    Britain looks to restore ship-building industry with new frigates

    Britain will announce on Thursday the preferred bidder for the design of the new Type 31 frigate, the government said, as it looks to rebuild its once-mighty shipbuilding industry.Babcock, BAE Systems and Atlas Elektronik UK have all submitted designs for the frigate.
    They will be built in Britain and the government will buy at least five, with the first set to be in the water by 2023.
    "(The) UK is an outward-looking island nation, and we need a shipbuilding industry and Royal Navy that reflect the importance of the seas to our security and prosperity," Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement.
    "I am convinced that by working together we will see a renaissance in this industry which is so much part of our island story Ė so let's bring shipbuilding home."
    The programme will support over 2,500 jobs across the UK, including its supply chain, with all the different parts of the frigates being assembled and built at British shipyards.

    Building an industry on the backs on govt demands. That is sure to end in economic success. They should try building civilian shops like yachts and cruise ships instead.

    They know the US is going to pick up its toys and go home and they will need to provide for their own defense.
