931, Act on People's Representation 1948, Act on the Reform of the House of Lords 1968, Act on the national representation of 1969 and other supreme bodies of state power. The head of state is the king (queen).

          This is a quote from the Great Soviet Encyclopedia. you are the victim of education and television.

    The contents of this cost a lot here is not very cheap, and they are leasing. This is a pure commercial move and, in addition to everything, they will also supply spare parts for pieces of paper.

    Of all NATO countries, only large countries can be considered:
    The United States probably won’t take it, because there are enough normal aircraft carriers in their numbers, purely to support an ally they can pay
    Canada I think there is not enough money, but they from NATO really need all
    Germany is likely to be of no interest, they have more serious problems
    Spain definitely will not pull for the money
    France will not take, because there is a degol
    Italy has a 20 year old Cavour, will not change
    All other countries will not pull in any way.

    From non-NATO:
    Japan, I think, will be given to her as a result
    India, build their own
    Brazil is not enough money
    Persian oil monarchies, most likely they will not be sold
