United Kingdom prepares to flex military muscle after Brexit

Gavin Williamson

The vessel would carry two squadrons of British and US F-35 jets as well, he will say.

In a speech to the Royal United Services Institute think tank in London on Monday, Williamson said the 65,000-ton carrier Queen Elizabeth - which was commissioned in late 2017 - would also make appearances in the Mediterranean and Middle East along the way as Britain flexed its military muscles post-Brexit.

"I want to see our armed forces embracing transformation at an ever-faster rate, keeping pace with technological change, enhancing our mass and increasing our lethality, " Williamson said.

The Conservative minister will say that Britain must be prepared to take military action against countries that "flout global law" or risk being seen as a "paper tiger".

Britain and its allies must be prepared "to use hard power to support our interests".

China has laid claim to nearly all of the strategic South China Sea which is viewed as important for shipping lanes and potential resources.

The task of the country he took, in particular, and opposition to "resurgent Russia" in the conditions of termination of the Agreement on the elimination of intermediate and shorter-range missiles (INF Treaty).

In a separate development that month, Williamson unveiled the country's new Defence Arctic Strategy, citing ever-increasing threats in the region and Russia's alleged attempts to militarise it.

Britain must be ready to use "hard power" against Russian Federation and China, defense chief Gavin Williamson said as London prepares to deploy its largest warship into contested Pacific waters.

Setting out how he plans to spend some of the £1.8 billion extra funding for defence secured previous year, Mr Williamson will promise a "very significant additional investment" in cyber capabilities including improving the UK's ability to carry out its own online attacks and protect against hackers.

He said recent actions by China and Russian Federation had "blurred" the boundary between peace and war, warning that the United Kingdom.

"To talk, but fail to act, risks our nation being seen as little more than a paper tiger".

The defence secretary won an extra £1.8bn for defence in the last budget.

"That is why "Global Britain" needs to be much more than a pithy phrase: it has to be about action, and our armed forces represent the best of "Global Britain" in action", he said.

"Instead of simply engaging in yet more sabre-rattling, Gavin Williamson should get to grips with the crisis in defence funding that is happening on his watch".
