Frankly cobblers. We could finish the TSR2 and have a plane better than the f35, it would be ours and it would take very little time. We could take the Harrier and beef up the engine and thin the wings a bit to make it faster - that wouldnt take long and we could keep using the Harrier until its replacement is ready (at least we were clever enough to redirect the engine rather than create some awful fan arrangement with flapping doors that will fall off and mean the manouverability of the Harrier can't be matched by the 'new' plane)
