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.
