So, who gets it?
According to the BBC Website:
Doh! I know that, where in defence is it going?
New chairs for the MoD main building?
I know where the money wont go... where it is needed.
In fact, just thought. Why not let people bid for a slice of it. Not the branches of the services, but individual soldiers.
Personally, I would like to holiday or a new exhaust for my car.
emphasis on BBC thinking Â£400 rather than Â£400,000,000
Ah, Got prat mode on, I kiss your bottom
I was wondering where this extra money was coming from, but just received our latest LOA review. Bastards. The Chancellor Giveth and then he removeth with bloody interest
Â£400 is not a lot and sums up Labours commitment to the Armed Forces. That much wouldn't even pay for half a face lift for the Poodle of Darkness. Might buy him a new ginger tweed jacket in which he can appear in a few more Buff-Hoon inspired apologies for the dreadful troops under his command.
I have seen the Â£400 M but I have also seen on sky news "13.07 Â£3.7bn more spent on defence" whats that about ? This year or last ? Any ideas........ thanks
MY vote's for left handed L85A2's...
It's the same #3.7 billion promised last July. Double-counting, a Neue Arbeit speciality. Take away the cost overrun on procurement projects(Astute, Typhoon, Brimstone, Nimrod MRA4 etc), Broon's refusal to pay for #500m-worth of costs in Iraq, and there's not a lot of change. In fact, we'd better have a whip-round.
OK Â£400, that will pay the bank for this weeks tea at MOD Central
