Last weeks news that the army were prepared to give up units to defend money for armoured vehicles for Afghanstan really bugged me. We have wasted so much dough on kit over the years, and now this. So I was thinking, maybe the government are fed "Crazy People" adverts (Dudley Moore movie - mentally ill making up adverts like "Volvo - They're boxy, but they are good"). So. "Eurofighter. If the Cold War breaks out it'll make some kind of expensive sense". "The L85. The repair cost the same as the rifle but it works now". "The LSW - Helping you to understand why you should have paid the extra for the Minimi". "Jackel. Spend heavily now, and later you'll be able to spend heavily and wisely".
