At the rather odd time of 10 O'clock last night, Boris, Biden and the Aussie PM made a live television address to saying they are strengthening their military ties and creating a new military alliance between the three of them, this came out of the blue. As part of this pact, the UK and US will help Australia build a fleet of nuclear power submarines, although the subs will only ever carry conventional weapons.
I watched the broadcast and although never mentioned, this is all to do with China, as Australia is feeling increasingly threatened by the Chinese. However today, this happened:
Australia has backed out of a deal with the French to build a fleet of diesel submarines and the French are furious, quite understandably considering the deal was agreed in 2017. Oh well!
