4 billion pounds…. money well spent?

Is it really necessary to stump up almost 4 billion (yes, BILLION) pounds for two new huge aircraft carriers for the British Navy when we don’t have the armour to keep our soldiers alive? Ok, so there’s more jobs, for an industry that’s almost dead, but think of what that could’ve done on healthcare, social welfare, inner cities, or even charity. The mind boggles, but hey, we prop up the defence industry and have for the last century, so why stop now?
