Navy head appeals for funds

Blair is still trying to destroy the navy. Not contents with halving the size of the navy, he is under funding them to a degree that they need another £1 billion to cope with the demands placed on them which is one third of their budget.

The navy is so desperate for cash that Admiral Sir Jonathan Band who is head of the navy had actually started appealing to journalists to try and get the government to listen and give them more money for ships.

BBC defence correspondent Paul Wood said Sir Jonathan told reporters the navy "doesn't come for nothing".

Paul Wood said Sir Jonathan had claimed Britain faced a choice between remaining as a first division sea-going nation or, as the officer put it, turning into Belgium.
