59. I can't speak for the British parliment, sorry
So I'll ask you the same question I asked you envision a future in which we will match up in a conventional war with China or Russia, really the only two non-allied countries with the capability to put up any sort of air resistance? How many F-22s are in service now? How many more do you think we need? In the post cold war era, we don't need vast quantities of an aircraft primarily desgined for an air-to-air combat role.

Further, what the heck does the size of Britain have to do with anything? Land mass has nothing at all to do with buying power. Britain my be slightly larger that Alabama but it has a population of 61 million people. Alabama has 4.4 million, so lets not make non-sensical arguments, yeah?
