Army, Navy war of words over the carriers

The heads of the British Army and Royal Navy have engaged in a war of words over the forthcoming CVF aircraft carriers. The head of the Army General Sir Richard Dannatt said the carriers were irrelevant to modern warfare (which must be news to the US Navy and the Indian and Chinese navies who are going flat out to build carriers). Admiral Sir Jonathon Band replied that Britain would need high end capabilities in the future. There was some analogy involving golf as well which i won't repeat here!
