Where are Labour going to get its cheap Ships?

Who has ships we can buy for $60 million

Labour have adopted a Defence policy “holus-bolus” from the Select Committee because they don’t have the intellectual grunt to write a policy of their own. The report is unsound, has no costings and is internally inconsistent – so it has a lot in common with other Labour/Alliance policies.

For example: where are Labour/Alliance going to find 2 supply ships that they can buy for 60 million dollars (as set out at page 88 of the Report)? Perhaps they will be under the pillow with the other goodies left by the tooth fairies.
