The British Government’s latest idea for saving money is to share an aircraft carrier with France. It is the mother of bean-counters’ solutions.

A real smart idea considering we sunk most of the French Navy in 1940 to avoid the possibility of it falling into German hands and have spent most of the last 1,000 years in conflict with our neighbours.

And France’s great navel contribution of recent years? Sinking a Greenpeace ship in 1985 because of its interference in their nuclear testing site in the Pacific.
