A Good Question

And one, just for once, from Con Coughlin of the Telegraph.
".....I can’t help thinking that if George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, can find seven billion pounds to bail out the profligate Irish, then why can’t we afford to keep afloat the Royal Navy’s flagship, together with its iconic fighters?"
Ok, so we would have had to borrow yet more money - but when we're £4.8 trillion in debt, what is a few more billion?
