The Australian’s Foreign Editor Greg Sheridan says the only thing to happen from Australia’s new submarine deal with America and the United Kingdom is “we’ve killed our conventional submarines”.

“If we start constructing these subs in Adelaide in 10 years’ time, we won’t have built any subs for thirty years before then, it will be two decades at least before we get a sub after that,” Mr Sheridan told Sky News Australia.

“All that the government’s promised us so far is that we’re not going to have any submarine capability at all at the end of the Collins.

“And for the next 20 to 30 years, the only capability we’re going to have is the Collins capability, which is already old and reaching the end of its useful life.

“All that’s its really announced is that we are going to have nothing.”
