The government that scrapped all its carriers and only carrier-capable a/c doesn't know. No UK gov't has ever held to its own defense review. Personally, I think one carrier with Super Hornets will be retained. Remember UK governments put 7 billion USD into Nimrod MR4, then scrapped it. All the money is needed for the nanny state, so Britain is done as a world power, I hate to say.
