The Price of Admiralty

The Royal Navy may have life yet:

The government is looking at the possibility of reversing plans to mothball one Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier, and could keep both of the new ships for the Royal Navy, it has been reported.

Good news for the West. Is this a side benefit of the Libya War? Relying on land air bases against a coastal enemy could not have sat well with the British defense establishment and government.
