Navy will spend time to “analyse and contemplate” options to fill the gaps between old and new subs. Morrison was stampeded into this moronity, Biden getting a full load of revenge for the ambushes and abuse he experienced in Glasgow.

Biden has a lot of domestic contracts at risk, cajoled PM Albanese in Tokyo who confirmed his initial agreement. Paul Keating stated the obvious on ABC TV, Australia should leave the north Pacific to America and Japan while Australia nurtures its regional interests which include the largest Muslim nation on earth. The AUKUS process is divorced from “due diligence” through Australian agencies and parliaments and has grave implications for intergenerational equity.
