Tres bon!
I would say the bonus is upsetting the Chinese. Shafting the French is the real prize. :-)
I totally agree and am over the moon they have put the boot into France .
so when push comes to shove over Taiwan, Britain is all set to be dragged into another American war. Those always go so well!

well you've won the prize for the biggest leap of illogic in history jno me old china! PMSL!
Good grief they have not abandoned NATO -its no more than a trade deal really and will hopefully create British jobs.
you seriously think this has nothing to do with the South China Sea? Dream on.
""Minister Jean-Yves le Drian called the decision to end the contract “contrary to the letter and spirit of the cooperation which prevailed between France and Australia”.""

He reportedly said that with no hint of self awareness or embarrassment, failing totally to anticipate the irony oozing out of the whinge. This is the French we are talking about ... the French who think that an "agreement" is only there to facilitate their own wants and needs whilst holding the partner hostage to their demands. The original practitioners of abusive partnerships as a self serving tactic. It is time also to draw a line in the sand with the psychopathic Chinese ambitions towards World dominance by force. I see that the French are using this as another opportunity to call for a new EUSSR "army". I have news for them. They have got one. It is not however going to be doing their bidding. Quite the opposite. The re invented mameluke army that has been assembled in the European States will be fervently and viciously anti European.
The UK is now in a arms race with China.

Who do you image will win that one ?

( China GDP $26 Trillion. UK $3 Trillion).
//The UK is now in a arms race with China.//

Who says?
19.16 Spot on APG . Britain has got to find someone to trade with now they have shot themselves in the foot. No more trading with your next door neighbour, trade with Countries thousands of miles away, that should help the economy.
TTT, why do you feel happy that the French aren't happy? What have you got against the French? France and England used to be the same country, yet you still seem to hate them.
England and France have had alliances and even dual monarchy, but we have never been the same country.

Ahhh the Chinese said it. You of course in your own "stupid" way eagerly seize upon the bluster ... it being a tool(haha another comparison to be had there) as a means to be critical of all things British. Bless.
Spungle, all the same, why do some people hate the 'other'? Our kings came from French kings. Richard the Lionheart is famous in France as a French king. The druids were French as much as the English druids were English. Our Kings came from France, Germany, Holland, and so on. There was a pan-European gang of royals who had the whole continent stitched up within their families.

If your enemy says you are in an arms race.
You are in an arms race.

not like gromit to be anti British!
I don't understand les Grenouilles....after all they have a deal for conventional subs and I am sure that the Ozzies still need some of those. What the UK and the USA are talking about is nuclear subs - without the nuclear missiles, as I understand it. So why get in a Gallic garlic and cognac-laden huff? Maybe they could give us some patrol boats in exchange for 'considering' what they could offer?
No need for an arms race, just cut off diplomatic ties with Argos, job done.
