Right move; Yourview.

THE treaty signed between the UK and France on conventional military cooperation is to be welcomed, and is logical in the current economic climate. However, it should not be used as a substitute for military capability.

This sort of cooperation is not unusual among many other countries and France and Germany and the Scandinavian countries have a long history of working together successfully.

Cooperation is not a substitute for military capability however.

This agreement does not fill the gap which has been created by the decisions in the strategic defence review to scrap Nimrod, and which has left the UK without its vital maritime reconnaissance fleet.
