Rule Britannia - bwahahahaha!

Well, of course they're cutting their fleet in half. They're capturing the peace dividend now that there's no Soviet Union or other serious threats...

Oh, wait. Never mind.

So much for the sun never setting on the Union Jack. Well, OK, it's been a good 60 years or so since that was the case, but this is a pretty serious abdication of their duty to defend their own interests.

Looks like the British are moving toward the same stance as the other western social democracies. They're allowing the American taxpayer to provide the majority of their national security and using the savings to finance their bloated socialist welfare spending (i.e. the EU, Japan, South Korea).
