Tories float a good idea.

carriersinking.jpgIt's not often I agree with the Tories on defence, with Labour and the Lib Dems on the other side. The Tories, it seems, are getting ready to save the £3.5bn it would cost to build two new aircraft carriers. It's all a bit implicit, sure, but even to be considering this is major progress.

These projects are only ever defended as job-creation schemes, even though the same money could create far more jobs doing something actually useful. 

I understand that: people need to work, and the unions' position is entirely defensible. Unlike an aircraft carrier, or Labour/Lib Dem defence policy.
