This is the opening segment of our exclusive interview with Bob Ainsworth, former Secretary of State for Defence under Gordon Brown. In responding to recent defence cuts, he openly criticises David Cameron and the Coalition government for what he calls short-sighted decisions. He further cites budgetary deficit figures put forward by the Coalition as being grossly inflated - and voices his concerns for the future of Royal Navy aircraft carrier capability.
