I reckon its still possible to buy the Harrier airframes back from the Yanks, probably at an inflated price, refurbish them and use them as a stopgap measure until the F35 comes into service in another EIGHT YEARS on the new carriers. The Tory government should swallow any pride they might have had, admit they made a mistake and DO THE RIGHT THING! Get the Harriers back. We’re talking about the defence of this country not the insignificant bickerings of the two main parties and factions within the parties. MAN UP!
